Phocus MINI

Designed for portability, the Phocus Mini generates nanosecond, NIR pulse energies for photoacoustic imaging applications that require less power. The entire laserhead fits into a 7×12” footprint and ships completely hermetically sealed to protect optical components from the environment. Requiring no installation, the system includes verification hardware to check alignment after shipping or relocation. The size of the system eases integration of the light source inside commercial instrumentation with space constraints. Wavelength tuning is motorized and computer controlled.
