Coherent Chameleon Vision Modelocked Ti:S Laser

Widely tunable, single box precompensation, hands free, modelocked Ti:S laser


Imagine an optical design innovation that enables better images by allowing you to optimize negative dispersion, power or tuning range without compromising stability or beam quality. The new Chameleon Vision gives you all of the above.

After years of experience with multi photon microscopy laser sources, in 2002 Coherent introduced the Chameleon - the first laser specifically designed for MPE - and we continue to improve its capabilities year after year. The Chameleon Vision embodies Coherent innovation and technical leadership, and demonstrates our continuing commitment to expand the frontiers of your non-linear imaging research. With the introduction of integrated precompensation into our Chameleon family of lasers you are provided all the sources you need to produce the best images with the widest range of fluorophores, microscopes and samples.

The Chameleon Vision-S now adds high peak power capability to the already established superior Vision dispersion compensation technology.

The Chameleon Vision family consists of the Chameleon Vision, offering widest tuning and highest average power and now theChameleon Vision-S, offering high peak power for those applications that require it.


Highest Output Power:
With more than 3.0 Watts, the Chameleon Vision offers the highest output power available from a laser with integrated precompensation.

High Peak Power:
Chameleon Vision-S delivers enhanced peak power.

Highest Maximum Negative Dispersion:
Ultra wide dispersion compensation range from 0 to 45,000fs2

Superior Beam Pointing:
Chameleon Vision users PermAlign technology (solder bonded optics) to mount all critical optical components. In combination with the unique prism design this provides unmatched beam pointing stability, which delivers consistent images, scan after scan, sample after sample.

Ultrawide Tuning Range:
The widest tuning range of any integrated precompensation laser product providing the greatest flexibility in choice of fluorophores.

Fastest Tuning: At 40nm/s Chameleon has the fastest tuning speed on the market. A faster tuning range means that you can take images with different excitation wavelengths at a faster pace.

Lowest Noise:
The built-in single mode Verdi pump laser is the key to Chameleon's reliability and low nosie performance. Low noise from the excitation source means less variation in the excitation of each image pixel.
