Picosecond Pulsed Diode Lasers at 450 nm and 635 nm

PicoQuant GmbH has again extended the already large number of available wavelengths

PicoQuant GmbH has again extended the already large number of available wavelengths of picosecond pulsed diode lasers by the release of a new laser head at 450 nm and a very much improved laser head at 635 nm. Both laser heads can be controlled by the established laser drivers of the PDL Series.

Picosecond Pulsed Diode Laser Head at 531 nm

New laser is based on a master-oscillator fibre-amplifier (MOFA) concept with frequency conversion

PicoQuant GmbH announces the release of the long-awaited 531 nm (“green”) picosecond pulsed diode laser head. The new green diode laser (“LDH-P-FA-530”) is based on a master-oscillator fibre-amplifier (MOFA) concept with frequency conversion.

New TCSPC System Software Version 2.3 for PicoHarp 300

New version includes a real-time correlator for Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy

A new data acquisition software is now available for the PicoHarp 300 Time-Correlated Single Photon Counting system from PicoQuant. The new version 2.3 provides a new real-time correlator for Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy that calculates two autocorrelations and the cross correlation between two photon streams simultaneously, making best use of current multiprocessor systems.

Young Investigator Award at Single Molecule Session during SPIE/ Photonics West

A specially dedicated award worth 750 USD was sponsored by PicoQuant

Between January 24 and January 30, 2009, SPIE organized a special symposium about „Biomedical Spectroscopy, Microscopy, and Imaging“ as part of North America's Largest Photonics Event („Photonics West“). The „Single Molecule Spectroscopy and Imaging“ conference was surely one of the highlights of this symposium, and about 150 scientists enjoyed more than 40 presentations.

Linux Programming Library for TCSPC System HydraHarp 400

The Time-Correlated Single Photon Counting system from PicoQuant can be used under the GNU Linux operating system

A programmer's library is now available supporting the HydraHarp 400 Time-Correlated Single Photon Counting system from PicoQuant under the GNU Linux operating system. The library is fully API compatible with the corresponding library for Windows. It comes as a shared library supporting all features of the HydraHarp 400, including the instrument's Time-Tagged Time-Resolved (TTTR) mode, were all photons or other events are captured as precisely timed individual records.
