Fibre-optic option

Gamma Scientific's RS-7 SpectralLED™ Tunable LED Light Source 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.

Gamma Scientific, in conjunction with Laser Focus World magazine, are delivering an exciting Webinar presentation tomorrow that will provide in-depth product information, typical applications, and visual demonstrations of the flexible software and production interface capabilities that give the SpectralLED so many advantages over traditional halogen and other LED light sources.

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.

Typical programmed SpectralLED™ output profiles:

  • Blackbody
  • Daylight
  • Fluorescent
  • LED & CIE

Lake Shore's temperature sensor data is now online

ROX temperature sensors
Platinum temperature sensors

Lake Shore is now offering all their temperature sensor information in one convenient online page. The new Sensors' page contains links to:

  • Datasheets
  • Installation instructions
  • Application notes
  • Catalogue pages

Lake Shore logoOver the coming months, Lake Shore will migrate away from shipping calibration data CDs with calibrated sensors and will instead only offer this data via a portal accessible from the new page.

Data is currently available online for sensors shipped since the beginning of 2016, so if an existing CD is lost or damaged, the calibration data can be quickly downloaded providing you have the serial number of the relevant sensor on hand. Alternatively, contact Lake Shore Service for archived curves.

A diffraction limited circular beam is a µLS priority

Micro Laser Systems Laser Diodes

Micro Laser Systems (µLS) manufacture diode laser modules and instruments with an emphasis on optical packaging to provide diffraction limited, circular beams with low wavefront error and low divergence. Options allow for large collimated beams or sub-micron focused spots.

Among the products µLS offer are:

  • Fibre-coupled lasers
  • Wavelengths up to 1600 nm
  • High performance diode lasers
  • Fibre collimators & focusers
  • Multimode fibre Receiver/Collector
  • Free space lasers

Micro Laser Systems also produce diode laser drivers and TEC controllers in both bench-top and OEM versions so do please contact us for more details.

Elliot Scientific will be exhibiting at these forthcoming events...
