CNI reaches the milestone of 2000pcs lasers sold for Optogenetics Applications!


Time: 07-18-2014

In 2010, CNI manufactured 532nm laser was first used in this application. Over the past 4 years, CNI has worked with tens of customers in this field, trying to be a trouble-shooting supplier for lasers. CNI catches the ball of “Optogenetics”. The MxL serials lasers used for this application hit the milestone of shipping 2000pcs today.

The commonly used types are here as a reference:MDL-III-405 MBL-III-473 MLL-FN-473 MGL-III-532 MGL-FN-532 MGL-FN-561 MGL-III-589 MGL-III-593.5 MRL-III-640 MRL-III-671.

Optogenetics, using light to control neurons which have been genetically sensitised to light, is a neuromodulation technique employed in neuroscience that uses a combination of techniques from optics and genetics to control and monitor the activities of individual neurons in living tissue—even within freely-moving animals—and to precisely measure the effects of those manipulations in real-time. It opens up a new research field, promising new hope to suffers of cell diseases.



One of the principal parts during the research is “Light”. It’s supposed to be accurately timed and high intensitive optical pulse to activate light sensitive channels and halorhodopsins, by which it is possible to motivate and inhibit neurons. In order to meet these requirements, CNI provides lasers with short light time. Since the photoreceptors have different light stabilities, it is available with adjustable amplitude, i.e. analog modulation. And to meet the requirement of more customers, the fiber-coupled modules are alternative.
