Nanosecond Timestamping for Single-Photon-Counting Images

The Mantis3 is a single-photon-counting camera with nanosecond timestamping. The Mantis³ consists of a Timepix3-based visible light camera coupled to a Photonis CricketTM, which contains a high-end image intensifier. The TPX3Cam (produced by Amsterdam Scientific Instruments) is a high-rate, event-driven, timestamping camera. The attached CricketTM image intensifier enables single-photon sensitivity and offers a choice of … Continue reading

Watch Laser Quantum’s Two-Photon Microscopy Video

Achieving high resolution and increasing imaging speeds are two critical factors for effective two-photon microscopy. Laser Quantum’s newest animation demonstrates how the helixx laser, with a repetition rate of 250 MHz, is tailored to the decay times of typical fluorophores. This important feature reduces photobleaching and toxicity, while increasing imaging speed and cell view times. … Continue reading

Enhancing Two-Photon Microscopy

Two-photon microscopy has many advantages over conventional microscopy including: minimal photo-bleaching effect and sample damage, higher imaging depth of live cells, higher excitation efficiency, and simultaneous excitation of multiple fluorophores with the promotion of autofluorescence. Ultrashort (<10 fs) pulses enhance the two-photon microscopy technique. The peak power for a given average output is much higher … Continue reading
