UK distributor Laser Lines has announced the release of a modulated dual line light engine from Cobolt that is optimised for high-end optogenetics research applications.
This version of the Cobolt Dual Combiner offers two emission wavelengths for light-activated proteins, 473nm (up to 50mW) and 594nm (up to 100mW) from one box. Through the integrating of a silent SRS shutter the output beam can be modulated at up to 100Hz with a very short rise time of less than 350μs, with three per cent power stability and an RMS noise of less than 0.3 per cent. Each line can be individually addressed through a software application provided with the lasers, or through RS232/USB communication.
The use of Cobolt’s unique HTCure Technology for laser manufacturing provides a very high level of robustness and insensitivity to ambient conditions, which ensures beam overlap and beam pointing stability. The modulated Dual Combiner is also available with any other 2-line combination of the Cobolt 04-01 series lasers.
