Biomedical imaging encompasses a broad range of

both in-vivo and in-vitro applications from

biomedical research to pharmaceutical

industry and clinical environments.


Allowing better resolution, faster processing

times, selective chromophore excitation,

lasers are finding increasing use in

non-invasive biomedical diagnostic

and therapeutic digital

pathology techniques.


     Lasers have many advantages over conventional light sources used in optical imaging:

  • availability of higher powers at wavelengths ranging from UV to Mid-IR
  • wavelength tunability, enabling selective excitation of different chromophores
  • high beam quality, i.e. collimated output with gaussian beam mode, allowing for high spatial resolution imaging
  • high repetition rate allowing fast image generation
  • availability of ultrashort femtosecond pulses for real-time studies of molecular and sub-cellar dynamics

Allowing higher degree of resolution, faster image generation and processing times, lasers are playing an increasing role in early detection cancer diagnosis and treatment applications.

IPG provides a number of fiber and fiber-pumped bulk hybrid lasers at near-infrared and mid-infrared wavelengths ideal for diagnostic imaging applications, including single and multi-photon fluorescence microscopy imaging, wide field imaging, advanced optical coherence tomography (OCT), fluorescence molecular tomography (FMT), among others.

IPG offers fiber-pumped ultrafast femtosecond Cr:Zn/Se oscillators covering wavelengths from Near to Mid-IR without the need to pump complex expensive OPOs pumped by Ti:S lasers. 

IPG fiber lasers are also used for pumping CW OPOs providing wide spectrum of tunable CW from visible to Mid-IR.
