The SP detector from Leica Microsystems denotes a compound detection unit for point scanning microscopes, in particular confocal microscopes. The SP detector splits light into up to 5 spectral bands. The bands are independent and continuously tunable within the full visible spectrum. The light in each band is detected by a light sensor: a photomultiplier tube (PMT) or a Hybrid Detector (HyD). https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/what-is-a-spectral-detector-sp-detector/ Sun, 10 Mar 2019 23:00:00 +0000 Dr. Rolf T. Borlinghaus https://www.leica-microsystems.com/19763 Metallography Quality Assurance Forensics See the Structure with Microscopy - Know the Composition with Laser Spectroscopy The advantages of a 2-in-1 materials analysis solution combining optical microscopy and laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) for simultaneous visual and chemical inspection are described in this report. The basic principles of the 2-in-1 solution and a comparison between it and other common materials analysis methods, such scanning electron microscopy (SEM), are explained to demonstrate how a rapid, efficient workflow is achieved. A 2-in-1 analysis solution can reduce significantly the cost and time for obtaining material image and composition data. Such data are instrumental in assuring quality and reliability to make confident decisions quickly during production, quality control, failure analysis, and research and development in industries and fields, such as automotive and metallurgy. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/see-the-structure-with-microscopy-know-the-composition-with-laser-spectroscopy/ Mon, 11 Jun 2018 13:39:00 +0000 PhD James DeRose, Dr. Kay Scheffler https://www.leica-microsystems.com/20117 Metallography Leica is MAD about LIBS When analyzing material for cleanliness testing, users normally just want a simple way to know whether the particle under scrutiny is normal debris or something more risky. Users can now “LIBS” it to acquire rapidly the composition and then move onto the next manufacturing step. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/leica-is-mad-about-libs/ Sun, 22 Apr 2018 22:00:00 +0000 Mike Tjepkema, PhD James DeRose https://www.leica-microsystems.com/10147 White Confocal Confocal Microscopy Spectral Detection – How to Define the Spectral Bands that Collect Probe-specific Emission To specifically collect emission from multiple probes, the light is first separated spatially and then passes through a device that defines a spectral band. Classically, this is a common glass-based bandpass filter. More recent approaches employ arrays for fixed-band detection or moving mirror sliders for fully tunable band characteristics. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/spectral-detection-how-to-define-the-spectral-bands-that-collect-probe-specific-emission/ Thu, 27 Jun 2013 18:21:00 +0000 Dr. Rolf T. Borlinghaus https://www.leica-microsystems.com/4598 Confocal Microscopy White Confocal Spectral Imaging To separate fractions of the emission for recording channels that reproduce the emission of individual fluorochromes, it is necessary to spatially disperse the emission spectrally. This is possible by employing dichroic mirrors or a genuine dispersive element like a prism or a grating. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/spectral-imaging/ Fri, 09 Dec 2011 10:20:00 +0000 Dr. Rolf T.
