FTMC100-LDS High-powered Tuneable Light Source

A high brightness, fibre-coupled, broandband tunable monochromatic light source, capable of UV, visible and NIR emission. 

Powered by an Hamamatsu/Energetiq EQ-77 very high radiance source for maximum light coupled into the output fibre, the FTMC100-LDS is a highly specialised alternative to our normal configurable monochromators. Featuring high-efficiency dynamic optical elements and up to three gratings for increased efficiency across a broad spectral range, the FTMC100-LDS delivers  intense monochromatic light via a convenient fibre, ready to plug into your application.



The FTMC50-SCL excels wherever high intensity light of particular spectral parameters is required, including:

  • Photoluminescence spectroscopy
  • Fluorescence imaging, microscopy
  • Detector responsivity / QE evaluation
  • Spectral Flat-field correction


  • Precision

    The wavelength selection mechanism is tried-and-tested. It utilises the same technology as is available in our top-line monochromators, offering incredibly precise and accurate positioning of the internal diffraction grating.

  • Dynamic Optics

    Due to its high efficiency dynamic optics and high-radiance light source, the FTMC100-LDS emits very intense light in a convenient fibre form factor.

  • Configurability 

    With its three diffraction gratings, and broadband EQ77 light source,  FTMC100-LDS can be configured to be suitable to many different applications, or even fine-tuned for certain spectral ranges.

  • Remote Interface 

    If you want to automate your testing or integrate the light source into a bigger system, the FTMC100-LDS has a simple USB text-based remote interface compatible with any modern computer and operating system, without drivers. The protocol is based on the widely-used SCPI syntax. We also provide development tools and libraries including Windows SDK and terminal, and a cross-platform python package (bendev).
