For those interested in multi-photon laser-scanning microscopy. This includes researchers using MPLSM, thinking of using MPLSM, makers of microscopes, lasers, or other equipment that MPLSM depends on. TO JOIN, PLEASE ENTER A COMMENT TO THE MODERATOR THAT SAYS YOUR REAL NAME, WHERE YOU ARE, AND WHY YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THE TOPIC OF THIS GROUP. All relevant requests are approved. Thanks! It has been administered since its inception in 1994 by Steve M. Potter, PhD (http://neuro.gatech.edu/groups/potter/potter.html), and was previously known as the tplsm_users, when researchers didn't fully appreciate that there was more to life than just two photons. The old archive of postings (pre May 2000) can be found at ftp://gg.caltech.edu/tplsm/ . The list is unmoderated, so whatever you send will be read by all members. Please be careful to check the "To:" field before hitting "Reply", to avoid sending a personal note to the whole group. By default, replies go to everyone. I encourage all members to introduce themselves on joining, and to fill out a member profile. The older file of 'member blurbs' is also found at the above FTP site. Please keep us informed of your 2-photon (or 3-) related pubs, abstracts, symposia, conferences, special journal issues, books, etc., by announcing them to the group. Advertisements from makers of multiphoton-related equipment and supplies are fine, as long as they contain some useful and detailed specifications. We are all busy scientists; Do not waste our time with fluff or hype that just has a URL to the useful info. Put the details in your posting. A large set of old references to multi-photon papers can be found at: http://neuro.gatech.edu/groups/potter/2-photonRefs.html .
Note that there are several options available for how you read postings using egroups. If the traffic becomes high (>1/day) you may want to take advantage of the 'daily digest' feature, that appends all the posts of the day into one email,
