Abstract

An interesting area of applying multiphoton fluorescence microscopy is in investigating the delivery of fluorescent nanoparticles (quantum dots) across biological barriers such as the skin. Fluorescence nanoparticles are nanometer in size and understanding the delivery mechanisms of these materials across the skin can be important in understanding the delivery of important biological macromolecules for therapeutic purposes. In addition, pathological diagnosis can be performed with the successful delivery of fluorescent nanoparticles.
