4 Tips to Achieve High-Quality Imaging in Microscopy Applications

Microscopy is an important technique across many disciplines both in research and commercially. There are many techniques used in microscopy including, spanning confocal, lattice light sheet and multiphoton—and for all, image resolution is a key factor. Resolution plays a big role in microscopy’s success as it refers to the microscope’s ability to select detail in […]

Terahertz Cyclotron Resonance Spectrometer

Dr. Darren Graham tells us about the development of the terahertz cyclotron resonance spectrometer at the Photon Science Institute, University of Manchester. Cyclotron resonance has been about since the 1960’s and the technique has led to the development of new semiconductor materials, producing light-emitting diodes and transistors. In order to perform the techniques, you need […]

Latest PLIM research released

In a recent scientific paper published in the Journal of Innovative Optical Health Sciences by The Core Imaging Facility at the University of Ulm, the use of fast repetition rate fs pulsed lasers is investigated to advance PLIM (phosphorescence lifetime imaging) microscopy. PLIM is traditionally carried out with 80 MHz Ti:Sapphire lasers, however this paper […]

Ultra-low noise

Visit the axiom 532 web page to view the detailed specifications of the newest ultra-low noise laser from Laser Quantum. The axiom 532 lends itself to Ti:Sapphire pumping as the pump laser noise is transferred directly to the noise of the Ti:Sapphire laser. When the typical noise value is <0.02% RMS, this factor is greatly […]

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 cancer detection techniques via microscope

Oxford Nanoimaging, a UK-based super-resolution imaging company, has showcased a groundbreaking new desktop microscope which allows scientists to see individual molecules in living cells. Their super-resolution microscope can measure molecules as close as 20 nanometers apart; by comparison, a sheet of paper is around 100,000 nm in thickness. ONI hopes to use this imaging technique […]
