In vivo imaging in the second near- infrared biological window (NIR-II) is in its early stages but will undoubtedly affect life science research on many levels, both in preclinical and clinical work and in universities and medicine. Research in biology and medicine will be fundamentally changed.
The NIR-II (shortwave infrared, or SWIR) imaging modality is not affected by drawbacks of light propagation in living tissues in the same way that other techniques are. Thus, it enables much deeper real-time imaging of optical probes in the organism, with much higher resolutions (Figure 1).
