PicoQuant goes beyond the diffraction limit with STED

A new upgrade enables the time-resolved confocal microscope MicroTime 200 for STED super-resolution microscopy

PicoQuant GmbH, specialist in the field of single photon counting applications, will release a super-resolution upgrade to its confocal microscopy system MicroTime 200. The STED (stimulated emission depletion) upgrade will be presented to the public for the first time during a product demonstration at PicoQuant's 20th International Workshop on “Single Molecule Spectroscopy and Ultra Sensitive Analysis in the Life Sciences”. The workshop takes place on September 2-5, 2014 in Berlin, Germany.

Integrating sphere add-on for FluoTime 300

Precise quantum yield measurements can be routinely performed in a few minutes even by untrained users

PicoQuant has released an integrating sphere add-on for the FluoTime 300 spectrometer. It has been thoroughly designed and calibrated and is able to reproduce published literature data of selected quantum yield standards such as Rhodamin 6G, Coumarin 153, and Ru(bpy)3.The complete workflow for quantum yield measurements is included in the EasyTau software as a dedicated quantum yield wizard. Therefore, precise quantum yield measurements can be routinely performed in a few minutes even for untrained users.

PicoQuant will showcase the new picosecond pulsed supercontinuum Solea at Photonics West 2014

The spectrum of the tunable laser source spans from 480 nm to 700 nm

PicoQuant GmbH will present the new supercontinuum laser Solea at Photonics West 2014, held February 1-6 in San Franscico, CA, USA. The tunable picosecond laser source gives users unprecedented capabilities such as full wavelength tunability and free triggering. It can be operated at a number of user-selectable internal repetition rates or even be externally triggered at any repetition rate between 1 MHz and 40 MHz. Any single wavelength between 480 nm and 700 nm can be selected.
