  1. Advantages of Point Source Emitters: Application Note
    4/30/2012

    A Point Source Emitter is similar to a standard LED, however, its well defined circular area (usually 25μm-200μm in diameter) makes it ideal in applications involving encoders, machine vision, medical fiber, and any other application where a precise beam of light is needed. This application note provides background information on Point Source Emitters, and highlights their advantages over standard LEDs.
