Gamma Scientific’s tunable LED light source in webinar demo on September 12th

Gamma Scientifics' RS-7 SpectralLEd light sourceGamma Scientific, in conjunction with Laser Focus World magazine, are delivering an exciting Webinar presentation on Tuesday, September 12th that will provide in-depth product information, typical applications, and visual demonstrations of the flexible software and production interface capabilities that give the RS-7 SpectralLED™ Tunable LED Light Source so many advantages over traditional halogen and other LED light sources.

Register for the Webinar here.

The RS-7 SpectralLED™ delivers superior spectral resolution and accuracy with higher brightness and a broader colour gamut than any other currently available halogen or LED-based source for camera and image sensor calibration.

The RS-7 features 35 discrete LED channels, each having 16-bit resolution in intensity settings enabling it to be programmed to produce a uniform output that closely matches virtually any illuminant source in a single compact and versatile instrument.

SpectralLED™ can sweep through wavelengths to simulate a scanning monochromator, but with the advantage of no moving parts. In addition to superior spectral resolution and accuracy, the SpectralLED™ also offers about 10x higher brightness than any competitive product. This allows measurements over a much larger, linear dynamic range, and is sufficient to illuminate virtually any detector at levels up to saturation.

Display colour, intensity and flicker measured with new instruments from Gamma Scientific

Gamma Scientific [ @gammascientific ] has just introduced two new instruments for display measurements. Both offer colour, intensity and flicker testing of all types of LED, LCD, OLED and Quantum Dot screens.

The GS-1160 is the touchscreen-equipped handheld version, while the GS-1160B is designed for the bench and operates in conjunction with PC-based analysis software. The GS-1160 can also be used as a desktop system as it is supported by the same software.

These spectroradiometers, to give them their proper name, deliver faster results with repeatability superior to filter-based instruments. Additional measurement capabilities include gamma, white balance and uniformity.

Data is output on both via USB, or can also be stored on an SD card in the GS-1160 portable model. The GS-1160B can be programmed for custom testing as it has an Application Programming Interface (API). Commands can be sent via RS-232 or the USB.

For detailed specifications and more information about these or other products Gamma Scientific manufacture, please contact us.

Image sensor tests to benefit from new drop-in tuneable LED source

A new turnkey, drop-in calibrated light source for custom and commercially available wafer level testing of CCD and CMOS sensors has been developed by Gamma Scientific from their existing digitally programmable, colour tuneable, RS-7 LED light source.

The new RS-7-4 can deliver virtually any arbitrary spectral power distribution of visible light over a wide range of output luminance. This makes it ideal for accurately characterising a detector’s dynamic range, uniformity, linearity and spectral responsivity.

The RS-7-4 outperforms rival systems due to highly stable DC drive current circuitry that varies the output luminance of manifold discrete LED channels, rather than using pulse width modulation (PWM). This is critical when testing high speed silicon detectors, which can easily time resolve PWM signals and thus give measurement errors.

For more information about this or other light sources and instrumentation Gamma Scientific manufacture, please contact us.

New products from Gamma Scientific are deLUXe

rs7-1-1000The recently introduced SpectralLED™ tunable light source from Gamma Scientific combines the light of dozens of discrete LEDs – each having a different centre wavelength – to produce output that can be programmed to closely match virtually any illuminant source or the spectrum of any illuminant reflected by a target.

Now new SpectralLED™ models are available with either fibre-optic outputs for awkward to reach places requiring illumination, or as a 1 m integrating sphere system offering ultra-uniform output from a 300 mm diameter port.

Tomorrow and Wednesday, visit Elliot Scientific at SPIE Astronomical Telescopes + Instrumentation in Edinburgh

sky-night-space-galaxyFor only two days during the prestigious SPIE Astronomical Telescopes + Instrumentation conference in Edinburgh, will developers and users of telescopes and instrumentation be able to visit our stand at the event’s exhibition. Elliot Scientific is featuring products from leading companies such as Energetiq Technology, Gamma ScientificLake Shore Cryotronics and Vescent Photonics.

EQ99XFC_SQFrom tomorrow, our team will be on hand to discuss how the technologies available through Elliot Scientific can help deliver measurement solutions for the problems scientists encounter involving light, magnetic fields, or cryogenic temperatures. We will also be demonstrating two novel light sources – a revolutionary broadband ultra-bright plasma-based lamp and a new tunable LED system that can be programmed to mimic virtually any illuminant or reflected spectrum, plus spectroscopy and laser modules, and more.

The SPIE Astronomical Telescopes + Instrumentation Exhibition take places at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 28th & 29th. For more information, please contact us.

New SpectralLED Tunable LED Light Source from Gamma Scientific

The new SpectralLED™ tunable light source from Gamma Scientific combines the output of 30 discrete LEDs – each having a different centre wavelength – to produce output that can be programmed to closely match virtually any illuminant source or the spectrum of any illuminant reflected by a target.

SpectralLED™ can sweep through wavelengths to simulate a scanning monochromator, but with the advantage of no moving parts. In addition to superior spectral resolution and accuracy, the SpectralLED™ also offers about 10x higher brightness than any competitive product. This allows measurements over a much larger, linear dynamic range, and is sufficient to illuminate virtually any detector at levels up to saturation.

A combination of DC constant current drivers, optical feedback, and thermoelectric cooling maintains the source’s high luminance accuracy in real time, allowing brightness to be varied directly (through drive current), rather than by pulse width modulation (PWM). This eliminates any flicker.

SpectralLED-Transparent-Trimetric-Rendering-Final-500x500The SpectralLED™ will allow sensor, camera and system manufacturers to perform a wide variety of calibration and testing functions with a single instrument. Applications include smartphones and tablets, DSLR cameras, cinematography camcorders, diagnostic medical imaging, technical and industrial photography, or any OEM camera, sensor or detector application. White balance, spatial uniformity, defects, linearity, dynamic range, signal-to-noise, responsivity and ISO speed are specific tests the SpectralLED™ is ideally suited for carrying out.
