Abstract

The mechanical properties of cells play an important role in cell function and behavior. This paper presents recent developments that have enabled the use of laser-generated phonons (ultrasound) with sub-optical wavelengths to look inside living cells. The phonons reveal contrast from changes in the elasticity of the cell and can provide high resolution three dimensional images.
