Need a highly reliable laser with excellent beam qualities for Raman spectroscopy?

The ventus 532 is built for Raman spectroscopy applications, with an M2 close to unity allowing for a tighter focal point hence a higher intensity. Raman spectroscopy is a weak process, so you need a high intensity IR necessary to obtain a good signal​. The tight focal point is also important for spatial resolution. If you want to […]

Localization Microscopy

Read the recently published microscopy article published in Wiley Online, PhotonicsViews. The article focuses on localization microscopy, and how high–power continuous wave lasers can be used in super-resolution microscopy.   Super-resolution microscopy overcomes the Abbe diffraction barrier allowing resolution greater than 200-300 nm. The article details the principles of single-molecule localization microscopy (SMLM), and how it enables improved resolution by […]

Watch our Two-Photon Microscopy animation now

Achieving high resolution and increasing imaging speeds are two critical factors for effective two-photon microscopy. Our newest animation demonstrates how our helixx, with a repetition rate of 250 MHz, is tailored to the decay times of typical fluorophores to reduce photobleaching and toxicity and increase imaging speed and cell view times. Its short pulse duration […]

Enhancing two photon microscopy

Two-photon microscopy has many advantages over conventional microscopy including; minimal photo-bleaching effect and sample damage, higher imaging depth of live cells, higher excitation efficiency, and simultaneous excitation of multiple fluorophores with the promotion of autofluorescence. Ultrashort (<10 fs) pluses enhance the two-photon microscopy technique. The peak power for a given average output is much higher […]
