Proven filter technology to underpin compact LED multiplexing module
SANTA ROSA, Calif., Jan. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Bookham, Inc. (Nasdaq: BKHM), a leading provider of optical components for industrial applications, is to enter the biomedical market with its ZoroLight(TM) LED multiplexing technology. The compact LED combining module, which utilizes proprietary Bookham filter technology, is designed for bio-analytical applications and medical instrumentation. The ZoroLight LED module will be on show at the Bookham booth (#8636) at the BiOS exhibition, taking place 19-20 January at the San Jose Convention Center.
The device offers significant brightness, efficiency and size advantages over the traditional approach to LED combining methods. Rather than using lenses to capture light in free space, the ZoroLight LED module traps light in a tunnel of highly-reflective dielectric coated surfaces that are geometry optimized for efficient source light collection and filter performance. Patent applications have been filed on the innovative design.
"The ZoroLight LED module offers manufacturers of healthcare, pharmaceutical and diagnostics technologies a compact and cost-efficient LED illumination solution based on proven Bookham filter technology that is well-established for precision optical filter OEM applications in the instrumentation and telecommunications industries," said Santa Rosa-based Product Line Manager, Ben Standish. "To meet the diverse and specific needs of these manufacturers, the ZoroLight LED module is customizable for OEM applications, accommodating multiple wavelengths and meeting different intensity and size requirements.
"The use of LEDs is attractive in fluorescence applications due to
