Photo ablation / activation / ...
With the Firefly system, you have one spot, fired with a click of the mouse. Adding the Geo gives the possibilty to create patterns or geometrical shapes for illumination of your sample.
Modular scanner-based and DMD-based pattern or spot illumination systems for your microsope.
Define the area(s) where you need the light for e.g.
in an intuitive interface. Choose wavelength(s) and optical power... and: execute!!
You can easily program sequences where you can combine multiple patterns, and define the timing for each of the elements.
