Bring Thermal Infrared Light Source Directly to your Sample Using an Optical Fiber

Infrared light or infrared radiation sources are used in a variety of applications and measurements. Compared to other light sources, high-temperature IR light sources are relatively cheap and only require simple electronics, yet they emit high-power light that is stable and reliable. However, the warm emitter causes light that is incoherent and emitted in all directions, making it difficult to guide and focus the light onto a high-intensity sample.

NLIR’s fiber-coupled infrared light source makes it easy to bring mid-infrared light to a sample. To achieve this, position the fiber tip close to the sample or use one of the many commonly available fiber probes. The light source is plug-and-play, turns on in a few seconds, and is actively cooled so that no parts are too warm to touch.
