The LRD-0470 Cyanea™ Series of Collimated Diode (Semiconductor) Lasers are ideal for applications requiring a short wavelength of 470 nm and output power levels of 100 mW to 1000 mW with a high level of long-term output power stability and long operating lifetime at a very competitive cost.
This series has specifically been developed for optogenetics applications where channelrhodopsin 2 (ChR2) is used as the light-gated ion channel. The blue light activated ChR2 has a peak activation wavelength at 470 nm, thus making the LRD-0470 series ideal for ChR2-enabled neuron excitation.
The wavelength tolerance on this series is +/- 5nm when electronically modulating the device. The driver is available as a complete FDA-compliant system or as an O.E.M. component with significantly reduced dimensions.
Available with both on-board and remote on/off control as well as a wide array of output power and stability levels, Laserglow products are currently being used by some of the World's top universities and other prominent research facilities.
