Ce:YAG Optical Head

YAGH

A Ce:YAG Fiber Light Source system includes an optical head and an electronic driver linked by an HDB15 cable. Optical heads of Ce:YAG Fiber Light Sources are optimized for optical fibers core diameters of 200 µm to 400 µm and numerical aperture NA = 0.53. The fiber-coupled output power increases with the core diameter up to about 600 µm.

A Ce:YAG Fiber Light Source system includes an optical head and an electronic driver linked by an HDB15 cable. Optical heads of Ce:YAG Fiber Light Sources are optimized for optical fibers core diameters of 200 µm to 400 µm and numerical aperture NA = 0.53. The fiber-coupled output power increases with the core diameter up to about 600 µm.

The optical output is thus well optimized for unilateral and bilateral activation/silencing in optogenetics experiments and for Doric Optogenetically Synchronized Fluorescence Microscopy Systems. A Ce:YAG optical head is also included with each 2-color Fluorescence Microscope System (using a different driver).


Notes:
• A Ce:YAG + LED Optical Head does not include the corresponding Ce:YAG + LED Driver. 
• Each Ce:YAG Optical Head is delivered with an empty Filter Holder for Ce:YAG Fiber Light Source (YFH). Different Bandpass filters for Ce:YAG Fiber Light Sources (YBPF) are available.

    Drivers are offered in 3 models and all models include a first channel for controlling the Ce:YAG source driving current. For Ce:YAG Optical Heads including an internal blue source, either an LED or a laser diode (LD), the corresponding drivers include a second channel for the blue source.

    Each Ce:YAG Optical Head is delivered with an empty Filter Holder for Ce:YAG Fiber Light Source (YFH). This holder can accept up to 5 mm thick filters of 25 or 25.4 mm diameter. Doric standard Bandpass filters are sold already mounted in a filter holder (YBPF).
