  1. Ophir Photonics Announces FluxGage All-in-One LED Luminaire Measurement System
    9/19/2016

    Ophir Photonics Group recently announced the FluxGage, a compact, all-in-one LED luminaire measurement system. The patent-pending FluxGage measures flux, color, and flicker, important quantities for evaluating the performance of LED-based products. The measurement system is three times smaller and lower cost than equivalent integrating sphere products. It is designed for use by R&D during development and production for incoming inspection and quality control of new and replacement parts, allowing LED luminaires and modules to be sorted for consistency. 

  2. Ophir Photonics Announces New Features For StarBright, Advanced Laser Power/Energy Meter
    7/18/2016

    The new update to the StarBright handheld laser power/energy meter is the ability to measure the instantaneous power of a laser pulse. This is especially useful for measuring lasers in high power applications. StarBright can now also be used to measure total energy exposure with a Photodiode sensor, a big plus for photolithography applications.
