Coherent Chameleon Compact OPO Family

Hands free, automated wavelength extension options using OPO technology


The Chameleon Compact OPO Family are hands free, automated wavelength extension options using optical parametric oscillator technology. They are purpose designed to be pumped with the Chameleon Ultra and Vision series Ti:Sapphire lasers.


Chameleon MPX

The new Chameleon MPX extends the wavelength range of Chameleon Vision and Ultra Ti:Sapphire lasers and is specifically designed and optimised for non-linear imaging techniques. Featuring a wide pump tuning range, the Chameleon MPX offers independently tunable dual beam excitation of popular fluorescent probes (e.g. eGFP, mCherry), with enabling powerful and truly flexible multimodal imaging.


Chameleon Compact OPO Dual tunability performance offering wavelength extension to 1600nm, with idler option to extend to 4000nm using the latest fan-poled opo crystal technology.

Chameleon Compact OPO-Vis The ultimate in widely tunable femtosecond lasers. The OPO-Vis add frequency doubling to both the Pump laser and OPO to give continuous tuning from 340nm to 1600nm. Wavelengths can be selected by the click of a button giving users the ability to spend more time on their science, and less time optimising their laser.
