Custom LED-based Calibration Sources from FTO

A calibration source from FiberTech Optica (FTO) emits broadband light from a proprietary, actively-cooled multiple LED module, making generation of complex user-specified spectral output profiles possible. The system provides excellent output beam uniformity in both near- and far-field through the use of an integrating sphere and fiber coupling. This enables spectrally weighted calibration across the … Continue reading
