Spectralon and Spectraflect provide exceptional reflectance

With 96 to 98 per cent reflectance, Labsphere's Spectralon material and Spectraflect coating provide a very high level of uniform light integration for maximum efficiency in light collection tubes and light guides used in medical imaging equipment.

Spectralon and Spectraflect provide exceptional reflectance

The near-Lambertian properties of Spectralon and Spectraflect deliver a uniform dispersion of light that integrates light and is said to reduce hotspots better than other materials in coated cavity applications. A high reflectance over a broad spectral range of 250-2500nm increases optical efficiency. Performance therefore requires less light input, which lowers energy and design costs. Since light collection and reflectance are not dependent on the geometry of light input, design flexibility is increased. Inert, thermally stable and UV-resistant, Labsphere's materials and coatings ensure consistent optical stability and long-term performance reliability.

Machined Spectralon can be economically fabricated into a wide variety of shapes to meet imaging instrument designs. In-house machining enables samples to be created quickly as well as easily and modified throughout the design, prototyping and testing process. For other applications, Spectraflect diffuse reflectance coating can be uniformly spray-coated on customer provided substrates.

Labsphere's engineering staff often collaborate with customers to develop custom light collection tubes and light guides. To request a prototype, submit a specification drawing to [email protected].
