SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 26, 2011 — For deep tissue imaging, Spectra-Physics, a Newport Corp. brand, has released the InSight DeepSee ultrafast laser system.
Based on proprietary technology, the turnkey laser system delivers nearly double the tuning range of existing ultrafast lasers, according to the company, and provides seamless access to long infrared wavelengths for deep in vivo imaging. Robust and fully automated, it provides easy-to-use, hands-free operation, freeing users to focus on their research.
It offers 680- to 1300-nm continuous tuning from a single source, short 100-fs pulse widths and high peak power levels into the infrared where imaging penetration depth is maximized. The proprietary and patent-pending DeepSee dispersion pr-compensator delivers the short pulses through a microscope to the sample for maximum fluorescence. A dual-wavelength option is available for advanced imaging techniques, including uncaging, coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering imaging and multimodal imaging.
The laser can be seamlessly tuned, with the click of a mouse, to any wavelength within seconds. Its beam characteristics are optimized for multiphoton imaging.
