We call multicolor light sources those light sources that cover a wide range of the wavelength spectrum (usually in the visible, but also in the UV or near IR) but its emission bandwidth can be reduced to only a few nanometers. There are different techniques to implement multicolor light sources and Iberoptics wants to introduce two very different ones:
a) Niji: multi-channel LED light source for fluorescence microscopy (Bluebox Optics): multi-channel LED light source with 7+1 UV-VIS-NIR channels, compatible with the best-known microscope brands (Nikon, Leica, Olympus, Zeiss). The BBO-Niji light source from Bluebox Optics integrates several LED light channels in a single frame, with a single output but that can be controlled independently (ON/OFF and power). Its modular design and price make it affordable for almost any application
REPLACE YOUR OLD GAS LAMP WITH NIJI MULTICANAL LED SOURCE!
Applications: any fluorescence microscopy (live cell imaging, optogenetics ...)
b) Hyperchromator: tunable light source (plasma light source + monochromator): monochromator coupled to a plasma source with ultra-broad emission pumped by laser. Emission from 190 nm to 2500 nm with a spectral bandwidth between 1-10 nm (FWHM) and up to 500 μW of output power in 6 nm bandwidth and 400 μm fiber output.
Applications: any type of light spectroscopy
