Oxxius SA has released the SLIM-550, a yellow diode-pumped solid-state laser that emits up to 200 mW at 550 nm. The instrument features a monolithic resonator, optical noise of <0.2% rms and pointing stability of <5 µrad. It consumes as little as 10 W. The device is suitable for fluorescence applications, enabling efficient light collection from phycoerythrin (PE) without unwanted excitation of allophycocyanin (APC). It also enables optical excitation of fluorescent proteins, including DsRed and dTomato.
