KEYENCE CORPORATION OF AMERICA (888) 539-3623 EXT 80219 MICROSCOPES@KEYENCE.COM HTTP://WWW1.KEYENCE.COM/PRVHX7 OPTICAL PARAMETRIC AMPLIFIER Spectra-Physics ®, a Newport Corporation brand, introduces Spirit™-OPA, an automated optical parametric amplifier (OPA) specifically optimized for use with Spectra-Physics’ Spirit high-repetition-rate ultrafast laser. Spirit and Spirit-OPA together create a versatile and high energy, ultrafast laser system that tunes virtually gap-free from the mid-infrared (mid-IR) to the deep ultraviolet (DUV) with user-adjustable repetition rates from tens of kHz up to 1 Mhz. The user-friendly system is ideal for high repetition rate, time-resolved spectroscopy applications such as single molecule studies, nonlinear optics and fluorescence lifetime measurements. Spirit-OPA can be pumped with the Spirit 1040-4 and the recently introduced Spirit 1040-8 laser. Spectra-Physics’ Spirit is a high-repetition-rate industrial-grade femtosecond laser. NEWPORT SPECTRA-PHYSICS WWW.NEWPORT.COM/SPIRIT-OPA CAMERA Leica Microsystems has launched two cameras for routine brightfield or fluorescence applications. Both cameras are equipped with sensors dedicated to the respective applications that allow live images of up to 30 frames per second and a USB 3.0 interface for fast data transfer. The Leica Application Suite (LAS) and the fluorescence counterpart LAS Advanced Fluorescence (LAS AF) software platform provide for image acquisition and support users in analysis and documentation. The Leica DFC3000 G is a grayscale USB 3.0 microscope camera for routine fluorescence applications. It features a passive cooling architecture and correlated pixel double sampling and will therefore provide for clear fluorescence signals and low background noise. With its highly sensitive CCD sensor, it is particularly suitable for low light situations such as fluorescence.Providing live images of up to 30 frames per second, microscope users may inspect samples rapidly and protect their specimen from photo damage which will occur whenever samples are exposed to light too long. Data are transferred fast via USB 3.0.
