Great blog post from Project Partner PI – Physik Instrumente. The article summarizes very well the concept of the GATTAscope project and which componenents of PI are used: Blog Post – PI
The Cage System The cage system is the essential optomechnical component at the back port of the microscope. It is responsible for adjusting the focus and the TIRF angle. First, the two lenses with focal lengths of 25 mm and 100 mm are positioned with a distance of d = f1 + 2*f2. The second
The Beam Path In this video we show the beam path of the laser and why at least two mirrors are mandatory to align a beam. The video nicely illustrates why the degrees of freedom allowed by one mirror are not enough to orient the beam in the right way. It is essential to hit the
The Setup After we presented the single components of the GATTAscope in the last video, today we want to show you how all these components are positioned and guide you from the light source to the camera.
The Microscope Makers A new technology feature in Nature brings the do-it-yourself approach in microscopy in focus. Although light-sheet microscopy is one of the main techniques presented here, the main idea fits perfectly to the GATTAscope project. Building up your own system not only gives you a higher flexibility but also allows you to develop
Overview Video Our latest post introduces the Overview Video, which gives a first insight into the needed components to build a custom TIRF microscope and how the website can support you. Don´t forget to subscribe for free, if you want to stay up to date…
GATTAscope Teaser Video Today we published our teaser video on Youtube. In this video Jürgen Schmied from GATTAquant, Mathias Bach from PI, Sebastian Beer from Hamamatsu and Florian Eich from Olympus explain the basic principles of the GATTAscope project. Watch out for more posts in the next weeks/months and if you want to stay up
