Femto2D-Resonant microscope is the most appropriate choice for imaging of the entire field of view with high frame rates. In this microscope Femtonics combines the high speed and high sensitivity imaging of living tissues. Resonant scanner based raster scanning is ~5-fold faster for fast acquisition of the entire field-of-view compared to galvanometric based scanning.
The resonant scanner consists of a fast oscillating mirror for x-axis deflection and a galvanometer mirror for y-axis sweep. Thanks to the 8 kHz oscillating speed of the fast mirror, the microscope is capable of gathering images at 31 frames per second.
High sensitivity photon detection allows superior signal-to-noise ratio based on the following achievements:
- the shortest possible optical path allows enhanced photon collection efficiency thanks to our patented travelling detector system,
- using the highest sensitivity GaAsP photomultipliers (quantum efficiency >40%), which are optimized for scattered photons,
- carefully chosen high quality filtersets.
The modular nature of the microscope supports to extend it with many upgrade elements ensuring a future proof performance in all kinds of optical-physiology measurements (uncaging, optogenetics, parallel electrophysiology, etc.). Tell us the concept, we create it.
