New Broadband Visible Light Source Produces Balanced Output
BluLoop Light Source from Ocean Optics is ideal for colour applications
Ocean Optics’ BluLoop Light Source is a compact, LED-based source with balanced spectral output across the visible (400-700 nm) range. When coupled to a miniature spectrometer, optical fibres and sampling accessories, BluLoop is ideal for colour and reflectance measurements and general-purpose VIS-NIR spectroscopy.
BluLoop’s four LEDs are packaged in a rugged, small-footprint housing. Each LED is individually tunable for optimum balancing of the spectral output. Unlike tungsten halogen sources, BluLoop produces “flatter” spectral output in the visible range for more predictable response, especially for colour analysis. In addition, BluLoop provides a more constant spectral distribution and strongly reduced instrumental stray light. Its power output is comparable to standard tungsten halogen sources.
