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:
Fiber optic chemical sensing
Fiber optic UV-VIS-NIR spectrometers ranging from miniature, modular systems to process analyzers
Low-cost Raman spectrometers for process control and other applications
Fiber optic chemical sensors for measuring oxygen and pH
Optical fibers, assemblies and probes
