Advantages of sub 50 femtosecond pulses in multiphoton microscopy 09 Mar

HÜBNER Photonics

One of the main advantages of using ultrafast femtosecond fiber lasers is the high peak power that they offer, which is a result of their ultra-short pulse duration. This high peak power makes these lasers ideal for a wide range of applications, including multiphoton microscopy. In this white paper we show that sub 50 fs pulse durations provide unprecedented multiphoton conversion efficiencies with intense peak powers.

Unlike emCCD or sCMOS intensified cameras allow for photon detection down to 4ns. Photon Lines’ partner, Excelitas PCO explains this exciting part of their range 16 May

Photon Lines / PCO

pco.dicam – a family of nine MCP image intensified camera systems offering extremely short exposure/shutter times. The choice of the photocathodes allows selection of spectral behaviour for different applications. Download the white paper here.

Controlling CoaXPress Cameras from The BitFlow SDK Tools, Configuration File and APIs 24 May


The BitFlow SDK offers a number of different methods for programming CoaXPress cameras connected to BitFlow frame grabbers. The purpose of the this document is to explain how each method's components work together to provide camera control. There are a wide range of use-cases for this technology, so this document steps the reader through all the various workflows. Download the whitepaper here.
