Long-range imaging – 800 nm OCT goes ultra-deep 25 Aug

Wasatch Photonics

Achieve imaging depths of up to 12 mm in a single scan with our Cobra-S 800 nm OCT optical spectrometer. Offering comparable image resolution at a much more cost-effective operating wavelength, long-range imaging at 800 nm has the potential to open up new opportunities for the practical application of long-range imaging in ophthalmology, medicine, and nondestructive testing.

One laser, multi-color nanoscopy 02 Nov

Hubner Photonics

In this white paper we present a new technique that makes use of a single laser to excite multiple fluorophores in the same spectral range (red/far-red) coupled to a spectral demixing strategy that allows diffraction limits to be overcome thereby permitting 3D multi-color nanoscopy with increased simplicity, speed, and reliability of output data.
