LyncéeTec Live 3D Profilometer

The LyncéeTec Live 3D Profilometer solution by DHM® provides a unique approach for 3D topography characterization. Additionally to measurement of static samples, Digital Holographic Microscopy’s (DHM) “live” acquisition enables 3D measurements on moving and deformable samples.

Key features:

High temporal resolution

  • 3D topography acquisition rate up to 1000 frames per second
  • Data acquisition time typically 100 microseconds, optional 10 microseconds


PicoQuant goes beyond the diffraction limit with STED

PicoQuant MicroTime 200

A new upgrade enables the time-resolved confocal microscope MicroTime 200 for STED super-resolution microscopy

PicoQuant GmbH, specialist in the field of single photon counting applications, will release a super-resolution upgrade to its confocal microscopy system MicroTime 200. The STED (stimulated emission depletion) upgrade will be presented to the public for the first time during a product demonstration at PicoQuant's 20th International Workshop on “Single Molecule Spectroscopy and Ultra Sensitive Analysis in the Life Sciences”. The workshop takes place on September 2-5, 2014 in Berlin, Germany.

The MicroTime 200 is a powerful and versatile FLIM and FCS platform that enables the user to perform a wide range of measurements down to the single molecule level. In addition to the excellent timing resolution of the MicroTime 200, the new STED upgrade will offer spatial resolution several times lower than the diffraction limit. Apart from imaging, where the increased resolution allows the distinction of smaller structures, STED can be used in spectroscopy, which promises more accurate and versatile 2D FCS measurements.


Laser Quantum torus laser shows excellent spectral purity

Laser Quantum torus

The spectral purity of the Laser Quantum torus 532 laser is shown to be 110 dB when measured with a Tandem Fabry-Perot interferometer, resulting in high resolution Brillouin scattering measurements in bulk materials. Read more in the Whitepaper.

PicoQuant introduce new sample chamber design and software for FluoTime 300

PicoQuant FluoTime 300 new sample chamber

PicoQuant has released two new updates for their FluoTime 300 fluorescence lifetime spectrometer: a redesigned sample chamber and a new version of their EasyTau software.

The sample chamber of the system is now designed around modular sample holders, which allow a quick and easy change between different sample configurations, e. g. liquids, powders, or wafers. The range of available sample holders was also extended and now includes a front face sample holder for samples of up to 2 inch size. The holder permits to change position and angle of the sample with respect to the direction of excitation and detection from outside of the sample compartment. This special feature is extremely useful for an on-line optimization of the beam position on the sample while the measurement is running.


New picosecond pulsed diode laser at 560 nm from PicoQuant

PicoQuant yellow laser

The yellow laser opens the door for new applications in Life and Material Sciences

PicoQuant GmbH announces the release of the long-awaited 560 nm picosecond pulsed diode laser head. The availability of this new wavelength opens the door for entirely new applications in bioanalytics, biochemistry, genetics, semiconductor characterisation, and quality control.

The 560 nm laser is ideal for exciting fluorescent proteins like mCherry, RFP, or DsRed, and fluorescent dyes such as CY3 or Atto565. With a pulse duration as short as 80 ps, the pulsed laser head perfectly matches the time resolution of mainstream detectors, yet at a price much lower than that of commonly used solid state lasers. The laser head supports picosecond pulsed as well as continuous-wave operation.


With the new XploRA Nano, TERS mapping is made easy

Horiba Scientific TERS

World premiere : Nano-Raman (TERS) mapping live on an exhibition booth!

May 2014, EMRS conference Lille, France

Nano-Raman performed with tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS), and especially nano-Raman imaging, still has the reputation of being a difficult measurement. Last week, to demonstrate that this can now be performed under regular conditions, the HORIBA team has set up a Raman-AFM system “the XploRA Nano” on a standard optical table running without air damping.

TERS imaging was performed without any trouble even when visitors were stopping by to discuss the technique with the team.

New from Toptica: 100 nm of mode-hop free tuning!

Toptica announce 100nm of mode-hop free tuning

TOPTICA introduces a new family of continuously tunable diode lasers

TOPTICA introduces a new family of diode lasers: the Continuously Tunable Lasers, CTL, for applications requiring a large mode-hop free tuning range with the best spectroscopic quality. The new family of CTL diode lasers permits mode-hop free tuning across the full gain spectrum of the integrated laser diode – while providing the highest resolution, narrow linewidth (< 100 kHz), renowned stability and ease-of-use of TOPTICA lasers. The first two versions of the CTL are available at 950 nm and 1570 nm, with continuous tuning from 915 – 985 nm and 1530 – 1620 nm, respectively. The single-mode TEM00 lasers provide an absolute wavelength accuracy of better than 100 pm, a repeatability better than 10 pm and output powers of up to 80 mW, more than twice the output power of comparable lasers.
