  • Publication number: 20220034812
    Abstract: An optical arrangement for fluorescence microscopy applications. Electromagnetic radiation from a radiation source is directed onto a biological sample in the form of a light sheet. One of more fluorophore(s) is contained in the sample. The radiation photoactivates the fluorophore(s) by exciting them from a state which they cannot be exited to fluoresce to a state which they can be exited to fluoresce by illuminating with electromagnetic radiation of a particular wavelength, and subsequently photodeactivating them. Multiphoton beams of nonclassical light are directed onto a first optical system the beam(s) are directed onto a sample of the light sheet. Fluorescent radiation of fluorophores, can be excited within the light sheet by the plurality of multiphoton beams occurring simultaneously on/in the sample. The fluorescence radiation occurs by means of a second optical system on a detection system which measures in a spatially resolving manner.

  • Publication number: 20220034813
    Abstract: In the optical arrangement for fluorescent microscopic applications, one or more multiphoton beams, but at least one or two photon pair beams, from a source of non-classical light is/are directed at a first optical system, consisting of an arrangement of at least one lens or one photon-reflecting element or another beam-forming element or a combination thereof. The first optical system (3) is designed to shape the non-classical light into a light sheet (4) or a light sheet-like shape and thence to direct it at a specimen (5), so that fluorescent radiation is excited by means of multiphoton absorption using the multiple multiphoton beams that are simultaneously incident on/in the specimen. Fluorescent radiation (6) obtained by excitation is incident by means of a second optical system (7) on a detection system (8) that is designed for the spatially resolved capture of fluorescent radiation.

  • Publication number: 20200398374
    Abstract: The invention concerns a method and an apparatus for processing an object (1) by means of interfering laser beams. It is the task of the invention to provide for an improved compensation of the aberrations accumulated over the beam path in such processes/apparatuses, since these are a substantial disturbing factor with respect to the precision in structuring the material. Furthermore, the influence of the period course, i.e. the spatial modulation of the period of the modification produced in the material of the object (1), shall be improved. The invention proposes that laser radiation is generated as a collimated laser beam (3). The intensity distribution and/or the phase progression is influenced over the cross-section of the laser beam (3) to correct aberrations. The laser beam (3) is divided into two partial beams (6, 7). Finally, the partial beams (6, 7) are deflected and focused so that the partial beams (6, 7) overlap in a processing zone (10) in the material of the object (1).

  • Publication number: 20200153190
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for stably transmitting laser radiation through an optical waveguide (3), wherein two or more modes of the laser radiation propagating in the optical waveguide (3) interfere and form a mode interference pattern in the optical waveguide, as a result of which a thermally induced refractive index grating is produced in the optical waveguide (3). It is an object of the invention to demonstrate an effective approach for stabilizing the output signal of the optical waveguide (3) in a fiber-based laser/amplifier combination at high output powers, i.e. for avoiding mode instability. The invention achieves this object by virtue of the fact that a relative spatial phase shift between the mode interference pattern and the thermally induced refractive index grating is set in the direction of propagation of the laser radiation.
