Latest PLIM Research Using 250 MHz Rep Rate, 50 fs Pulse
A recent scientific paper published in the Journal of Innovative Optical Health Sciences by The Core Imaging Facility at the University of Ulm investigates the use of fast-repetition-rate, fs-pulsed lasers to advance phosphorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (PLIM). PLIM is traditionally performed with 80 MHz Ti:Sapphire lasers; however, this paper highlights the successful application of 250 MHz repetition rate lasers with 50 fs pulse duration. This difference offers reduced invasiveness and better comparability to standard CW light treatments. The measurements with the 250 MHz laser correlate well with measurements under excitation with conventional 80 MHz laser sources.
Laser Quantum is particularly excited to see the paper, as it is a result of the collaboration between the University of Ulm and Laser Quantum, using the helixx laser, a 250 MHz rep rate laser providing 50 s pulse rate and more than 2.3 W average power. The wavelength is also tunable between 720 nm and 920nm.
