NORTH SUTTON, N.H., Feb. 14, 2008 -- For calibration of cameras, displays, remote sensing devices, telespectroradiometers and imaging radiometers, Labsphere’s USS-800 series uniform source systems provide application flexibility and upgrade potential. Available in continuous (USS-800C) or stepped (USS-800S) output models, Labsphere’s systems perform responsivity characterization in research, quality control and process engineering settings.

USS800.jpgSystems are built on an 8-in.-diameter integrating sphere coated with Labsphere’s proprietary Spectraflect. This highly reflective diffuse coating delivers over 98-percent spatial integration. The 2-in. exit port is suitable for most portable imaging systems and arrays, with optional Spectraflect coated accessories to reduce port size as dictated by the application. A wide variety of light sources offer several levels of radiance performance; current regulated DC power supply ensures lamp consistency for reproducible results. Exit port luminance is controlled and monitored with Labsphere’s SC 6000 radiometer. USS-800 systems’ calibrations are traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

The fixed radiance output of the USS-800S is ideal for uniform illumination of devices under test or to source a nonimaging optical train, with stepped radiance outputs of 70500, 31000 or 3000 cd/m2. For greater flexibility, the USS-800C provides adjustable continuous spectral radiance and irradiance with luminance levels ranging from 0 to 9800, 13500 or 24,000 cd/m2. This configuration is most often used to characterize the linearity of nonimaging (charge-coupled device array) and imaging (camera) systems.

Labsphere’s engineering staff is available to assist in selecting system models and components.

GLOSSARY
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
