We will present modern trends in nonlinear microscopy spanning a multitude of different technologies from e.g. multi-photon fluorescence microscopy towards label free methods e.g. generation of second harmonic as well as nonlinear Raman microscopy (CARS). 150-word Biography: Jürgen Popp, received his Ph.D. in chemistry from the University Würzburg, Germany, 1995. After his PhD in Physical Chemistry he joined Yale University for postdoctoral work. He subsequently returned to Würzburg University where he finished his habilitation in 2002. Since 2002 he holds a chair for Physical Chemistry at the Friedrich-Schiller University Jena. Since 2006 he is also the scientific director of the Institute of Photonic Technology, Jena. His research interests are concerned Biophotonics and material sciences. He is the coordinator of the EU excellence network Photonics4Life, Editor-in-Chief Journal of Biophotonics and fellow of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy.
