Two-photon-induced fluorescence is observed from the photodynamic phycobiliprotein phycoerythrin. Temporal, spectral, and intensity-dependent properties of the two-photon-induced fluorescence emission from phycoerythrin excited by a 1-06-σmlaser beam are reported. The measured two-photon absorption cross section of phycoerythrin is an order of magnitude larger than that of Rhodamine 6G. The potential applications of phycobiliproteins for two-photon-induced fluorescence for microscopy of three-dimensional biological samples and three-dimensional optical memory are discussed. © 1997 Optical Society of America.
