The AiWon Caliburn is the third member of the AiWon series designed to induce controlled damage to biological or other samples. It features a motorized laser focus and laser power attenuator, which is completely software-controlled. Similar to the AiWon, the AiWon Caliburn produces a small laser spot in the center of the field of view. In comparison to continuous-wave lasers generally coupled via an optical fiber, the UGA‑42 Caliburn is equipped with a pulsed laser directly coupled to the system setup. Various pulsed laser light sources with a high peak power are available depending on experimental needs (e.g. at 266 nm, 355 nm, 532 nm).
Modularity and Flexibility
The AiWon Caliburn can be easily combined with all other modules of the AiWon series such as the AiWon Geo selectable shape illumination device or additional ports for fiber coupled light sources. Like all devices of the AiWon series, the AiWon Caliburn can be connected to almost all models of major research microscope brands, giving you the possibility to choose the perfect microscope for your applications and individual needs. The optical setup gives you the freedom to attach the device as an add-on module to a microscope without interfering with the usage of your existing setup (e.g. spinning disk, LSM, etc.).
