Yanus Digital Scan Head
The Yanus IV Digital Scan Head is designed for fast scanning of a focused laser beam in the sample plane of a microscope. Typical applications are FRAP or photoactivation. The Yanus IV is used as
- an accessory for the iMIC Digital Microscope and mounts on to the Polytrope Imaging-Mode Switch
- a stand alone component to be integrated into an optical setup like multi-photon microscopy, optical tweezer, STED, etc.
As stand alone component the Yanus can be controlled fully digital, an SDK is provided for this purpose. Alternatively scan positions can be controlled by an analog voltage.
Stefan Hell and his group at the department of NanoBiophotonics (MPI for Biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen) use the Yanus for their super resolution microscopy setups. This is described in two recent publications in Optics Expressand European Journal of Organic Chemistry
