Gamma Scientific offers solutions for the testing and calibration of cameras and optical sensing systems, ranging from monolithic sensors to sensor arrays and scientific imaging systems. Solutions for most camera calibration and sensor test applications can be assembled from our selection of LED light source components.
Gamma Scientific’s LED light sources offer the finest and most versatile controlled light energy technology available. LED Light Sources combine LEDs with linear programmable drive circuitry and active optical feedback to provide precisely controllable, programmable light output. Eigenlite™ Digital Uniform Light Sources exhibit excellent linearity, repeatability, and long-term stability.
Camera Calibration and Optical Sensor Testing Applications
Our Digital LED light source systems can be used to test or to calibrate optical sensors and sensing systems.
- Simple (Monolithic) Sensors
- Sensor Arrays: CMOS, CCD, Diode-Array
- Imaging Systems: Cameras, Telescopes, Microscopes
Digital Light Sources are typically coupled to the device under test by some type of uniform illumination optics. One of two broad types of illuminator may be chosen, depending on the type of device
- Device under test: Simple Sensor or Sensor Array
- Illuminator Type: Projection Tube
- Units of Calibration: Illuminance (lumen/m2) or Irradiance (W/m2)
- Device under test: Imaging System
- Illuminator Type: Integrating Sphere
- Units of Calibration: Luminance (cd/m2) or Radiance (W/cm2sr)
Gamma Scientific LED Light Sources for Camera Calibration
Provides a versatile way to test and characterize CCD, CMOS, and other image sensors, cameras, and detectors. Together with a range of projector options, the system delivers near perfect linearity and uniformity, giving the sensor or camera engineer and manufacturer an unparalleled foundation with which to verify the quality and consistency of their components and products.
As cockpit display backlights change from tungsten and fluorescent to solid-state LED’s, so too must the calibration light source for the compliance test equipment to maintain the lowest uncertainty measurements possible. The RS-5NVIS digital light source provides a versatile way to test and calibration ANVIS radiometers and spectroradiometers.
The Eigenlite RS-5A linear programmable digital uniform light aource provides a versatile way to test and characterize CCD, CMOS, and other image sensors, cameras and detectors. The RS-5A is a larger aperture, higher power version of the original RS-5 digital uniform light source. When an RS-5A is combined with one of our wide range of projector options, it becomes another extraodinary instrument for photometric and radiometric calibration.
The Eigenlite RS-5 linear programmable digital uniform light source provides a versatile way to test and characterize CCD, CMOS, and other image sensors, cameras and detectors. When combined with one of our wide range of projector options, it becomes the ultimate instrument for photometric and radiometric calibration; delivering near perfect linearity and uniformity – giving the sensor or camera engineer/manufacturer an unparalleled foundation with which to calibrate and verify the quality and consistency of their imaging components and products.
The Eigenlite RS-5H high power spectrally programmable digital uniform light source provides a versatile way to characterize the linearity and sensitivity of CCD and CMOS cameras, components and sensors. The system delivers near perfect linearity and uniformity, giving the camera or sensor manufacturer, image systems or light-source designer, an unparalleled foundation with which to verify the quality and consistency of the products they purchase or design in-house.
Eigenfield illuminator systems have been designed and optimized for use with Gamma Scientific Digital Light Source products. They include both sphere, axial, and hybrid projector systems, and incorporate the latest technology and designs in optical mixing, diffusion, and uniform light projection. When coupled with a Gamma Scientific RS-5, RS-5A, or RS-5B Digital Light Source, Eigenfield illuminators meet even the most demanding illumination uniformity and stability requirements.
