For deep tissue imaging, Spectra-Physics, a Newport Corp. brand,
has introduced the InSight DeepSee ultrafast laser system, which delivers nearly
double the tuning range of existing ultrafast lasers, according to the company.
The turnkey system provides seamless access to long-infrared wavelengths for deep
in vivo imaging. Robust and automated, it provides hands-free operation. 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 DeepSee dispersion precompensator 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, and multimodal and
coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering imaging.
