Pulsed Laser and LED Light Sources

Innovative and affordable pulsed light source for lifetime fluorescence down to 70 ps

The NanoLED range is a novel and economical light source system that utilizes pulsed laser diode and LED technology to generate short optical pulses over a wide range of repetition rates and wavelengths.  Optical pulses as short as 70ps can be generated at repetition rates up to 1MHz.

Segment: Scientific
Division: Fluorescence
Base product
Manufacturing Company: HORIBA Scientific

The NanoLED package consists of a NanoLED controller and a range of interchangeable NanoLED, pulsed LED sources, each designed to be used over a specific wavelength range. Pulsed LED sources generate nanosecond pulses, while pulsed laser diodes sources generate picosecond pulses. 

Each NanoLED source contains adjustable collection optics and a bayonet mounting flange to make incorporation into any optical system easy. Dedicated drive electronics in each NanoLED source means that plug-n-play operation is possible across the NanoLED range. A synchronisation output allows straightforward triggering of your existing data acquisition electronics.

HORIBA Scientific now offers a choice of two NanoLED controllers. The NanoLED-C2 is the bench-top module for stand-alone operation, and the FluoroHub-NL is our software controlled plug-in accessory card designed for use with the FluoroHub controller module.

Applications include:

  • TCSPC excitation source
  • Fluorescence spectroscopy
  • Detector response testing
  • DNA sequencing
  • Biomedical screening
  • Replacement of mode-locked laser and flashlamps in low cost or portable applications

Features

  • Interchangeable NanoLED heads – “plug-and-play” operation even between LED and laser heads
  • Clean pulse profiles
  • Gold plated casing for minimized electromagnetic emission
  • Selectable NIM or TTL synchronization output
  • Sync delay control allows quick adjustment of sync output relative to optical pulse (up to 200ns)

    Accessories

    Bandpass filters are available at most wavelengths.

    Note - Pulse width refers to optical pulse duration; in TCSPC the prompt FWHM is also a function of detector TTS. The values given are for guidance only and the exact characteristics are dependent on the individual diode.

    Additional Features:

    • Linearly polarised emission – polarisation angle continually variable.
