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.

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 High Brightness Tunable Broadband Light Source

Energetiq‘s new Laser-Driven Tunable Light Source (LDTLS™) is a compact, fully integrated and highly stable tunable broadband light source based on their proven Laser-Driven Light Source (LDLS™) technology. The LDTLS™ utilises the EQ-77 LDLS™ source and features the highest brightness and output flux available in a tunable broadband product.

The water-cooled LDTLS™ offers an extremely long lifetime (approximately 9000 hours between bulb changes) for low cost of ownership. It has high stability, very low noise, and is coupled with a precision high-performance monochromator for accurate wavelength selection and repeatable light output across the range of 300 to 1100 nm.

The spectral resolution can be customised for application specific purposes and ranges in bandwidth from 1 to 10 nm. The fibre coupled output is both flexible and convenient for delivering wavelength selected light to precisely where it is needed. OEMs, please contact us for more information.

New DuaLED Light Engine for UV-Visible from Prizmatix

Prizmatix’s self-contained UHP-M is an ultra-high power UV-Visible light source designed to replace Metal-Halide and Mercury lamp systems in many microscopy and fluorescence applications.

Incorporating two independently controllable Prizmatix large-chip LEDs, the UHP-M delivers broadband white from a single 55 W LED, and high power UV from a single 10 W LED operating at 365, 385 or 405 nm depending on model ordered. The UHP-M offers:

  • Optically isolated TTL & analogue inputs for each channel
  • Fast TTL switching
  • Low optical noise
  • Long life (no lamp replacement)
  • Fanless operation
  • Remote control*
  • USB interface*
