The Chromacity Spark FIR is the first commercial quasi-CW OPO providing output in the 5-12 µm range. It is an ideal source for infrared spectroscopy and stand-off detection.
The Chromacity Spark 1040 ultrafast laser system delivers up to 2.5 W of light with pulse durations as short as 150 fs
The Chromacity Spark OPO provides exceptional tunability and high average power across the near-infrared (1.4-4.2 µm), making it an ideal light source for a wide range of application areas from multi-photon microscopy to spectroscopy.
This application note demonstrates how to generate a near-infrared continuum when combining the Spark 1040 with standard non-linear fibre.
This application note describes how the Spark 1040 can be used to pump an OPO capable of tuning from 1.4 – 4µm.
The Spark 1040 is an ideal laser for multi-photon microscopy as demonstrated in this application note where two-photon microscopy of a wide range of samples and labels is performed.
Second harmonic generation (SHG) microscopy is a powerful imaging tool. Here, we demonstrate how the Spark 1040 can be used to image both collagen and starch samples.
In the is application note the Spark 1040 is used in a light sheet microscope setup to visualise zebrafish embryo.
