Gamma Scientific to Showcase Comprehensive Line of Integrating Spheres

14 October 2011

SAN DIEGO, October 14, 2011- Gamma Scientific, a pioneer in light measurement solutions, will be showcasing their line of integrating spheres at the upcoming LEDs conference in San Diego, California from October 24th-26th . Since 1961, Gamma Scientific has used its expertise to offer the world's most comprehensive selection of instrumentation for optical radiation measurement. Gamma Scientific products are distinguished by their value, providing unmatched design and quality at competitive prices.

Integrating Sphere Technology and ApplicationsGamma Radoma
The integrating sphere is a fundamental optical technology, commonly used in photometry and radiometry, for applications including the test and measurement of light sources (lamps, LEDs, lasers, fiber-optic illuminators), sensors (focal-plane arrays, spectrometers, and camera systems), and material properties (reflectance and transmittance).

Though specific attributes vary with application, an integrating sphere is generally used to perform the following functions: collection of light - from some type of source; spatial averaging (homogenization); illumination - of a sensor or specimen.

Selecting a Sphere Solution
Gamma 1.5 Integrated SphereGamma Scientific offers a wide range of integrating spheres, as well as complete, pre-configured sphere systems to meet diverse test and measurement requirements. Integrating spheres are available in sizes from 25 mm to 2 m in diameter, with designs optimized for led test and measurement, laser power measurement, fiber-optic testing, photometry and radiometry. Specialized and custom configurations are also available. Popular systems include:

Gamma Scientific has also developed a sphere selection chart that provides an overview of the standard integrating sphere components used to assemble these systems, and a preliminary guide to combining spheres with sensors and other components to create a complete, application-specific measurement system.

About Gamma Scientific:
Gamma Scientific, established in 1961, manufactures the world's most comprehensive selection of light measurement instruments backed by the industry's most knowledgeable support team. Products include spectroradiometers, photometers and radiometers, colorimeters, NIST traceable optical radiation standards and custom-configured instruments for applications.
