On demand - Innovation Award Shortlist: Biophotonics and medical engineering

Now available on-demand, hear from speakers representing the shortlisted companies in the Biophotonics and medical engineering category from April's Laser World of Photonics Innovation Award.
Join speakers from category winner Hamamatsu and its ORCA-Quest product, alongside fellow nominees Class 5 Photonics (about White Dwarf WD-1300-dual) and Light Conversion, which will highlight its CRONUS-3P laser source for nonlinear microscopy.

This webcast is aimed at chief technical officers (CTOs), heads of research and development (R&D), business development teams and representatives from academia wanting to learn about new, exciting technologies that have been acclaimed by an independent jury of industry experts.

White Dwarf WD-1300-dual
For neuroscientists who want to image deeper, faster and at better resolution, the White Dwarf WD-1300-dual provides the required high-power at 1300 and 1700 nm while excelling in robustness and stability. The White Dwarf is designed to set itself apart from other femtosecond lasers with its high quality and user centricity so that scientists can concentrate on their experiments.

The Hamamatsu ORCA-Quest qCMOS camera combines several features that have not been available in CMOS cameras before. The extremely low noise enabled by the unique sensor integration and readout design, allows the discrimination of photoelectron numbers on pixel-level, a feature that makes the ORCA-Quest the world’s first 2D CMOS sensor with photon number resolving capabilities. It also combines its low noise levels with a very high readout speed of up to 120fps. On the other side of the speed spectrum, the camera also sets a new standard in long-time exposures with CMOS-cameras, by allowing integration times of up to 30 minutes.

Cronus-3P laser source for nonlinear microscopy
Cronus-3P is a laser source developed specifically for advanced nonlinear microscopy. It provides μJ-level pulses down to 50 femtoseconds at repetition rates of up to 2MHz and tunable in the short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) range from 1.25 to 1.8μm, thus covering the biological transparency windows at 1.3μm and 1.7μm for three-photon microscopy.
