EPFL choses MICAO 3DSR for best axial localization in microscopy

A MicAO 3DSR adaptive optics system has recently been installed in the laboratory of Pablo Rivera Fuentes at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). Pablo chose the system because it provides the best axial localization precision due to astigmatic PSF induced...

Breakthrough in wavefront sensing for microscopy

GCaMP7 labelled neurons of the live, adult drosophila brain at 45µm depth, imaged with fast, closed-loop Adaptive Optics (AO) on a Light-Sheet microscope, using our new direct wavefront sensing approach – not requiring any guide star. All this has been made...

GAIA telescope alignment with our R-FLEX system

The purpose of the GAIA mission is to provide a three-dimensional map of approximately one billion stars throughout the galaxy and beyond. It gives the detailed physical properties of each star, gathering basic observational data to tackle a large range of problems...

The “Swiss Army Knife” of optics in the SWIR

In this video series, Xavier Levecq, CSO Imagine Optic, presents the 3 products that compose the “Swiss Army Knife” of optics, aka HASO SWIR + R-Flex2 SWIR + LA. Each subsequent product embeds the former and offers additional capabilities through a simple...
