ALCOR 920: The Laser Solution for Ultimate Brightness in Microscopy!
The ALCOR 920 femtosecond laser series is specifically designed for biophotonics applications such as multiphoton microscopy. The 1W and 2W configurations have recently undergone a revamp of their key specifications with a new generation of ALCOR 920, providing the best performance available on the market for multiphoton microscopy at the same competitive price! The ALCOR 920-1 & 920-2 now offers unmatched laser parameters to achieve ultimate imaging performance thanks to HPC® Technology (High Pulse Contrast). HPC® increases average power while cleaning pulses!
ALCOR 920 enables optimal brightness in your microscopy thanks to:
- • Increased average power: 2.5W for ALCOR 920-2 and 1.5W for ALCOR 920-1
- • Short <100 fs pulses
- • Clean pulses enabled by HPC® Technology (High Pulse Contrast)
- • Highest peak power on the market, leading to optimal brightness!
With up to 50nJ of pulse energy (4W @ 80MHz) and >333 kW of peak power, which enables higher brilliance and contrast in two-photon imaging of red fluorophores (RFP) and calcium indicators such as RCaMP, dtTomato and MCherry. In addition, this series can be equipped with the XSight (AOM) module for precise and fast power control, as well as the FLeX Fiber fiber-coupled output module.
The fiber-based design enables a more compact, robust, and reliable laser than its DPSS and Ti:Sapphire counterparts. Through this simplified fiber design, these fiber lasers require little to no maintenance. Historically, researchers have been using Ti: Sapphire lasers, which utilize many more components and moving parts, including water cooling systems, requiring significantly more maintenance and ultimately leading to higher total cost of ownership. The combination of ultra short pulse duration, high repetition rates and high average powers offers many benefits to researchers and OEM microscopy instrumentation manufacturers in the lifesciences and biophotonics fields. In addition, the fiber-based design ensures reliable and robust 24/7 operation, while the ultra-compact, air-cooled user-friendly package eases integration and reduces facility requirements.
The ALCOR series of single wavelength 520 nm, 720 nm, 920 nm, 1040 nm, and 1064nm lasers are ideal for those working on multi-photon imaging applications. The combination of high energy (up to 62nJ) and short pulse width (as low as <100 fs) results in the highest peak power available on the market today. These features allow the researcher to image deeper into specimens, and with the revamped ALCOR 920-1 & 920-2, providing the shortest, clean pulses, at the highest powers, you truly get the best performance on the market for Multiphoton Microscopy! The additional options available: GDD pre-comp. down to -90,000 fs^2, XSight (AOM) module for fast power control, and fiber-coupled output make the ALCOR suitable for all two-photon microscopy setups.
The fiber based design of this series enables a more compact, robust, and reliable laser than its DPSS counterparts while still being air-cooled. Through this simplified fiber design, the ALCOR requires little to no maintenance. Historically, researchers have been using Ti: Sapphire lasers which utilize many more components and moving parts which requires significantly more maintenance ultimately leading to higher total cost of ownership. In the ALCOR, the only consumables are the laser diodes, which are rated for +20,000 hours.
