According to the quantum theory of radiation, simultaneous multi-photon absorption by a single molecule could take place through a transition process involving intermediate state(s) of the combined system consisting of the input photon field and the molecule. The probability of the m (≥2)-photon absorption process is proportional to the mth power of the local light intensity. Based on this property, the highly multi-photon active materials and devices can be utilized to implement optical power limiting, optical stabilization and reshaping, and three-dimensional (3D) data storage and microfabrication. Moreover, based on the m-photon absorption induced frequency upconversion emission, researchers have realized high efficient m-photon pumped frequency upconversion lasing as well as frequency upconversion 3D scanning laser microscopy.

Keywords:   Multi-photon absorption, optical limiting, optical stabilization, optical reshaping, multi-photon pumped lasing, three-dimensional data storage, microfabrication, scanning laser microscopy
