Becker & Hickl and Abberior Combination Records STED FLIM at Megapixel Resolution

microtubules sted intervalfit rr comp80

The combination of the Abberior Instruments STED system with the Becker & Hickl Simple-Tau 150/154 TCSPC FLIM system records FLIM data at a spatial resolution of better than 40 nm. The image format can be as large as 2048 x 2048 pixels, with 256 time channels per pixel. An image area of 40 x 40 micrometers can thus be covered with 20 nm pixel size, fully satisfying the Nyquist criterion. The system benefits from Windows 64 bit technology used both in the Abberior and in the bh data acquisition software, from the combined processing power of the two system computers, and the high data throughput of up to four parallel TCSPC FLIM channels. The system achieves peak count rates in excess of 5 MHz per FLIM channel, resulting in unprecedented signal-to-noise ratio and short acquisition time.

Lyncée Tec launches the 4D profilometry application challenge

PosterChallenge 270x270

Lyncée Tec SA, pioneer in Digital Holography Microscopy (DHM® ) launches its first 4D profilometry innovation challenge.

DHM® are optical systems measuring the sample topography over the full field of observation without any lateral or vertical scanning, just with a single camera frame acquisition. This unique technical feature enables to record time­sequences of successive 3D topography, giving access to the world of 4D profilometry.

DHM® can measure samples in air, immersed in liquid, under controlled atmosphere, under low or high pressure. 3D topography temporal changes can be induced by any mechanical, electrical, pressure, temperature, or any other environmental changes. It can also be the result of a natural sample physical evolution, such as evaporation or light exposition.

The goal of the challenge is to propose an innovative 4D profilometry application. Propositions should match DHM® specifications. The 10 best propositions will be nominated and, if possible, realized by Lyncée Tec. Participants will get access to results data. As a second step, an external international jury will choose 3 winners among the ten nominees. They will share USD 10’000 cash prize.

High Efficiency Vertical Light Emission measured with Nanonics MV4000


Nanonics congratulates Dr. Haiyang Huang, Dr. Hao Li and a team of scientists from the Shanghai Institute of Microsystem and Information Technology, CAS, on their recently published paper "High-Efficiency Vertical Light Emission through a Compact Silicon Nanoantenna Array” (ACS Photonics).

These researchers used a Nanonics MV4000 system to measure the emission light spot. Using a 200nm scanning aperture probe and reflection NSOM connecting with a TM polarized light beam, the authors scanned and mapped the Silicon Nanoantenna Array. Ther result was a subellipse shape, that was even more compact then anticipated.

piezosystem jena GmbH presents new CAN-Bus interface for digital piezo controllers/amplifiers

30DV50 klein 03 fd76c59083

The 30DV50 is one of the digital amplifiers that can be outfitted with the CAN-Bus interface  

  • data transfer via CAN-Bus reduces reaction time of piezo actuators to under one Millisecond – ten times faster
  • long reaction times are high cost factor, especially in au-tomation engineering – CAN-Bus can help reduce these costs

piezosystem jena GmbH, a worldwide developer and manufacturer of piezo actuators, stages and controllers for nanopositioning, is introducing a new CAN-Bus interface for its digital piezo controllers. The CAN-Bus allows for much faster reaction times of piezo actuators – below one Millisecond.

“Industry customers are constantly asking for faster and faster reaction times, especially when using piezo actuators in highly automated production processes”, says Dr. Bernt Götz, CEO of piezosystem jena, “With the CAN-Bus interface, we can now offer a solution that drastically increases the reaction times of our actuators.”

Ocean Optics FLAME-CHEM Spectrometers: Compact Spectrophotometers for Educators and Lab Pros

FLAME DA CUV VIS NIR with Flame 480x480

Ocean Optics FLAME-CHEM spectrometers are fully integrated UV-Vis and Vis-NIR systems for measuring absorbance and transmission of liquid samples in cuvettes. FLAME-CHEM is a great option for teaching labs and research facilities where users seek the performance and flexibility advantages of the Flame spectrometer in a compact, small footprint instrument.

Each FLAME-CHEM system comprises a preconfigured Flame spectrometer, a direct-attach light source and a cuvette holder for 1 cm pathlength cuvettes – all in a single package. UV-Vis (200-850 nm) and Vis-NIR (350-1000 nm) models are available. Add OceanView spectroscopy software (purchased separately) to complete your system. FLAME-CHEM systems are flexible: the light source-cuvette holder can be removed; spectrometer entrance slits can be switched out; and discrete sampling devices used in place of the direct-attach accessories.
