SMLM needs lasers emitting at suitable wavelengths to excite and photoactivate fluorescent molecules for visualization. For fluorescence excitation of paFPs, high laser powers (>500 mW) are beneficial. The Laser Quantum gem family offer this or higher power at various wavelengths with near perfect beam quality in a compact platform. High powers also allow advanced beam shaping techniques as power is not the limiting factor as with diode lasers. Learn about the gem family:
