With the development of ultrashort pulse laser systems, various nonlinear optical effects have been applied to laser scanning microscopy. These microscopes have unique imaging properties that are not available in conventional optical microscopes. In this article, laser-scanning microscopes that utilize nonlinear optical phenomena, such as second-, third-harmonic generation and coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering, are introduced. The principle and contrast mechanism of the microscopes, and their biological applications are described.
