With the highest peak power available for 2-photon microscopy, the White Dwarf allows neuroscientists to exploit advanced multiplexing techniques to image larger volumes at higher speeds. Additionally, the one-box solution offers compactness and robustness.

Yes, the White Dwarf is already installed and tested by many labs. Please contact us, we are happy to share specific references to your application. You can find a first overview of scientific publications from our users below.
The White Dwarf 2p can offer up to two outputs: 960 nm and 1035 nm. The system can be designed to offer all outputs simultaneously or switchable between different outputs. Please contact us for customization options.
Our White Dwarf 2p version can be configured at any single repetition rate between 1 and 10 MHz. The maximum average power is available at the configured repetition rate. Lower repetition rates can be chosen using the built-in pulse-picker. This provides a constant pulse energy at correspondingly lower average power. Example: WhiteDwarf operating at 5 MHz and 1 µJ delivers 5 W; it can be down-picked to 2 MHz and 1 µJ delivering 2 W.
Our service team will install the pump laser and the OPCPA at the customer’s site. Users will receive training on the operation of the White Dwarf.
Yes, we offer the full package including pump laser and OPCPA. The pump laser is integrated into the OPCPA housing on a shared thermally managed breadboard offering a robust one-box solution.
