The wavelength division mini cube contains a dichroic mirror that combines or separates different wavelengths. Consequently, the cube can be used as a splitter, a combiner or to separate excitation and fluorescence wavelengths.
This version of mini cube has no other filters except a dichroic mirror. However, the sensitivity of fluorescence measurements of the doric mini cube can be increased if narrow band filters for excitation and fluorescent channel are added. Externally, this is done by adding Connectorized U-Brackets with desired filters to respective channels. If the specific filters are put inside the cube, it becomes Fluorescence Mini Cube.
The angle of incidence of light to the dichroic mirror found inside standard Doric mini cubes is 22.5 degrees. That helps better control of s and p polarization. For customers using traditional dichroic filters made for 45 degrees angle of incidence, we can make use of them in a custom productCONTACT US
