OL 490 Agile Light Source

Product Description:

The OL 490 Agile Light Source delivers an unprecedented level of flexibility and power providing high speed programmable spectral illumination. It utilizes Texas Instruments' innovative Digital Light Processor (DLP) technology to offer a programmable and variable high intensity and high resolution spectral output. The OL 490 produces high resolution spectra via a flexible liquid light guide. High speed USB interface and easy to use software controls allow synthesis of complex optical filter systems and rapid spectral rates up to 10 kHz. The OL 490 is also available in the NIR wavelength range.

The OL 490 design is based on intellectual property embodied in US patent 6,128,078 Fatelet et al, filed February 11, 2000, issued on October 3, 2000. 

Gooch & Housego has licensed this patent.
