In vivo NIR-II Small Animal Imaging with C-RED 2 14 Sep 2020

In vivo NIR-II Small Animal Imaging with C-RED 2 – high-speed and sensitive imaging of ICG in vivo distribution in a nude mouse

Two-photon fluorescence microscopy - imaging of invitrogen fluocells, kidney, liver and collagen. 10 Sep 2020

The Chromacity 1040 provides the perfect balance of peak-power, pulse duration and average power for generating images of biological samples through a two-photon non-linear process.

What’s in a GRISM? Uses & Advantages 26 Aug 2020

Combining a GRating and prISM allows light to be dispersed while canceling out beam deviation to enable in-line optical layouts ideal for compact spectral imaging. But the advantages don’t stop there. In this tech note, we’ll share 5 tips & tricks we’ve learned about grisms to get the most out of your next optical design.

Understanding High Performance SWIR Imaging Cameras – Seeing beyond the visible! 24 Jul 2020

This white paper discusses the performance of InGaAs detector arrays with sensitivities in the Vis-SWIR region, discussing readout noise and dark current reduction.

Extended SWIR (eSWIR) High Performance and High Definition Colloidal Quantum Dot Imagers 24 Jul 2020

CQD sensors exhibit sensitivity superior to traditional IR sensors employed in the 1600-2000nm band, enabling the first commercially available room temperature 2.1MP camera with sensitivity to 2.0 micron.

Unlocking the Unknowns of Industrial Sensing 25 Jun 2020
