Newport's WEU-02 wavelength extension unit is designed to expand the capability of femtosecond lasers. Through a series of user controls, the WEU-02 can be configured for use in various spectroscopy, imaging, and pump-probe applications. It can also be integrated into two-photon microscope set-ups to add modalities for enhanced imaging capabilities.

How do real neural networks, composed of numerous different types of neurons, interconnected by complex arrangements of synapses, process information? Randy M. Bruno, Ph.D., Assistant Professor at the Department of Neuroscience, Columbia University, NY, USA is pursuing this question using the rodent whisker-barrel system. Here, anatomically and functionally distinct networks - barrels and barrel columns - are clearly identifiable, and the sensory transducers that provide input are directly controllable.
