Spectra-Physics Pioneers New Ultrafast Laser for Deep Tissue Imaging - InSight DeepSee

InSight™ DeepSee™ delivers revolutionary performance in a turn-key system

Spectra-Physics®, a Newport Corporation brand, introduces InSight DeepSee, an extraordinary new ultrafast laser system that takes multiphoton imaging to new depths. Based on a novel proprietary technology, the new InSight DeepSee delivers nearly double the tuning range of existing ultrafast lasers and provides seamless access to long infrared wavelengths for deepest in vivo imaging. Robust and fully automated, InSight DeepSee provides easy-to-use, hands-off operation, freeing users to focus on their critical research.

“InSight DeepSee incorporates our most advanced technology in a turn-key system with revolutionary performance,” said Dave Allen, general manager and vice president for Spectra-Physics. “This extraordinary laser redefines multiphoton imaging by enabling users to readily image at dramatically greater depths.”

InSight DeepSee features an unprecedented 680 to 1300nm continuous tuning from a single source, short 100fs pulse widths and highest peak power levels into the infrared where imaging penetration depth is maximized. Spectra-Physics’ integrated, patent-pending DeepSee, the industry-standard dispersion pre-compensator, delivers the short pulses through a microscope to the sample for maximum fluorescence. A dual wavelength option is available for advanced imaging techniques, including uncaging, coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) imaging, and multi-modal imaging.

This fully-automated ultrafast laser can be seamlessly tuned, with the click of a mouse, to any wavelength within seconds. The laser system also has ideal beam characteristics optimized for multiphoton imaging. InSight DeepSee is designed, built and tested to stringent quality standards for hands-free, reliable operation.

Newport Corporation is a leading global supplier of advanced-technology products and systems to customers in the scientific research, microelectronics manufacturing, aerospace and defense/security, life and health sciences and precision industrial manufacturing markets. Newport’s innovative solutions leverage its expertise in high-power semiconductor, solid-state and ultrafast lasers, photonics instrumentation, sub-micron positioning systems, vibration isolation, optical subsystems and precision automation to enhance the capabilities and productivity of its customers’ manufacturing, engineering and research applications.
