Light Sources Light SourcesSources for Illumination, Excitation and Calibration The development of Ocean Optics miniature spectrometers created the need for comparably sized and priced accessories, including light sources. Since no such sources existed, we developed our own -- compact, modular sources for illumination, excitation and calibration. Our light sources for illumination cover various wavelength ranges to enable absorbance, transmission and reflectance measurements from the deep UV to the mid-IR. Light-emitting diodes produce output for fluorescence measurements. For...

T ools For Manipulating Light Modifying Light Light Sources Light Sources Ocean Optics products give you countless options for modifying the light transmitted to your spectrometer’s detector. Depending on your application needs, we provide a number of methods for changing the way light interacts with your configuration. For high-intensity applications such as laser characterization, steps must be taken to avoid detector saturation. In other cases, changing the fiber size or adding mirrors to your spectrometer bench may increase light collection efficiency. Entrance Aperture: Slit An...

Cool RedInfrared Light Source The Cool Red works beautifully as a complement to mid-infrared analyzers or in any spectroscopy application where high-intensity infrared light is required. Cool Red is especially useful for applications in the region from 1000-5000 nm. For systems that require optical modulation, an integrated optical shutter can be modulated at frequencies of up to 200 Hz. The shutter can be driven externally through a 15-pin digital interface. If no external drive is available, the shutter can be driven internally by an integrated adjustable square wave generator. Frequency...
