Liquid light guides are a more efficient transmission solution than fiber bundles as they eliminate the packing fraction loss (dead space) that fiber bundles have. Liquid Light Guides also provide flexible and convenient conduits for light delivery to fluorescence microscopes and other bioanalytical instruments. In addition to isolating the microscope from any heat and vibration associated with the light source, passage through a light guide acts to randomize spatial inhomogeneity in the light source output.
High Output Fiber Optic Light Guides
High power fiber light guides provide a high output linear beam of UV curing energy. They have several features and benefits.
