Using resonance scanners and ultrafast laser in FT-CARS

In this published paper by Hashimoto et al. (2018), ‘Ultra-broadband rapid-scan Fourier-transform CARS spectroscopy with sub-10-fs optical pulses’ leverages the benefits of products from Novanta. The experimental set-up contains a venteon ultra from Laser Quantum and a resonant scanner, CRS12 kHz, from Cambridge Technology. The paper demonstrates ultra-broadband Fourier-Transform Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering (FT-CARS) spectroscopy. […]

New Technique Combining Expansion Microscopy and Lattice Light-Sheet Microscopy

A recent article in optics.org highlights the combination of expansion microscopy with lattice light-sheet microscopy. This new technique allows researchers to visualise spatial relationships between proteins across millimetre-scale dimensions. It counteracts many of the limitations of optical microscopy, electron microscopy, and super-resolution microscopy and is making incredible inroads into understanding the complexity of the brain. The research […]
