Thorlabs' Implantable Fiber Optic Cannulae deliver light from an LED or laser light source to optically sensitive cells within a specimen. The cannulae consists of a ferrule and a length of protruding optical fiber that is typically surgically implanted using stereotaxic guidance. After implanting, the ferrule remains exposed; this provides an interface with our line of Optogenetics Equipment (see the OG Selection Guide tab for a full listing).

The cannulae sold on this page use a Ø200 µm, 0.39 NA fiber (item # FT200EMT) with a variety of ferrule and length options. Cannulae with Ø1.25 mm (LC) ferrules are less invasive and lightweight, making them ideal for smaller specimens or placing multiple cannulae in close proximity. In contrast, Ø2.5 mm ferrules provide a more robust connection and cables are easier to handle and ideal for larger specimens. Stainless steel ferrules are easy to score for better adherence when implanted and fixated with glue, while ceramic ferrules are lighter for reduced stress on the specimen.

Cannulae are available with a flat cleave to a pre-determined length (2, 5, 10, or 20 mm). Uncleaved cannula with a 50 mm scissor-cut length can be cleaved by the user to any desired length using the procedure outlined on the Cleaving Procedure tab. An implant guide for the cannula sold on this page is also available below in packs of one or five.

Multiple fiber NAs are available across our optogenetics product line; cannulae with a 0.39 NA are sold on this page.

Each cannula includes a protective cap that shields the ferrule end from dust and other hazards. Additional CAPF Fiber Caps are also sold separately. If the ferrule end becomes dirty from use, we offer a selection of inspection tools, as well as fiber optic cleaning products.

Numerical Aperture (NA)
For best performance, choose a patch cable and cannula with the same fiber core diameter and NA. Numerical Aperture (NA) defines the angle of the cone of light leaving the fiber tip at the end of the cannula and is a dimensionless quantity used by fiber manufacturers to specify the acceptance angle of an optical fiber. Cannulae with a lower NA provide a narrower cone of light at the tip, resulting in higher light intensity over a smaller area, while cannulae with a higher NA generate a wider cone of light that illuminates a larger area with lower intensity.

Mating Sleeve and Patch Cable Compatibility
The ferrule diameter of a patch cable and cannula is the key factor for physical compatibility with an interconnect and mating sleeve. Mixing stainless steel and ceramic ferrules should not introduce significant additional signal losses. Cannulae and patch cables using Ø1.25 mm (LC) ferrules can be connected using the ADAL1 mating sleeve or ADAL3 interconnect. Patch cables and cannulae using Ø2.5 mm (FC) ferrules are compatible with the ADAF1 mating sleeve and ADAF2 interconnect.

Custom Cannulae
Thorlabs also manufactures custom fiber optic cannulae. We can provide different fiber and/or ferrule types as well as different fiber lengths. Please see the Custom Cannula tab for details.

Fiber Cleaving

A cleave, or precision cut, is used to ensure proper light propagation out of the fiber tip. Thorlabs' uncleaved cannula must be cleaved before use; a cleaved cannula can be cleaved again if a shorter fiber length is desired. We recommend the following procedure for cleaving the fiber end.

Required Materials

  • Uncleaved Fiber Optic Cannula
  • S90R Fiber Scribe
  • BFG1 Bare Fiber Gripper
  • KW32 Kimwipes™ Lint-Free Wipes
  • Isopropyl Alcohol
  • JEL10 Eye Loupe, EYL10X Premium Eye Loupe, or Microscope
  • FTDU Fiber Optic Disposal Unit (Recommended)

Cleaving Procedure

  1. Clean the fiber end of the cannula using a lint-free wipe and isopropyl alcohol. Do not use acetone, as this will damage the TECS cladding on the exposed fiber.
  2. Measure the desired length of fiber from the end of the ferrule. Mark this length on the fiber with a marker.
  3. Place the cannula on a hard surface and secure the fiber end with a finger or tape, as shown in Figure 1.
  4. Hold the cleaving tool perpendicular to the fiber and gently score the fiber as shown in Figure 1 to the right. Do not apply excessive pressure. The fiber should not break off at this point.
    This step is critical in obtaining a good cleave. If the scribe is made too hard, the fiber will break instead of cleaving. If the scribe is too light, the fiber will not cleave.
  5. Hold the cannula in one hand, and grip the fiber end with a bare fiber gripper in the other end as shown in Figure 2. Pull the fiber straight back until the fiber cleaves as shown in Figure 3. Dispose of the scrap fiber end in the FTDU or any medical or fiber sharps container.
  6. If the fiber does not break with a moderate amount of tension, repeat steps 4-5 above applying slightly more pressure when scoring. Inspect the cleave using an eye loupe or microscope.

A good cleave will be flat across the fiber and perpendicular to the optic axis. There should be no ‘tag’ (i.e., protrusion) from the edge of the fiber. The region where the initial scribe was made may be visible. It should be less than 5% of the core diameter. Be patient as this process takes a little practice. Please be aware that it will be more difficult to achieve a high-quality cleave in large-core-diameter fibers compared to thinner fibers. A view of a properly cleaved fiber end as seen through a Thorlabs' JEL10 eye loupe is shown in Figure 4.

I have purchased the Multimode Fiber from Thorlabs (CFM22L02). We want to find the guide mode, therefore, can you provide us the refractive index of the core and cladding for this fiber.
jlow  (posted 2015-05-13 11:16:06.0)
Response from Jeremy at Thorlabs: The fiber used in the cannula is FG200UCC and we regret that we cannot provide this proprietary information.
jjiang  (posted 2013-04-25 00:41:50.897)
Do you sell the stainless steel ferrule only without the fiber?
tcohen  (posted 2013-04-25 12:41:00.0)
Response from Tim at Thorlabs: We can provide 2.5mm OD or 1.25mm OD stainless steel ferrules of various ID. We will contact you to discuss your dimensional requirements.
tcohen  (posted 2012-07-10 11:32:00.0)
Response from Tim at Thorlabs: Thank you for your feedback! We are able to drill out stainless steel ferrules to custom ID such as 450um or 550um. I will contact you to discuss the tolerances of your fibers so we can provide a suitable solution for you.
cmarmstr  (posted 2012-07-09 16:23:18.0)
It would be very useful to have a ferrule with a larger ID-- 450 or 550 or so. Is that possible?

Optogenetics Selection Guide

Thorlabs offers a wide range of optogenetics components; the compatibility of these products in select standard configurations is discussed in detail here. Please contact Technical Support for assistance with items outside the scope of this guide, including custom fiber components for optogenetics.

 

Single-Site Stimulation

One Light Source to One Cannula Implant

The most straightforward method for in vivo light stimulation of a specimen is to use a single fiber optic with a single LED light source. The single wavelength LED is powered by an LED driver, and then the illumination output is fiber-coupled into a patch cable, which connects to the implanted cannula. See the graphics and expandable compatibility tables below for the necessary patch cables and cannulae to create this setup. To choose the appropriate LED and driver, see below or the full web presentation.

Bilateral Stimulation

The ability to accurately and simultaneously direct light to multiple locations within a specimen is desired for many types of optogenetics experiments. For example, bilateral stimulation techniques typically target neurons in two spatially separated regions in order to induce a desired behavior. In more complex experiments involving the simultaneous inhibition and stimulation of neurons, delivering light of two different monochromatic wavelengths within close proximity enables the user to perform these experiments without implanting multiple cannulae, which can increase stress on the specimen.

Bilateral stimulation can be achieved with several different configurations depending on the application requirements. The sections below illustrate examples of different configurations using Thorlabs' optogenetics products.


Option 1: One Light Source to Two Cannula Implants Using Rotary Joint Splitter

Thorlabs' RJ2 1x2 Rotary Joint Splitter is designed for optogenetics applications and is used to split light from a single input evenly between two outputs. The rotary joint interface allows connected patch cables to freely rotate, reducing the risk of fiber damage caused by a moving specimen. See the graphic and compatibility table below for the necessary cables and cannulae to create this setup. For LEDs and drivers, see below or the full web presentation.

LED DriverFiber-Coupled LEDHybrid Patch Cable1x2 Rotary Joint SplitterOG Patch CableOG Patch CableADAF2 InterconnectADAF2 InterconnectFiber Optic CannulaFiber Optic CannulaFiber Optic Cannula

Option 2: One or Two Light Sources to Two Cannula Implants

If the intent is for one LED source to connect to two cannulae for simultaneous light modulation, then a bifurcated fiber bundle can be used to split the light from the LED into each respective cannula. For dual wavelength stimulation (mixing two wavelengths in a single cannula) or a more controlled split ratio between cannula, one can use a multimode coupler to connect one or two LEDs to the cannulae. If one cable end is left unused, the spare coupler cable end may be terminated by a light trap. See the graphic and compatibility table below for the necessary cables and cannulae to create this setup. For LEDs and drivers, see below or the full web presentation.

Two Light Sources into One Dual-Core Cannula Implant

For bilateral stimulation applications where the two cannulas need to be placed in close proximity (within ~1 mm), Thorlabs offers dual-core patch cables and cannulae that are designed for this specific application. Each core is driven by a separate light source, enabling users to stimulate and/or supress nerve cells in the same region of the specimen. See the graphic and compatibility table below for the necessary cables and cannulae to create this setup. For LEDs and drivers, see below or the full web presentation.

Mounting Surface of OGF Cannula Impant Guide
  • Improves Adhesion and Stability During Implantation
  • Compatible with Ø1.25 mm and Ø2.5 mm Fiber Optic Cannulae with ≥5 mm Length
  • Ø3.8 mm (OGL) or Ø5.1 mm (OGF) Mounting Surface with Grooved Ring for Dental Cement
  • Lightweight Surgical Titanium Construction (≤0.11 g)
  • Weep Holes for Glue and Epoxy to Secure a Cannula
  • Compatible with Stereotaxic Cannula Holders

These Cannula Implant Guides are designed to provide guidance and stability for a fiber optic cannula during an implantation procedure. The bottom surface of each implant guide features a roughened surface and circular groove (see image to the right) that increases the surface area available to dental cement and improves adhesion to the specimen. A 1.6 mm long protrusion on the implant guide helps stabilize the guide when implanted. Each implant is constructed using lightweight surgical titanium (≤0.11 g) which can be sterilized prior to use. For convenience, the cannula guides are offered below in packs of one or five.

For best results when implanting a cannula, the OGL and OGF should be used with a cannula holder and stereotaxic guidance equipment. To affix the cannula within the implant guide, first insert the cannula into the receptacle of the implant guide (see drawing to the right). Then, add a small amount of cement or epoxy to the cannula via the two Ø0.8 mm weep holes. Finally, attach the cannula ferrule to an XCL (Ø1.25 mm ferrule) or XCF (Ø2.5 mm ferrule) cannula holder.

The OGL implant guide is compatible with our standard Ø1.25 mm cannulae (ceramic and stainless steel) and the OGF implant guide is compatible with our standard Ø2.5 mm cannulae (ceramic and stainless steel). When assembled, the length of the protruding fiber is reduced by 2 mm; therefore, these implant guides cannot be used with our 2 mm long cannulae. Additionally, due to the fiber separation distance, the implant guides cannot be used with our dual-core cannulae.
