Spectra-Physics Gets Imaging Patent
Spectra-Physics of Santa Clara, Calif., a division of Newport Corp., has announced the issuance of US patent No. 7,962,046 for its DeepSee multiphoton imaging technology. Used in the Mai Tai DeepSee and the InSight DeepSee products, the technique enables automated, deep 3-D imaging of live tissue in neuroscience, cell biology and other biological applications. Used in multiphoton imaging for automated precompensation of ultrafast laser pulses for optical dispersion in microscopes, the technology delivers short pulses and high peak power to the sample, resulting in enhanced image quality and deeper imaging penetration into tissue in vivo.
