Fast Tunable Light Source based on AOTF Technology

The TLS200 is a newly developed state-of-the-art product by Brimrose which consists of white light source (Brimrose or customer provided), AOTF device, beam forming optics and AOTF driver. It is designed for time-resolvable microscopy applications if the customer would like to switch wavelengths within 20µs or pump multifrequency RF power to the AOTF to get multi-lines simultaneously. The AOTF driver is computer controlled using a Windows based software.

Brimrose offers several versions of the mechanical design in order to interface with different microscopes such as: Zeiss Axioskop 6, Axioplan, Axiotron, and Nikon Diaphot 200/300. TLS-200 can also be available for other microscopes.

Advantages of the TLS 200 include High Speed Microsecond Switching, Solid-State, No Moving Parts, Fiber Coupled and Compact Size. The TLS 200 is great for Fluorescence Spectroscopy. Also Normal, Fluorescence and Raman Time-Resloved Spectral Imaging in the Biomedical Industry. Quality and Process Control in the Microelectronics Sector. We offer Laboratory and OEM Solutions.
