As I attend a course about LabView, I created a Graphical User Interface for the Thorlabs LDC205 Arduino controller.
As my daily job is being a physics PhD student at the Advanced Optical Imaging Group, some good spin-off projects appear which can be released into the open source wilderness. The story starts with a 405nm diode laser, which we installed into a Thorlabs LDC205. The problem with this super controller that there is no RS232 or USB connectivity. Just 3 BNC connectors (1,2,3). As we want to computerize our dSTORM controls, the LDC has to be pimped… Continue reading “Arduino controller for Thorlabs LDC200C Series”
