Ce:YAG + LED Optical Head


This Ce:YAG optical head is coupled with a 465 nm LED.

More details

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).
