TOPTICA为多种生物光子学应用提供激光解决方案

现如今大量关于蛋白质,细胞或器官整体功能的知识都是通过光学技术获得的。光进入细胞,探测细胞并提供有价值的信息。除此之外,现代光学技术结合了高空间分辨率,非破坏性采样,深度穿透甚至三维成像等强大特性,并可以提供原位或体内检查以及实时监控的可能性。

从显微镜到流式细胞仪,医疗检测和制药仪器,激光在光学仪器中发挥着重要作用。生命科学和医疗应用中光学技术的稳步发展与现代光子源不断增长的需求密切相关——每个光源都经过优化,以求完美实现其特定任务。

TOPTICA Photonics很自豪能成为要求严格的生物光电应用行业世界领跑者之一。我们的产品组合涵盖了从具有直接调制功能的高端UV和VIS激光源到宽调谐范围的光纤激光器以及针对对时间分辨率要求较高应用的超快脉冲源。 TOPTICA作为生物光子学领域的客户的一站式合作伙伴提供高度专业,灵活可靠的服务。

TOPTICA supports PIX4life project to miniaturize lasers for life sciences

Miniaturized PIC multi-color laser engines for the life sciences

In February 2016 the European commission approved funding for the new project PIX4life as part of the EU’s “Photonics21” program . TOPTICA is proud to support this unique program which pledges [...] pledges € 8.5 million to a consortium of several partners from academia and industry.

The European PIX4life pilot line aims to offer an open-access manufacturing platform for photonic integrated circuits, specifically targeting life-science applications at visible wavelength ranges (400-850 nm). Chip fabrication will be done either through dedicated wafer runs, or most often by multi-project wafer (MPW) runs, where many users will be able to share wafer space, and thus the fabrication cost. PIX4life will also offer all kinds of additional services like photonic integration consultancy, circuit design, chip testing and packaging.

The first early-access MPW run by LioniX is scheduled for this summer over their TriPleX platform, and the next run by IMEC will be scheduled for this winter over their BioPIX platform.

Time-resolved microscopy and spectroscopy using asynchronously synchronized fiber lasers (2018)

Application Note 2018

Synchronized modular laser systems support time-resolved measurements, as well as complex pump-probe methods like ASOPS. The presented laser system is used to measure Kerr-rotations by inducing a precession motion of the spin magnetization in ferromagnetic materials, which in turn leads to emission of microwave radiation that rotates the polarization of temporally delayed probe pulses. This way, the temporal evolution of the spin precession motion is detected.
