The current design of the system is for a long-pass dichroic beam splitter; however, a custom mount can be slightly modified to accommodate a short-pass dichroic mirror instead.
DM: dichroic mirror; LMA TDF: large-mode-area Tm-doped fiber; BP SAM: black phosphorus saturable absorber mirror.
The episcopic illumination block of the microscope was modified by an excitation filter and a dichroic mirror. The excitation filter was a broad-band color glass UG11, coated by a reflecting short-pass filter, and the dichroic mirror (Schott Glaswerke, Mainz, Germany) was optimized for 340 nm and low fluorescence.
Patented dichroic mirror and microlens technology deliver thousands of diverging light beams to create a homogeneous distribution of light and efficient heat management over the entire surgical site.
The laser light is coupled into the back of the objective lens with a dichroic mirror, which enables us to simultaneously view and trap the microspheres.
Patented dichroic mirror and micro-lens technology deliver thousands of diverging right beams to create a homogeneous distribution of right and efficient heat management over the entire surgical site.
IBS coatings are precise and repeatable, making them suitable for spectrally demanding applications such as steep-edge dichroic mirrors and broad band mirrors.
