NEWBURYPORT, Mass., Jan. 3, 2013 — Gigahertz-Optik Inc.’s ISS-8P-HP integrating sphere light source features uniformity equal to or better than 98% within 90% of its output port, featuring a fast high-medium-low (H-M-L) setting of intensity level using interchangeable attenuators. The quick three-setting adjustment of light level is desirable in production comparison applications.
The calibration light source standard is used for photoresponse nonuniformity comparison of imaging systems and sensors. It is built around an 8-cm-diameter integrating sphere made from the company’s highly diffuse-reflective and stable synthetic ODM98 coating with a 19-mm-diameter light output port.
Its light source design offers selectable 10- to 100-W quartz halogen lamps and features three manually interchangeable neutral density filters with OD0, OD1 and OD2 optical densities corresponding to 100%, 10% and 1% light throughput for fast H-M-L adjustment of light output. The company says that this method is faster than using a variable aperture, and the hole-pattern design attenuator minimizes color temperature drift. A fan is supplied to air-cool the lamp socket to ensure lamp life and system stability.
Optional accessories include the proprietary LPS series high-resolution lamp power supply, and an optometer with an illuminance, luminance or illuminance and color monitor detector.
