Home of the Axon and Chameleon lasers
Coherent Scotland manufactures the Axon and Chameleon families of lasers among other innovative laser products.
The Coherent Axon is a compact, cost-effective femtosecond laser for life sciences and OEM instrumentation applications in multiphoton microscopy, semiconductor inspection, and nanomanufacturing. The Axon range of lasers are designed to enable easy integration into imaging and industrial tools where space and cost can be limiting factors. It demonstrates the possibilities that can be unlocked when you engineer complicated optical and laser physics into a user-friendly, turnkey system.
Chameleon product line, including Chameleon Ti:Sapphire and Chameleon Discovery NX Lasers, provides market-leading performance in widely tunable, high power, femtosecond lasers for the most demanding requirements in multiphoton imaging, ultrafast spectroscopy, and non-linear materials studies. Even many years after its introduction, Chameleon family of lasers are used by doctors and scientists studying humankind's most pressing medical issues in cancer research, neuroscience, and immunology.
