Phaseview Smartscan: Ultrafast 3D Imaging

Phaseview Smartscan

Phaseview  SmartScan provides ultra fast Z-stacking capabilities for microscopy applications by remotely scanning image planes.

Z-scanning is achieved without moving sample stage or objective thus allowing vibration free and fast acquisition time only limited by camera performance.

As aberration free and diffraction limited optical devices, SmartScan optical Z-scanner provides precise and repeatable Z-steps.

SmartScan fits in between microscope turret and objective. SmartScan is compatible with all kind of microscopes: upright / inverted, BF, FL, SPIM, 2Photons, etc. and require no microscope modification or additional accessories. All types of objectives magnification / NA can be used,including high numerical aperture diiping lenses.

Ocean Optics: Analyzing Lavender Oil from Flower to Fluid

Lavender with lavender oil 624x414

by Carly Burleson, Applications Engineer, and Joseph Bonvallet, Applications Engineer, Ocean Optics

The focus of this application note is the detection of adulteration in lavender essential oil using an attenuated total reflection infrared spectrometer, the Ocean Optics Ocean MZ5. Lavender oil is one of the best-selling oils and most adulterated [2]. The Ocean MZ5 focuses on a portion (1818-909 cm-1) of the fingerprint region (~1500-500 cm-1), which gives a unique spectrum for each compound [3]. Combining this region with the use of chemometrics, a powerful tool utilizing multivariate statistical analyses and data transformations, provides even greater analysis capabilities. It was determined that the limit of detection (LOD) of lavender in sweet almond oil is 6.74% and the LOD of sweet almond oil in lavender is 7.66%.

New Application Note from Toptica: Time-resolved microscopy & spectroscopy using ASOPS

ASOPS

A new application note from Toptica describes how complex time-resolved measurements can be performed using ASOPS (asynchronous optical sampling). It gives detailed insight how a system consisting of four synchronized FemtoFiber lasers was used to realize a sophisticated pump-probe setup for time-resolved microscopy and spectroscopy.

Abberior Instruments STEDYCON: Now with DynamicPLUS Imaging

stedycon titelbild new.1280x448

Abberior Instruments is known for extraordinary customization ability of its flexible STED microscope platform. We have developed the ultimate compact STED and confocal microscope, called STEDYCON.

STEDYCON is a completely new class of nanoscope. It converts your conventional epifluorescence microscope into a versatile four-color confocal (405nm, 488nm, 561nm, 640nm) and STED (775nm) system! At the same time, it is incredibly compact and can be used by anyone!

DynamicPLUS: Superior sensitivity and full dynamic range within the same image

Our new DynamicPLUS feature offers unrivaled performance with both STED and classical confocal applications. With DynamicPLUS, you can be sure to capture everything from the faintest details to the brightest spots.

The underlying avalanche photo detectors (APDs) have a superior quantum efficiency, up to a factor of two above even hybrid detectors. This means that even when signal-levels are low, our APDs still collect plenty of photons for a meaningful image. Typical applications are super-resolution STED imaging and experiments with low labeling densities designed to stay close to physiological conditions.

At the same time, the dead-time compensation of DynamicPLUS allows crisp images of high-signal samples, such as bright confocal images. Of course, raw data for quantitative analysis and deconvolution is always available.

SIOS Messtechnik GmbH: Calibration Laser Interferometer

SP15000C5 2015 300x200

Calibration laser interferometer SP 15000 C5 with reflector unit and straightness mirror

  • Synchronous, continuous
    5 DOF-measurement of length, pitch and yaw angle as well as straightness
  • Horizontal and vertical components of axis straightness are measured by a rotatable optics.
  • Calibration software according to currently applicable standards
  • Easy handling and adjustment by integrated beam direction detection
  • Beam deflection with an optional adjustable deflection mirror

The SIOS Messtechnik system SP 15000C5 is a multiple beam interferometer which can measure the length, two angles and the straightness simultaneously. Due to the large length measurement range the device is suitable for calibrating from small to very large machine tools and coordinate measurement machines.
