Erbium-Doped Amplifier Fiber

The EDF-T9 from StockerYale (Salem, NH) is an erbium-doped amplifier fiber that uses the company’s proprietary doping method to enable homogeneous glass matrix and control aluminum content. The EDF-T9 can be customized to match the gain spectrum of any existing gain-flattening filter and any other standard EDF. The company also offers a line of short-wavelength fibers that can be used in RGB imaging systems and laser diode pigtails. For Free Info Visit http://info.ims.ca/10976-225

Picosecond Laser

High Q Laser Production (Hohenems, Austria) has introduced the mode locked picoTRAINTM Green IC-532-12000, a picosecond laser featuring integrated second harmonic generation (SHG) delivering 20W at a wavelength of 1064 nm and 12W at 532 nm in a 76 MHz pulse train with 6 ps pulses. The SHG is performed in a separate module via non-critical phase matching with a BBO crystal. The temperature control of the BBO crystal is achieved by a Peltier element controlled by the laser driver. The power distribution of 532 nm to 1064 nm radiation can be controlled continuously by a variable beam splitter. The TEM00 laser beam displays a beam quality of M2 < 1.2. Both the 532 nm and the 1064 nm pulse train are temporally synchronized. The picoTRAINTM Green is also available at different power levels of 4W, 6W, and 8W at 532nm. The system is suitable for pumping of optical parametric oscillators, ultrafast spectroscopy, multi-photo imaging, and nano-processing. For Free Info Visit http://info.ims.ca/10976-227

Science Grade Infrared Camera

FLIR Systems (Boston, MA) has introduced the ThermoVision® SC8000 MWIR infrared camera. Capable of generating over 1.0 million pixels for a single thermal image, the SC8000 produces full window 1024×1024 14-bit data at 132 frames per second (fps). By reducing the window size, the camera offers frame rates of 309 fps at 640×512, 751 fps at 320×256, and 909 fps at 160×120. The SC8000’s camera control interface enables the user to adjust the output frame rate of the camera from .0051Hz to full frame. The SC8000 also offers a high-performance 16-channel readout that provides digital data at 205 M pixels/second; multiple camera presets; and Gigabit Ethernet, Camera Link Full, and USB interfaces. Built-in IRIG-B timing provides on-board deterministic time stamping of each frame of data, as well as advanced IRIG-B options. For Free Info Visit http://info.ims.ca/10976-228

Filter Sets for CoralHueTM Keima-Red Fluorescent Protein

Omega Optical (Brattleboro, VT) has developed three new filter sets for use with CoralHueTM Keima-Red fluorescent protein. The new filter sets include versions with both longpass and band-pass emission filters to accommodate a variety of single and multi-fluor applications. Developed by researchers at RIKEN and Hokkaido University in Japan, Keima-Red has an extremely large Stokes shift, making it very useful for tracking protein-protein interactions and for multi-fluor use in fluorescence cross-correlation spectroscopy. These features make it possible for researchers to excite two labels with a single laser for simultaneous fluorescence, resulting in the ability to track protein localization in cells, as well as for monitoring gene expression. The spectral curves of Keima-Red and its optimized filter sets are available online in Omega’s Curvomatic, an interactive database containing fluorescent probes and filter spectral data.
