Simultaneous Illumination of Multiple Regions
Andor's Mosaic illuminator uses Digital Mirror Device technology to provide simultaneous illumination of multiple regions of arbitrary shape.
Mosaic's unique capability to illuminate in parallel an arbitrary number of complex regions sets it apart from galvo-based devices. High speed frame switching (5kHz) makes Mosaic suitable for many dynamic applications including bleaching, uncaging, photoswitching, optogenetics and constrained illumination. Variable intensity distributions can be achieved by rapid gating of mirror patterns.
Mosaic uses dichroic coupling to the microscope light path and is therefore capable of simultaneous stimulation and imaging. It is offered with a range of high performance microscope adapter optics and can be integrated with CLSM, spinning disk and wide field imaging modalities. Download the datasheet.
