Characterization of Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) and Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) by UV-Visible Spectrophotometry
Author: C. Mark Talbott, Ph.D., Robert H. Clifford, Ph.D.
Wednesday, October 10, 2012

The acceptance and commercial utilization of Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) and, more recently, Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) have grown significantly in the past five years, leading to increased research. This paper demonstrates the use of a typical laboratory UV-Vis spectrophotometer to measure and characterize CFL and LED lamps, focusing on spectral characteristics such as peak wavelength, Full Width at Half Maximum, centroid wavelength, dominant wavelength, color, and color purity.

Ultra-Narrowband Optical Bandpass Filters with Large Format and Improved Temperature Stability
Hard coated ultra-narrowband optical filters made using modern plasma processes offer much improved transmission, temperature stability and out of band blocking as compared to legacy soft coatings. These filters are used in optical systems as diverse as LIDAR (light detection and ranging), Doppler shift detection of plasma velocity, laser cleanup, chemical and gas sensing, as well as for cutting-edge astronomy and instrumentation applications.

Time-Lapse Imaging with Lamp and LED – Stability vs Repeatability
Advancements in LED technology today enable LEDs to provide a compelling alternative to lamps for fluorescence microscopy illumination and have become increasingly popular. This article discusses the differences in stability between Lamps and LEDs, and explains the importance of repeatability versus stability when comparing images taken between time points, whether this is within the same short experiment or a longer time-lapse experiment.
