Chromacity 1040

The HyperScope multiphoton imaging system now has advanced imaging capabilities; the introduction of an extended wavelength lens set means you can image deeper and through thin scattering layers in in vivo samples. Learn more here.

Chromacity 1040

The Chromacity 1040 responds to the need for affordable femtosecond laser sources within life sciences. The compact fixed wavelength source is ideal for integrating into multiphoton imaging systems, empowering users to develop clear and high-resolution images, as a result of an excellent beam quality, ultrafast pulses and high average powers.

Chromacity 1040
Faster results

The Chromacity 1040 femtosecond laser system doesn’t need time to warm up and doesn’t require alignment, allowing you to obtain results significantly sooner.

Ideal pulse duration

The Chromacity 1040 laser system delivers pulses <150fs, making it ideally suited to all types of two-photon imaging techniques.

High average power

The high average power that the Chromacity 1040 delivers (up to 4 W), means that the laser light can be split between more than one microscope setup.

Small footprint

With a compact footprint the size of a sheet of A4 paper, the Chromacity 1040 can replace traditional ultrafast systems and free up valuable space on a lab bench.

Exceptional reliability

Machined from a single block of high-grade aluminium, the Chromacity 1040 has been designed specifically to deliver ultrashort pulses with outstanding reliability.

Flexibilty

An intuitive web-based user-interface allows for easy control of the Chromacity 1040. This relaxes the constraints of having to be near the laser system to use it.

Excellent beam quality

The Chromacity 1040 delivers a beam quality that can be easily re-shaped and aligned into almost all microscope setups.

Easy integration

The standard model operates at a pulse repetition frequency of 100 MHz, making it easy to integrate with a range of diagnostic equipment.

Low cost

Due to the removal of the complexities of traditional ultrafast laser systems, while maintaining the high performance characteristics.

Applications

  • SHG and multiphoton microscopy
  • Light sheet microscopy
  • Optogenetics
  • Pump source for nonlinear optics (OPOs, 4-Wave mixing)
  • THz generation
  • Time resolved experiments (e.g. TCSPC/FLIM)

Testimonials

“The Chromacity 1040 is a fantastic turn-key system that takes up a surprisingly small footprint on the optical bench. Our amplified system comes with built-in pulse compression, making it an ideal source for nonlinear optics. After a decade of working with Ti:sapphire lasers, having such a reliable femtosecond laser in the lab is a delight”.
