The use of light for probing and imaging biomedical media is promising for the development of safe, noninvasive, and inexpensive clinical imaging modalities with diagnostic ability. The advent of ultrafast lasers has enabled applications of nonlinear optical processes, which allow deeper imaging in biological tissues with higher spatial resolution. This book provides an overview of emerging novel optical imaging techniques, Gaussian beam optics, light scattering, nonlinear optics, and nonlinear optical tomography of tissues and cells. It consists of pioneering works that employ different linear and nonlinear optical imaging techniques for deep tissue imaging, including the new applications of single- and multiphoton excitation fluorescence, Raman scattering, resonance Raman spectroscopy, second harmonic generation, stimulated Raman scattering gain and loss, coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy, and near-infrared and mid-infrared supercontinuum spectroscopy. The book is a comprehensive reference of emerging deep tissue imaging techniques for researchers and students working in various disciplines.

"This impressive volume represents a landmark publication on the use of optical methods for deep
biomedical imaging-a field that has been transformed by a variety of technical innovations in recent
years. Editors Shi and Alfano have secured contributions from top names in the field, for an extensive
compilation that comprehensively details the new state of the art, including forefront advances and
developments. Fully covering applications, methods and theory, this lavishly illustrated book is destined
to become a reference classic." - Prof. David L. Andrews, University of East Anglia, UK

"This very timely book provides a highly comprehensive and very authoritative coverage of novel
imaging technologies using multimodal optical spectroscopy and light scattering, aimed towards
noninvasive deep tissue diagnostic and fundamental understanding of diseases such as cancers and
brain disorders. I highly recommend this book as an introductory guide on optical imaging for students,
as well as a valuable reference for scientists, engineers, and biomedical researchers who are seeking a
better understanding of deep optical imaging in biological tissues or biomaterials in life science
research." - Prof. Paras N. Prasad, State University of New York at Buffalo, USA

"This is an excellent and up-to-date account of biomedical imaging research. The subject matter
includes the important topics of the field, including the necessary fundamental background such as
nonlinear optical processes and highly scattering optical phenomena. Each of the topics is well written
by the well-established subject matter experts, and the book is comprehensive and self-contained. The
background material is well integrated into the text with the important references included." - Dr.
Daniel A. Nolan, Corning Inc., USA

"Drs. Shi and Alfano have expertly put together an extremely strong collection of chapters written by leaders in the field of deep imaging in biomedical materials. The technical material gives a thorough background as well as a broad view of the most state-of-the-art results worldwide. This book is a must-read for both active researchers in this field and students studying the topic."
-Prof. Alan E. Willner, University of Southern California, USA
