Solid-state light engines are now displacing mercury, metal halide and tungsten-halogen lamps in many bio-optical applications. This trend is driven by a wide range of economic and performance benefits. Light engines are less expensive to operate and maintain than lamps because there are no bulbs or light guide replacements required. Output stability and electronic control of output intensity are dramatically superior to the decay, noise, flicker of any bulb.
An article by Lumencor’s Director of Technical Support, Iain Johnson, in the February 2017 issue of Laser Focus World describes how these benefits can be leveraged to deliver illumination solutions tailored for specific applications.
