SANTA CLARA, Calif. — A new laser from Coherent Inc. allows simultaneous, multiwavelength excitation of multiple probes and photoactivation for nonlinear microscopy.
The Chameleon Discovery is continuously tunable from 680 to 1300 nm, with a pulse width of 100 fs and power up to 1.4 W. Its secondary output, at 1040 nm, offers 160-fs pulse widths at 1.5 W.
An internal and fully automated group velocity dispersion (GVD) pre-compensator enables the shortest possible pulse width at the sample.
Applications include optogenetics experiments, as well as stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) and coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS).
