JRC supplied parts. This are parts are manufactured at Janelia. You will be billed for them.
User supplied parts. Get what you don't already have. You will need Pockels cells, shutters, some table topics, diagnostic hardware. You need to power the PMTs and also signal condition properly. We provided some commercial and home-built solutions.
Also, it will be hard to run the scope without the ScanImage 2016 bundle. Contact Bruce Kimmel <email@example.com> about ScanImage.
Standard hardware. This refers to standard mounting hardware (screws, nuts etc; the list is non-exhaustive).
Accessory partslist - NEW - 2p-RAM Accessory Optics Parts List.xlsx
This partslist includes useful items for wide-field imaging, laser scanning photostimulation (optogenetics), and features to align the imaging window to the microscope beam axis.
More information here.
Unless you have your own solutions in mind you will likely want to get the wide-field imaging and alignment stuff.

PMT Shutters Modification
This modification allows the addition of shutters to each PMT channel, placed right in front of the PMT. They have a ~10 ms opening transit time, and should block very little detection light while open (not more than a percent or two).
Shutter and driver purchase quote: This quote is for the uni-stable (normally closed) shutter. This may no longer be available, except with a minimum qty order (recent change announced on Vincent website). If so, we think that the bistable version (NS25B1T0L-VED) should fit OK and work fine. It might actually open faster, so may be preferrable overall.
Modification instructions: The asphere lens can be removed from the Thorlabs lens tube mount and mounted in the new part. Once the shutter is mounted, the wires will need to be soldered to the connector provided with the VED24 driver. Shutter driver settings note:
The settings for an NS25S type shutter operating with a VED24 driver are as follows, for the ‘Function Switches’ and ‘Pulse Duration’: Switch 1 = Up, Switch 2 = Down, Switch 3 = Down, Switch 4 = Up, & Pulse Duration = 4 [[[Switch 1 = LOCAL (‘REMOTE’ is down), Switch 2 = 18VDC, Switch 3 = Uni-stable Mode, Switch 4 = Pulse Set 1, & Pulse Duration = 20msec]]]
Wire cap fabrication files: Use silicone, tape, or make nice wire caps using rapid prototyping method of choice. Included are STEP file, STL file (for 3d printing), or DXF file (for laser-cut acrylic).
