Epi Laser illumination Profiles
Many microscope laser illumination techniques involve the use of a beamsplitter or a fluorescent filter cube to direct illumination to the objective. The CaliCube can replace these components, providing an image of the laser illumination system, as seem in the conjugate plane of the microscope to the microscope imaging system. This enables the CaliCube to provide users with an image similar to a laser beam profiler. These images can be used to trouble shoot or evaluate the performance of of these illumination systems as they perform inside the microscope. Laser beam characteristics include Beam Diameter, Beam Quality, Beam Divergence, Beam Wander or Jitter. They are all measurable quantities that a properly configured video camera in the light path of a laser can provide. The CaliCube can be ordered with custom filters to best suite it's performance in a laser environment. It can also be ordered to fit into a beamsplitter turret or slider as shown below.
