The largest manufacturer of femtosecond optical parametric amplifiers (OPAs) and non-collinear OPAs, LIGHT CONVERSION launched the CRONUS-3P. It is an OPA-based laser source that was developed specifically for non-linear microscopy. It provides μJ-level sub-85 femtosecond pulses at repetition rates of up to 2 MHz and tunable from 1.25 to 1.8 μm, thus covering the biological transparency windows at 1.3 μm and 1.7 μm for 3PEF microscopy.
CRONUS-3P has integrated group delay dispersion (GDD) compensation, ensuring optimal pulse duration at the sample, and optional automated beam steering to guarantee laser pointing stability.
