At JFRC we use a few custom electronics assemblies with many of our custom 2P microscopes (MIMMS and non-MIMMS systems). The designs for these systems (schematic, PCB, and case mechanical designs) will be shared here.

PMT controller

The JFRC PMT Controller (project number JF-SV-AD) is used to control the Hamamatsu GaAsP PMT modules H10770PA-40 and H10770PB-40.

  • two channels, to control two PMTs,
  • provides low noise PMT power,
  • sets PMT control voltage with 10-turn potentiometer and displays control voltage with panel meter
  • control voltage can be turned on and off with TTL signal
  • monitors PMT signal (after PMT current pre-amp) to detect high-current situation, and sets PMT control voltage to zero in this case.

The trip voltage and trip time constant for protecting the PMT from accidental bright light exposure can both be set (voltage: 0-5 V, time constant: 2-20 ms).

Nanomotion control box


The designs for this system are not yet posted. Bother Dan Flickinger to speed up this process.

The JFRC Nanomotion control box controls the movement of the Nanomotion piezo finger motors which move the mirrors and dichroics in the MIMMS and non-MIMMS In Vivo microscope systems.

Cambridge galvo driver board mounting


The designs for this system are not yet posted. Bother Dan Flickinger to speed up this process.

This is a system for mounting (with adequate thermal management) and adding connectors to the driver boards for the Cambridge galvonometer scanners.
