  • Scientific Cameras

    Thorlabs, Inc.

    Thorlabs' Scientific-Grade CCD Cameras are specifically designed for microscopy and other demanding applications. Our monochrome and color scientific cameras are based on high quantum efficiency, low-noise CCD imagers, which makes them ideal for multispectral imaging, fluorescence microscopy, and other imaging techniques.The features and options in our cameras have been chosen and optimized to benefit your research. For example, cooled cameras are available for low-light, long exposure applications. Choose from two industry-standard interfaces designed to ease integration of multiple cameras or to maximize data transfer rates. An intuitive software package, API and SDK for developers, and third-party software support provide options for custom system control and image acquisition.

  • sCMOS Camera

  • Light Analysis

    Thorlabs, Inc.

    Welcome to Thorlabs; below you will find links to detectors and instrumentation that measure the various properties of light, a subset of our entire line of photonics products. Thorlabs offers an extensive selection of instruments that measure the properties of light. Our versatile power and energy meters can be used with over 25 different sensors in order to make NIST-traceable power and energy measurements. If the convenience of a meter is not desired, our selection of detectors includes basic photodiodes (uncalibrated and calibrated), photodetectors (biased, amplified, and avalanche), CCD and CMOS arrays, position detectors, integrating spheres, and photomultiplier tubes. The Beam Characterization category contains beam profilers (camera and scanning slit), a wavefront sensor, spectrometers, and interferometers, while the Polarimetery link leads to a selection of instruments used to measure and control the polarization of light.

  • Fourier Transform Optical Spectrum Analyzer, 350 - 1100 nm

    OSA201C - Thorlabs, Inc.

    Thorlabs' Optical Spectrum Analyzers (OSAs) perform highly accurate spectral measurements. Compatible with fiber-coupled and free-space light sources, these compact benchtop instruments suit a wide variety of applications, such as analyzing the spectrum of a telecom signal, resolving the Fabry-Perot modes of a gain chip, and identifying gas absorption lines. Many commonly available OSAs use grating-based monochromators, which have slow acquisition times due to the need to mechanically scan the grating and average out noise at each wavelength. Thorlabs' OSAs acquire the spectrum via a Fourier transform using a scanning Michelson interferometer in a push/pull configuration. This approach dramatically improves the acquisition time, enables a high-precision wavelength meter mode with 7 significant figures and ±1 part-per-million accuracy, and allows the included software to provide robust statistical analysis of the acquired spectra, as explained in the Design tab.

  • Galvo Mirror Systems

    Thorlabs, Inc.

    Thorlabs offers Galvo Mirror Systems for both small (<5 mm) and large (<10 mm) beam diameters. Choose from single- or dual-axis galvo motor options as well as your choice of metallic silver, metallic gold, a dual band dielectric coating for 532/1064 nm, or a broadband dielectric coating for 400 - 750 nm.

  • Galvo-Resonant Scan Head and Controller

    Thorlabs, Inc.

    Our LSK-GR08(/M) Galvo-Resonant Scanner contains one resonant scan mirror and one galvo scan mirror that deflect an incident laser beam in X and Y, respectively. Identical to the galvo-resonant scanner used in our Bergamo® II multiphoton microscopes and complete Cerna®-based confocal systems, the 8 kHz resonant frequency of the resonant scan mirror enables much higher-speed scans than a galvo-galvo system. In our Bergamo system, the scanner can achieve 30 fps at 512 x 512 pixels image resolution.

  • Optics

    Thorlabs, Inc.

    Welcome to Thorlabs; below you will find links to optical components and systems, a subset of our entire line of photonics products. All single element optical components can be found under the optical elements link with the exception of optical components that have polarization properties since they have a separate link. Multi-element systems like beam expanders and objective lenses as well as interferometers, fiber collimators, reference cells, modulators, and other optical devices can be found by choosing the optical systems link. Thorlabs also manufactures an extensive line of free-space and fiber optic isolators; stock items ship the same day that they are ordered while our custom orders benefit from our streamlined design and manufacturing process, which minimizes lead time.
