Optical Building Blocks (OBB) Pioneers Milestone In High Intensity Tunable Illuminators

(Birmingham, NJ) – October 20, 2011

Optical Building Blocks Corporation (OBB) announces the introduction of the Tunable KiloArc™ High Intensity Illuminator. The Tunable KiloArc™ delivers 100 mW of optical power anywhere from 300 nm to 1,100 nm.

This self contained and self aligned illuminator requires no special cooling and can easily fit on a simple lab bench. The output wavelength can be manually set or it can be controlled with an optional stepper motor and 3rd party software driver. The spectral bandwidth can be continuously adjusted from 0.25 to 30 nm.

The Tunable KiloArc™ is ideal for research or OEM applications in Solar and Photovoltaics (PV) as well as a wide variety of spectroscopic applications where the ultimate in tunable light intensity is required.

Optical Building Blocks Corporation (OBB) is built on 34 years of pioneering industry experience in Electro-optical instrumentation. OBB designs, manufactures and markets proprietary light sources, monochromators, detectors, light based components for microscopes and bench top fluorescence systems. OBB products can be found at work in medical, healthcare, industrial process, quality control and environmental science laboratories and research facilities around the world. With production facilities in the United States and Canada, sales and service centers in North America and distributors worldwide, OBB is a recognized leader in light based components and systems.
