Gamma Scientific has just announced the release of their RS‐7 IRIS option that allows easy adjustment of the light source’s output intensity.
This new enhancement for the SpectralLED® family of uniform intensity tunable light sources considerably increases the dynamic range of the light source. It is particularly useful for irradiance testing and characterisation of bare sensors.
The stepper motor controlled iris provides a variable output aperture which is fully integrated into the light source architecture. Available for both the visible and SWIR output models, the standard RS‐7 firmware includes aperture control and additional API commands.
About the SpectralLED®
The RS‐7 base platform incorporates the latest LED technology available. The RS‐7 VIS series contains 35 discrete wavelength LEDs, delivering a nearly continuous spectrum from 380 to 1000 nm. This allows for an unprecedented colour gamut and applications otherwise impossible for traditional halogen or LED light sources.
The SpectralLED® SWIR series employs LEDs at 9 discrete wavelengths from 900 to 1700 nm in the short‐wave infrared portion of the spectrum, providing a fully programmable spectra with highly uniform and stable output.
The standard configuration incorporates a controller and all software for full spectral calibration with spectral fitting, preset storage and real‐time optical feedback in a variety of measurement units.
USB drivers for Windows, OSX and Linux platforms are included, and external interface and control can be easily achieved via simple ASCII commands. Custom configurations are also available.

The RS-7-SWIR incorporates 9 shortwave infrared wavelengths for synthesis of commercially available light sources or a spectra of your own design.
The platform is easily adaptable for automated test systems and production line integration, with integrated optical feedback and temperature control to ensure rock-solid stability and consistent results.

With the introduction of a 2 µm optical coating, Micro Laser Systems (µLS) have significantly broadened the available wavelengths their standard FC laser collimators can operate in. µLS can now offer collimators in four wavebands that cover the 350 to 2300 nm spectral range.
Designed specifically for single mode fibre, polarisation maintaining fibre, and fibre laser applications requiring a pure Gaussian beam, the µLS FC collimators deliver a very clean output with no diffraction patterns or beam distortions from apertures up to 45 mm in diameter.
Micro Laser Systems’ FC Series collimators can be used with any commercially available fibre-coupled laser, including Ar, YAG, TiS, HeNe, or DPSS systems.
