Enhancing your Yokogawa CSU Confocal Experience
The Yokogawa spinning disk confocal scanner unit is a class‐leading technology. Borealis upgrades from Spectal Applied Research bring new levels of performance to it.
This patented technology is the product of an innovative research and development program aimed at achieving the best possible imaging performance from Yokogawa Electric spinning disk confocal units. It ensures better uniformity, provides greatly increased light and offers new options for the use of lasers. It does all of this while improving reliability.
The typical Yokogawa CSU‐10 employs illumination that varies across the field of view by more than 20%. If the system is not well aligned, the peak is off‐center and the maximum deviation can be even larger. Borealis modifications inside the Yokogawa CSU provide more efficient collection and utilization of the available light. These changes dramatically improve the light throughput where it is needed most. The result is more power available from a given laser.
The following table compares the performance of different unmodified CSU’s as delivered from Yokogawa Electric with that of a CSU‐10 with the Borealis modifications.
