New high output tuneable light source… The Hyperchromator

An efficient monochromator utilising the high-brightness Energetiq EQ-99X LDLS Laser Driven Light Source (right) has been developed by Mountain Photonics, and was recently demonstrated on our booth at Photonics West.

The Hyperchromator uses an off-axis parabolic mirror to focus the broadband light generated by the small plasma spot of the LDLS™ directly onto a diffraction grating, and then off a second mirror to an exit port.

As no entrance slit is used, the optical efficiency of the system is very high – typically f/1.5 or f/2, depending on the required resolution or throughput. A white light bypass output is also available.

The output port has been designed to allow for a multitude of illumination or light coupling options. By using standard catalogue components, the Hyperchromator can be easily integrated into an application.

The Hyperchromator is controlled via USB/RS-232 and an intuitive GUI, with LabVIEW™ and other software libraries supported.

Existing owners of an Energetiq EQ-99X LDLS™ can add tuneability by purchasing the Hyperchromator unit alone.

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.
