With the new „LedHUB“ LED light engine, laser- and LED specialist Omicron provides more flexibility in the world of Microscopy and Biotechnology.
Omicron‘s innovative „LedHUB LED Light Engine“ represents a new form of LED light source for science and research.
The high-performance system can be equipped with one to six LED modules of different wavelengths from UV to the near IR range and offers fast analogue intensity modulation with up to 200KHz and digital modulation with a switching time of <2µs for each channel. The individual LED modules can easily be exchanged and added by the user. Hence the system can be adapted to changing application requirements and is future-proof.
With a direct and active temperature control of the LED chips it is now possible to keep the power level and the emission spectra of the LED chips stable. This feature guarantees reliable and repeatable results in the customer‘s applications.
The light of the various high power LEDs is combined in the "LedHUB" with special optics and can be coupled efficiently into quartz glass fibre or liquid light guides.
LEDs with up to 5.000 milliwatt of optical output power and wavelengths between 365 and 850nm can be used in the "LedHUB" systems. Through directly accessible filter holders, that can be equipped with 25mm standard filters, the emission of each single LED may additionally be adapted to the application.
The modulation is possible via external modulation signals as well as by an internal programmable signal generator. A SYNC in- and output ensures the synchronization of / from external devices like cameras, microscopes or DAC cards.
The device can be conveniently controlled via the integrated RS-232 and USB-2.0 interface, the included software „Omicron Control Center“ or third party software. Typical applications include microscopy, flourescence analysis and the use as multispectral light source in forensics.
The new "LedHUB LED light engines" are offered with a manufacturer's warranty of three years and are now available.

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
