New Broadband Visible Light Source Produces Balanced Output
BluLoop Light Source from Ocean Optics is ideal for color applications
Dunedin, FL (February 29, 2012) – 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 fibers and sampling accessories, BluLoop is ideal for color and reflectance measurements and general-purpose VIS-NIR spectroscopy.
BluLoop’s four LEDs are packaged in a rugged, small-footprint housing. Unlike tungsten halogen sources, BluLoop produces “flatter” spectral output in the visible range for more predictable response, especially for color 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.
