I recently read about the discovery and use in confocal microscopy of the "white laser", a laser containing all the waveleghts of the visible lights and others (actually, the laser is not "white", it is a monochromatic pulse laser passed between a non linear response device ).
My questions are:
- in what applications anyone can take advantages of sending all this wavelenghts on the object to observe?
- how it is possible to detect all this wavelenghts? ( I had seen that microscopes available had max. 32 channels in acquisition... so if I would like to read 1000, 2000 for some application? ).
Ps. pardon for my bad english.
