Lambda VF-1 Edge™
Tunable Filter Changer

To take advantage of the new VersaChrome® Edge filters, Sutter has introduced the Lambda VF-1 Edge system that allows user selection of the both the long and short end of the bandpass in nanometer steps. This new device incorporates two of our VF-1 filter tilting modules and a Sutter Lambda 10-B controller to give direct control over the bandpass via the unit’s keypad or through external control from a computer or other device. Individual VF-1 modules can also be used with the VersaChrome Edge filters to provide tunable high-pass or short pass filtering.

The filter sets available for the VF-1 Edge cover the wavelengths from less than 400 nm to more than 1100 nm. Within this range you can select the half-power point for the high-pass and low-pass filters to any value in steps of 1 nm. If the low pass wavelength is set higher than the high pass wavelength the transmission will be blocked, acting as a shutter. In the case of this filter set there are more than 5,000 combinations of filter settings available.

Creating Your Own Bandpass Filter, Craig Hodgson, Ph.D. and Cicely Rathmell, M.Sc.,

The latest development from Semrock® is the VersaChrome Edge filter technology that allows selection of the band-width as well as the center wavelength. This new filter system uses separate tunable high-pass and low -pass filters in series to define the bandpass. An additional filter is used in series with these filters to provide the best blocking outside the pass-band.

    FEATURES
  • Separate tunable high-pass and low-pass filters let user define the bandpass in nanometer steps
  • User selectable band-width and center wavelength
  • Blocking filter ensures best blocking outside bandpass
  • Based on Semrock® VersaChrome Edge technology
    APPLICATIONS
  • Hyperspectral imaging wavelength selection
  • Fluorescence microscopy
  • Calcium imaging
  • FURA
  • Optogenetics
