Multiphoton Microscopy Standard Wavelengths

 

Conoptics manufactures a line of laser accessories for laser modulation, driver electronics, beam deflectors, noise reduction and optical isolators. Conoptics’ a pioneer in the manufacturing of optics and laser accessories has developed a solution for Multi-Photon Microscopy (MPM).

Multiphoton fluorescence microscopy is a powerful research tool that combines the advanced optical techniques of laser scanning microscopy with long wavelength multiphoton fluorescence excitation to capture high-resolution, three-dimensional images of specimens tagged with highly specific fluorophores.

Conoptics’ Model 350-80LA with BK (resonance-dampened) Option is a KD*P Series Electro-Optic modulator. When configured with our Model 302RM amplifier offers the ability to control laser intensity as well as high-speed shuttering. In addition, this solution can control beam attenuation and fly-back blanking with minimal dispersion and full modulation over the lasers bandwidth. The system operates center in/out with no spatial dispersion and rise/fall times of 1 micro-second.
