New Ultrafast Laser for Multiphoton Imaging

The unique performance of the new Chameleon Discovery NX laser delivers deep multiphoton microscope images with superb brightness and high contrast, making it especially well-suited for live tissue imaging in neuroscience and other intravital applications.

The Chameleon Discovery NX offers high power levels (up to 3W), and shortest pulses at the sample plane to enable complex two photon microscope configurations. Short pulse duration is key to high brightness/contrast images and is enabled by a group dispersion delay (GDD) pre-compensator with enhanced dynamic range. It avoids unwanted pulse stretching, even in wide field microscope setups using highly refractive objectives, allowing users to minimise unwanted sample heating and maximise image depth.

Chameleon Discovery NX is tunable from 660nm to 1320nm, while simultaneously producing a high-power fixed wavelength output at 1040nm. It is also available with Total Power Control (TPC), enabling built-in high-speed power modulation. Incorporating the latest acousto-optic (AO) technology, this functionality provides high-contrast modulation on both the tunable femotsecond output and the 1040nm output. TPC ensures that the laser's excellent beam quality is delivered directly to the microscope scan head.
