Chameleon VUE Harmonics Accessory

Chameleon VUE is a series of Harmonics Generation options for generating visible and deep UV wavelengths in an automated hands-free package.

Visible and Ultraviolet Extension (VUE) for Chameleon Lasers

VUE modules communicate with your Chameleon Ultra, Vision, or Discovery laser to automatically optimize crystal phase matching as the wavelength of the pump laser varies. This ensures handsfree customer-friendly operation at all wavelengths.

  • VUE SHG is a second harmonic generation system, covering 340 nm to 540 nm for Ultra II or Vision II lasers
  • VUE THG is a third harmonic generation system, spanning 227 nm to 540 nm
  • The Discovery VUE SHG covers 330 nm to 660 nm

The modular instrument design is purpose-built to be user-friendly and compact, with software-controlled wavelength tuning available. Careful optimization of the nonlinear conversion processes results in high efficiencies with minimum pulse broadening. The system is also designed to optimize beam pointing stability and the beam intensity profile.

Chameleon VUE is ideal for spectroscopic applications such as transient absorption spectroscopy and time-resolved imaging techniques such as FRET and FLIM.

The Discovery VUE SHG is specifically designed to take advantage of the unique Octave spanning tuning of the Discovery laser, providing gap-free, high power output from 330 nm to 1320 nm.
