New Broadband Visible Light Source Produces Balanced Output
BluLoop Light Source from Ocean Optics is ideal for color applications
February 29, 2012
Dunedin, FL (February 29, 2012) – Ocean Optics’ BluLoop Light Source is a compact, LED-based source with balanced
spectral output across the visible (400-700 nm) range. When coupled to a miniature spectrometer, optical fibers and sampling
accessories, BluLoop is ideal for color and reflectance measurements and general-purpose VIS-NIR spectroscopy.
BluLoop’s four LEDs are packaged in a rugged, small-footprint housing. Each LED is individually tunable for optimum balancing of
the spectral output. Unlike tungsten halogen sources, BluLoop produces “flatter” spectral output in the visible range for more
predictable response, especially for color analysis. In addition, BluLoop provides a more constant spectral distribution and
strongly reduced instrumental stray light. Its power output is comparable to standard tungsten halogen sources.
