Our line of cleverly designed light sources covers the entire UV-NIR wavelength range and combines innovation with reliability to give you serious performance and precision. These low-cost, modular light sources feature SMA 905 connectors for quick and easy connection. From design features like built-in filter slots to optional accessories such as direct-attach cuvette holders, nothing is more convenient and simple to use than Ocean Optics light sources.
Sources 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 fast, reliable spectrometer wavelength calibrations, we offer a range of options. Design features such as built-in filter slots, combined with optional accessories such as direct-attach cuvette holders, make sampling simple.
Modular Light source Options
UV Light Sources
We offer deuterium sources for UV absorbance and reflectance measurements. Our pulsed xenon lamps are long-life sources for absorbance, reflectance and fluorescence measurements, and for measuring optically or thermally labile samples.
Combination Deuterium and Tungsten Light Sources
Used as single illumination sources for UV-NIR measurements.
VIS-Mid-IR Light Sources
Tungsten halogen sources are standard VIS-NIR light sources for absorbance, reflectance of solid objects, and color measurement. Our Cool Red source has response into the mid-IR.
Used as excitation sources for fluorescence. Feature minimal warm-up and high stability. Power is lower and spectral width is wider than with lasers. We offer a full range of options for UV-NIR. LEDs are available individually and with rugged housings.
Radiometrically Calibrated Light Sources
Used to calibrate the absolute spectral intensity of a system in irradiance applications.
Wavelength Calibration Sources
Used to calibrate the wavelength of spectrophotometric systems. We offer a full range of options for your UV-VIS needs.
