New Multi-photon filters from Semrock

For NLO / Multiphoton users, Semrock has released a variety of new multiphoton products.  Moving deeper into the NIR region is the FF01-890/SP-25 shortpass emission filter and the corresponding FF875-Di01-25x36 dichroic beamsplitter.  The FF01-625/90-25 multiphoton bandpass emission filter for CARS, and the NFD01-1064-25x26 notch dichroic beamsplitter for both CARS and SRS are also available.

New Semrock mirrors available

New 1.1mm General Purpose Mirrors are designed to provide excellent (98% avg) reflectivity over a broad wavelength range on a thin (1.05mm) substrate. These mirrors were designed for microscope applications, to be installed in the lightpath at a 45 degree angle of incidence and are excellent for laser ablation, photobleaching applications and multimodal excitation light switching. In stock are the MGP01-350-700-25x36 for 350-700nm visible light applications, and MGP01-650-1300-25x36 for 650-1300 near-IR applications.
