Welcome to the CARS Explorer project website - Innovative contrast imaging by non-linear optics (NLO) for the observation of biological tissues in vivo and in real time, at cellular and molecular levels

CARS Explorer is a European research network funded by the European Commission within its FP7 Specific programme Cooperation, Grant Agreement number HEALTH-F5-2008-2002880. Official starting date is 1. March 2008

CARS Explorer seeks to demonstrate the concept of innovative light-based contrasting technologies for functional in situ imaging in life science and biomedical research. The ultimate goal of the consortium is to develop an endoscope based on non-linear optics (NLO) and laser pulse phase shaping.
