    Abstract

    We describe the topic of beam shaping (sculpting) the phase and amplitude of light for applications in Biophotonics. Methods to create and apply 'non-diffracting' modes in cell transfection and micromanipulation will be discussed as well as a new method to correct for aberrations in situ and overcome the diffraction limit.
