LED and broadband light sources

LED and broadband light sources are used in molecular analysis, cell research, industrial imaging, forensics, color measurement and patient care. Unlike conventional light sources, LEDs have extremely long lifetimes.
Broadband IR sources, on the other hand, include thermal emitters, gas discharge lamps, and infrared LEDs. Terahertz radiation lies in the electromagnetic spectrum between infrared radiation and microwaves. This radiation penetrates many materials such as paper or plastic as well as organic tissue and is therefore suitable for applications in spectroscopy, non-destructive materials testing and security technology.


The FIR-/THz lasers are optically pumped lasers used in applications where coherent radiation in the range of 40 μm to 1.22 mm (0.25 –7.5 THz) is required.

The SL1 Fiber Optic Light Source for VIS - NIR applications allows one sample per fiber to be illuminated.

The pE-100 series is a mercury-free family of compact and simple to use fluorescence LED illumination systems which can be configured to deliver light directly to a microscope, or via a liquid light guide or multimode fiber.

The pE-2 is a fluorescence LED illumination system which provides repeatable and controllable light with a choice of 20 different LED peaks.

The pE-300lite is a simple white light LED illumination unit. It provides a broad spectrum of illumination, covering the excitation bands of common fluorescent stains.
CoolLED’s pE-300ultra is a fluorescence microscopy light source which offers intense, broad-spectrum LED illumination for imaging most common fluorescent stains.
