NEW - Dual Output Laser for MPE

The new Chameleon Discovery dual-wavelength laser from Coherent combines the industry’s widest tuning range, highest power and shortest pulsewidth to enable cutting edge fluorescence detection techniques in non-linear microscopy. The primary output of this new laser, the Chameleon Discovery, is continuously tunable from 680nm – 1300nm, with short pulsewidth (100fs) and power up to 1.4 Watts, while simultaneously providing 1.5 Watts of output at 1040nm. Moreover, an internal and fully automated Group Velocity Dispersion (GVD) pre-compensator enables the shortest possible pulsewidth at the sample. Read more online or download the datasheet.
