Innovative LED High Power Light Source for UV

22.06.2017

The successful „LedHUB“ LED light engine produced by Laser- and LED specialist Omicron is now available down to 340nm

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 many different wavelengths between 340nm in the UV up to 940nm in the near IR 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 individual application requirements and is future-proof.


"LedHUB LED Engine" from Omicron now available with 340nm

With a direct and active temperature control of the LED chips it is 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 within the "LedHUB" by special optics and can be coupled efficiently into quartz glass fibres or liquid light guides.

LEDs with up to 5.000 milliwatt of optical output power 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.

Especially for microscopic applications like Calcium imaging with FURA-2 fluorophores, that require rapid toggling at 340nm and 385nm, the LedHUB is an ideal alternative to lamp based Monochromators or sources with slow filter wheels.

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, fluorescence analysis and the use as multispectral light source in forensics.

The "LedHUB LED light engines" are offered with a manufacturer's warranty of three years.

Omicron will present its latest products during „Laser World of Photonics 2017“ exhibition in Munich from June 26th to 29th, 2017.

Im Focus: BAM@Hannover Messe: innovative 3D printing method for space flight

At the Hannover Messe 2018, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und-prüfung (BAM) will show how, in the future, astronauts could produce their own tools or spare parts in zero gravity using 3D printing. This will reduce, weight and transport costs for space missions. Visitors can experience the innovative additive manufacturing process live at the fair.

Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity is the name of the project in which a component is produced by applying metallic powder layers and then...

Im Focus: Molecules Brilliantly Illuminated

Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.

Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
