FISH (Fluorescence In-Situ Hybridization) Presentation

Fluorescence In-Situ Hybridization (FISH) filter sets from Chroma Technology improve the most important image characteristics when viewing FISH samples so that you can score slides more easily, reduce uncertainty, reduce eye strain, save time, and increase throughput. This group of filters includes single band sets as well as several multi-band filter sets. These are useful … Continue reading

16 mm Image Intensifier Tubes Reduce System Weight and Size

Photonis is the only mass-producer of the 16-mm image intensifier tube. These tubes are 40% smaller and lighter than standard 18-mm tubes, allowing for a significant reduction in system weight and size. Benefits of the Image Intensifier Tube 4G include: Best Detection, Recognition and Identification (DRI) range Ultra-fast auto-gating Smallest halo Spectral range from 400 … Continue reading

Helping to Prove the Existence of Gravitational Waves

 Challenge Since 1916, the existence of gravitational waves has been predicted. However, even Albert Einstein never dreamed that such phenomenally small events could actually be observed and measured. Nearly a century later, in 2002, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) started looking for these distortions in the fabric of space-time. But nearly a decade of … Continue reading

A New Approach to Few-Cycle Pulse Compression

Attosecond science is enabled by nonlinear compression of intense laser pulses. Researchers from the University of Central Florida and Binghamton University suggest a new approach to few-cycle pulse compression. Using a PHAROS laser from Light Conversion, they demonstrated a record > 45× single-stage pulse compression and supercontinuum generation in XUV. To read the paper, entitled “Multioctave supercontinuum generation and frequency conversion … Continue reading
