Light engines offering has use in structured illumination microscopy

ZIVA quattro light engines deliver ~100 mW output power at the distal end of a 100 µm optical fiber for each of its 4- or 5-line individually addressable light sources.
Coupling of a solid-state light engine to an inverted fluorescence microscope. Locations 1–5 marked in yellow correspond to the points in the light path used for throughput measurements reported in the table. The green line shows the direction of the light path from the collimating adapter input to the sample plane.

Optimizing solid-state illumination, from source to sample plane

When photons from a light engine are getting lost on their way to the microscope’s sample plane, follow this path to find the failure point(s).

A four-source light engine allows electronic selection and combination of the discrete spectral outputs of solid-state sources (1-4) according to application requirements, where the spectral output of each source can be refined by filtering and, optionally, a reference photodiode can monitor light engine output to provide feedback control.

To investigate the bleaching rate of fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) with different light sources, 1mM FITC in water under a coverslip was collected with a Nikon E800 and 40x, 0.75 numerical aperture objective at 1 s intervals for 1 min using a CoolSNAP MYO camera (Photometrics). The red dotted line represents a 120 W metal-halide source at full power with the microscope shutter set to block illumination between exposures using an enhanced green fluorescent protein (eGFP) filter set. The green solid line is similar, using the cyan line of the self-shuttering Lumencor SpectraX Light Engine at full power, pulsing at 1 ms intervals during the 1 s exposure. Note t0 = 2,000 counts and 5,081 counts for metal-halide and light engine, respectively.

A typical light engine comprises a lamp module and delivery optics. The Lumenor light-pipe geometry integrates a significant fraction of the light, resulting in high external efficiencies that are optimized by the design of the lamp module (including the excitation source) and the unique geometric shape of the pipe. Increased power levels can be obtained by scaling the light pipe and associated excitation.
