The non-invasive nature of optical techniques enables researchers to study a great variety of materials under conditions approaching or similar to their "natural" environment. This is especially relevant to live biological specimens, which can be studied both in-vitro and in-vivo, providing a unique insight into the dynamic processes occurring in live organisms. In recent years, the emphasis has been shifting towards the technologies that combine several different imaging techniques to study a particular biological system. Each technique then allows measuring a partially overlapping set of parameters, leading to deeper understanding of the processes occurring within that system.
