Univid Universal SWIR Video Microscope
PN0791 was designed to mount infinity microscope objectives and visible, NIR, and/or SWIR cameras . Univid is unique in that three cameras can be installed simultaneously. To divert the optical path to one of three cameras, simply pull/push the 45° mirror block into position. A beam splitter block is located in infinity space to insert/remove the splitter from the optical path between objectives and camera for maximum light throughput.
The optional 4 position turret can be added for fast change of objective lenses. Univid is equipped with a 200mm tube lens, with custom tube lens coatings available for visible, NIR, and SWIR.
Applications requiring visible, NIR, and/or SWIR analysis
Microscopic NIR infrared microscopy
Microscopic SWIR microscopy
Up to 3 cameras can be installed and quickly switched between
Camera block with 45° mirror enables quick diversion of optical path to one of three cameras
Inline light injection
Infinity space block with beam splitter can be installed for use with light injection block. Block allows beam splitter to be completely removed from optical path between lens and camera for maximum light throughput.
2 infinity space ports compatible with infinity microscope M26 objectives
200mm tube lens: custom tube lens coatings available for visible, NIR, and SWIR
25mm or 1 inch optical filters can be inserted in any camera, infinity space, or turret port.
Transmission from 400 to 2,000 µm
C mount camera adapters
Compatible with cameras up to 2/3" sensor size.
Optional 4 position turret with M26 objectives (compatible with 2X, 5X, 10X, 20X, 50X and 100X lenses)

Cameras and Lenses
The capable bandwidth of the SWIR camera is between 400 - 1,800nm and mounts to the top of the Univid microscope.
Compatible NIR objective lenses include magnifications of 2X, 5X, 10X, 20X, and 50X. Lenses can be mounted on [PN0792] 4 Position Turret or directly to the Univid microscope.
45° Right Angle Mirror
Located in the camera block (top removable block), the 45° mirror diverts the optical path to one of three cameras. As shown in Figure 1 above, simply pull the 45° mirror block into the second position.
Non-Polarizing Beam Splitter
Located in the infinity space block (bottom removable block), the beam splitter is positioned for inline light injection. To obtain maximum light throughput, the beam splitter can be removed from the optical path between lens and camera by pulling the beam splitter block into the second position.
