Ocean Optics

White Bear Photonics is a distributor for Ocean Optics, the first company to develop a low cost fiber optic UV-VIS-NIR miniature spectrometer system for a wide range of new applications. Ocean Optics is the world leader in solutions for optical sensing. We enable diverse applications in medical and biological research, environmental monitoring, life science, science education and entertainment lighting and display. Our extensive line of complementary technologies includes spectrometers, chemical sensors, metrology instrumentation, optical fibers and thin films and optics. Recognized as the inventor of miniature fiber optic spectroscopy.
Ocean Optics has developed a diversified set of manufacturing arts that are essential to components in four key photonics segments: Optical Sensing, Optical Networking, Display Optics and Biophotonics. Primary markets include consumer electronics, process control, environmental monitoring, life sciences and medical diagnostics. Our systems have been used everywhere from in vivo to the ocean floor; on the Mars Rover and the Mir space station; and in Florida's orange groves and South America's rain forests.

Spectroscopic techniques supported include:

UV-VIS-NIR spectroscopy
On-line spectroscopy
Color spectroscopy
Raman spectroscopy

Raman sample holder

Ocean Optics offers several sample holders for Raman analysis of liquids and solids, including a multipurpose holder that can be configured for fluorescence and other measurements. The holders accommodate Raman probes from 9.5 mm-12.7 mm diameter and 1 cm pathlength cuvettes and vials of various dimensions.Full Detail


Flame-Resistant Fiber Probe

The FL-400 is a heat-resistant fiber optic probe that couples via a fiber and splice bushing to our spectrometers to measure in situ emission spectra. Typical samples include dissolved metals and high-temperature plasmas, but these probes are also useful for measurements close to a high-temperature object like a furnace or flame.Full Detail


Longpass Flow Cells

LPC Longpass Flow Cells couple to Ocean Optics spectrometers and light sources for measurement of low-volume and low-concentration aqueous samples. The cells are available in standard and microvolume versions, with pathlengths ranging from 1 cm-500 cm and internal volume levels from 2.4 µL-1,250 µL.
