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 pulse durations as short as 100 fs which make 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 2.5 W), means that the laser light can be split between more than one microscope setup.
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.
Machined from a single block of high-grade aluminium, the Chromacity 1040 has been designed specifically to deliver ultrashort pulses with outstanding reliability.
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.
The standard model operates at a pulse repetition frequency of 100 MHz, making it easy to integrate with a range of diagnostic equipment.
Due to the removal of the complexities of traditional ultrafast laser systems, while maintaining the high performance characteristics.
