Live Mouse Skin Cell Imaging

I captured the natural fluorescence of mouse skin cells using a laser-scanning microscope with a resolution of roughly 0.6 microns. I reconstructed the true-color pixel-by-pixel fluorescence using a program I wrote in IDL. Hope you enjoy the beauty of non-destructive, non-invasive, all-natural imaging of living cells. (Actual size: 100 microns x 100 microns, two-photon excitation wavelength = 764 nm.)
