Abstract

Reflective objectives (ROs) can reduce chromatic aberration across a wide wavelength range in multiphoton microscopy (MPM). However, a systematic characterization of the performance of ROs has not been carried out. In this paper, we analyze the performance of a 0.5 numerical-aperture (NA) RO and compare it with a 0.55 NA standard glass objective (SO), using two-photon fluorescence (TPF) and second-harmonic generation (SHG). For experiments extending ∼1 octave in visible and NIR wavelengths, the SO introduces defocusing errors of ∼25% for TPF images of sub-diffraction fluorescent beads and ∼10% for SHG images of collagen fibers. For both imaging systems, the RO provides a corresponding error of ∼4%. This work highlights the potential usefulness of ROs for multimodal MPM applications.
