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.

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.
How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.
It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
