Measuring Diffuse Reflectance

How much light is scattering off of that? Most objects scatter light in all directions. How can we catch it all?

Integrating Spheres, Pulse Stretching & Asymmetry

One of the really useful features of integrating spheres is that they can have multiple detector ports. Thus, more than one detector can be attached to make different measurements in parallel. As for all measuring devices, we need to understand the nature of the device because it can affect the measurement results.

Fighting Viruses with UV-C LED: Will All the Research Soon Pay Off?

The world remains in a continuing state of uncertainty due to the new COVID-19 coronavirus. Face masks and disinfectants are selling very well. Disinfection with UV light could offer a way of disinfecting larger areas without the use of chemical disinfectants, especially in hospitals where patients are being treated.

New Innovations for Integrating Spheres

Integrating spheres have been around for decades, many decades. They are the go to solution for measuring divergent light sources. After such a long history, what could be new in integrating spheres? Well, new applications often demand new refinements in veteran technology and integrating spheres are no different. VCSELs, LEDs and other present day light sources…

Integrating Spheres for Lighting and Laser Diode Measurement

An integrating sphere is a powerful tool to capture all the light of a widely divergent beam. The sphere scatters light uniformly over its whole interior.

Don’t Come to Our LASER World of PHOTONICS Booth Unless…

Going to Munich for LASER World of PHOTONICS 2015?

We’ll be showing several new products in Munich, not to mention quite a few of our classics.

But…

You’re going to be busy. You can’t (and shouldn’t) go to every booth. So I’m going to very clear. Our booth is not for everyone. However,

Worried about High Power (10 kW) Laser Backscatter?

With high power lasers, there’s always a safety concern for equipment and people nearby.

(Of course, I’m not qualified to give a detailed analysis of what needs to be taken into account for laser safety. For that, you should consult a laser safety officer.)

I want to specifically ask whether there’s an issue of laser light reflecting off power measuring equipment.
