  • Imaging

    Thorlabs, Inc.

    Welcome to Thorlabs; below you will find links to our imaging systems and components. The products below are not only designed specifically for imaging applications, but they can be easily integrated into our entire line of photonics products. This makes it easy to modify or build custom imaging systems. Thorlabs’ Selection of Imaging Systems consists of our Laser Scanning Microscopy systems and OCT Imaging Systems. Our Laser Scanning Microscopy offering includes multiphoton and confocal fluorescence microscopy systems. Thorlabs is a leader in the development of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) Imaging Systems. We offer complete systems as well as a selection of components that are ideal for constructing a custom OCT system. Our series of Laser-Scanning Cytometry instruments are non-confocal systems that utilize laser-spot scanning illumination. The detection system, which combines PMTs for fluorescence detection and photodiodes for absorbance and scatter detection, offers excellent quantitative cytometric performance and imaging capabilities. Our Burleigh® line or microscope platforms, micromanipulators, and accessories provide leading edge stability and control for electrophysiology research, and our line of Optogenetics equipment includes fiber optic components and light sources for in vivo optical stimulation for neuroscience research.

  • Scientific Cameras

    Thorlabs, Inc.

    Thorlabs' Scientific-Grade Cameras are specifically designed for microscopy and other demanding applications. The Zelux™ CMOS cameras have small footprints and provide cost-effective solutions for general-purpose imaging applications. Kiralux® cameras have CMOS sensors with high quantum efficiency in a compact housing and are offered in monochrome, color, NIR-enhanced, and polarization-sensitive versions. Our polarization-sensitive CMOS camera is ideal for materials inspection, flaw detection, and other advanced techniques using polarization. The Quantalux® monochrome sCMOS cameras are fast frame rate imagers that combine high dynamic range with extremely low read noise for low-light applications. They are available in either a passively cooled compact housing or a hermetically sealed TE-cooled housing. We also offer scientific CCD cameras with a variety of features, including versions optimized for operation at UV, visible, or NIR wavelengths; fast-frame-rate cameras; TE-cooled or non-cooled housings; and versions with the sensor face plate removed. An intuitive software package, API and SDK for developers, and third-party software support provide options for custom system control and image acquisition.

  • Optogenetics

    Thorlabs, Inc.

    Thorlabs offers a line of optogenetics equipment that allows for in vivo optical stimulation for neuroscience research. We currently offer a large selection of optogenetics supplies, including implantable fiber optic cannulae with ceramic or stainless steel Ø1.25 or Ø2.5 mm ferrules, available both cleaved and scissor-cut. We offer lightweight multimode patch cables with an optional rotary joint. They have ferrule ends for mating to our cannulae using an interconnect or ceramic mating sleeve. A separate 1x1 rotary joint that accepts FC/PC multimode patch cables is also available. Cannula holders and implant guides provide additional stability and accuracy when implanting cannulae. Our optogenetics kits provide all the necessary components for an optogenetics experiment including LED, patch cable, cannulae, and accessories. Customers can add, remove, or replace parts in these kits to customize the purchase for their needs. We also offer couplers/splitters, a 1x2 rotary joint splitter, fiber-coupled LED light sources, and a 473 nm fiber-coupled laser.

  • Motion Control

    Thorlabs, Inc.

    Welcome to Thorlabs; below you will find links to our selection of Motion Control products, a subset of our entire line of photonics products. Thorlabs’ motion control products are separated into manual and motorized linear and rotation stages, multiaxis platforms, actuators, and controllers. The manual and motorized stages can frequently be configured into 1-, 2-, or 3-axis solutions. Since many of the stages are available in either manual or motorized versions, creating a custom system is easy. For nanopositioning applications like waveguide and fiber coupling, our line of multiaxis flexure stages are ideal. Both the motorized stages and the multiaxis platforms are supported by a complete line of controllers for the various motors and piezoelectric actuators. In addition, we support custom and OEM motion control applications with an extensive line of manual, motorized, and piezo actuators as well as threaded adjustment screws.

  • 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.

  • Optomechanics

    Thorlabs, Inc.

    Welcome to Thorlabs; below you will find links to our extensive Optomechanical product line, a subset of our entire line of photonics products. Optomechanics is a broad category that includes optical tables and breadboards, optical mounts and construction components, mechanical devices with integrated electronics, kits that make it easy to buy a popular set of components or a set of components that can be assembled to perform a specific function, and general laboratory supplies and tools. Because of the large selection, Optomechanics does not include translation and rotation stages and their controllers; instead those products have their own category.
