Is the shirt on the shelf really made of 100% cotton? Does the apple in the supermarket only look delicious, or is it spoiled and vitamin deficient? A closer look at the molecular structure provides the answers to these questions. Near-infrared spectroscopy makes that possible. For many years, Osram Opto Semiconductors has been a leader in the development of compact and particularly powerful broadband infrared emitters for spectroscopy. In addition to the broad wavelength range, the energy efficiency of the integrated components is essential to system manufacturers, as are the compact dimensions. Osram’s Oslon P1616 SFH 4737 combines these properties and offers even further benefits for customers. This product will soon make mobile spectroscopy solutions a reality.
With its extremely compact dimensions of just 1.6mm x 1.6mm x 0.9mm, the Oslon P1616 SFH 4737 from Osram is the world's smallest near-infrared LED (NIRED) for spectroscopy applications available in the market (more info).
