BANBURY, England, Nov. 28, 2011 — Laser Lines Ltd. is offering a modulated dual-line light engine manufactured by Cobolt AB of Solna, Sweden, and optimized for high-end optogenetics research applications.
This version of the Cobolt dual combiner offers two emission wavelengths for light-activated proteins — 473 nm (up to 50 mW) and 594 nm (up to 100 mW) — from one small box. Via an integrated silent shutter, the output beam can be modulated at up to 100 Hz with a rise time of <350 μs, with maintained 3% power stability and an rms noise of <0.3%. Each line can be individually addressed through a software application provided with the lasers, or through RS-232/USB communication interfaces.
The modulated dual combiner is suited for optogenetics applications where a high level of power stability and control of the delivered energies are required. The use of Cobolt’s HTCure technology for laser manufacturing provides robustness and insensitivity to ambient conditions, which ensures good beam overlap and beam-pointing stability.
The combiner is also available with any other two-line combination of the Cobolt 04-01 series lasers.
