Bring Thermal Infrared Light Source Directly to your Optical Fiber Sample
A wide variety of applications and measurements use a thermal infrared light source or infrared radiation. Compared to other light sources, high-temperature IR light sources are relatively cheap and only require simple electronics. 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 a commonly sold fiber-probe. 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.
