Tunable Optical Components
Tunable Optical Components for Wavelength Selection and Laser Pulse Shaping
PerkinElmer Life Sciences offers an award-winning portfolio of solid-state Liquid Crystal Tunable Filters (LCTFs) and linear-array Spatial Light Modulators (SLMs) for researchers and engineers in need of robust no-moving-parts multispectral/hyperspectral imaging and laser modulation solutions. All components feature superior optical quality and the Cambridge Research & Instrumentation, Inc. (CRi) 25-year reputation for excellence in design, manufacturing, and intuitive operation.
VariSpec™ filters digitally tune through the VIS or NIR spectrum for precise wavelength selection for your imaging and even non-imaging applications. Micro*Color™ & Macro*Color™ filters create exquisite color images from your high-resolution grayscale camera. Thousands of our solid-state liquid crystal tunable filters (LCTFs) have been sold for biomedical imaging, industrial metrology, forensics, remote sensing, and historical document imaging. SLMs enable ultrafast femtosecond laser pulse-shaping by modulating amplitude and/or phase in your experiments. Choose from 12-bit 128- or 640-pixel optical masks, and phase, amplitude, or simultaneous phase & amplitude control.
Liquid Crystal (LC) technology is not only used in our own Nuance™ EX, Nuance™ FX, TRIO™, Vectra™ , and Maestro™ imaging systems, but also in thousands of other instruments distributed by our OEM partners in other industries.
