TECHSPEC® Fused Silica Light Pipe Homogenizing Rods utilize total internal reflection to homogenize non-uniform light sources regardless of their spectral characteristics. Their hexagonal configurations provide 35% less light loss than a comparable square configuration. Low Numerical Aperture (NA) sources require longer pipes to uniformly homogenize light while shorter pipes will sufficiently homogenize the output from high NA sources. TECHSPEC® Fused Silica Light Pipe Homogenizing Rods are made from UV Fused silica which is great for use with UV LED illumination sources. These homogenizing rods have excellent transmission in the UV.
N-BK7 versions of our light pipe homogenizing rods are also available. TECHSPEC® Light Pipe Homogenizing Rod Mounts, specifically designed to hold our standard and fused silica families of light pipe homogenizing rods, are available; these mounts greatly simplify the handling and integration of these components.
