Understanding Spinning Disk Confocal Microscopy
By Louis Keal and Dan Croucher, Photometrics

Conventional fluorescence microscopy, used for biological imaging, does not construct 3D images needed for 3D specimens, and it is not able to gaze past cell features. Confocal microscopy uses optical sectioning to obtain multiple, thin, two-dimensional slices of a sample to construct 3D models.

Piezo-Based Miniaturized Fast Steering Mirror Platforms (FSM) For Laser Beam Control: S-335

PI's new S-255 piezo fast steering mirror (FSM) offers millisecond response settling time, high dynamic linearity for precision image processing, and image stabilization, laser beam steering, materials processing, and lithography. These FSM's are based on parallel-kinematic designs with coplanar rotational axes and a single moving platform, driven by two pairs of differential actuators that enable jitter-free, multi-axis motion with excellent temperature stability.

Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging — Application Simplified

The pco.flim camera system is the first luminescence lifetime imaging camera designed to use a two-tap CMOS image sensor. This white paper discusses the pco.flim camera and how it simplifies the process of fluorescence lifetime imaging.

Understanding Edge Filters For Raman Spectroscopy

Since the excitation source laser intensity is often six to eight orders of magnitude greater than the Raman scattered signal, edge pass filters are required to block the wavelength of the scattered laser beam while transmitting the wavelength shifted Raman scattered signal.
