LightField

“We have used the Princeton Instruments LightField software for all acquisitions with our PI-MAX4 cameras. The ease of use, to get up and going quickly, was essential for our project ‘Cherenkoscopy based radiation therapy’, and this tool was exactly the right fit for our research”.
- Prof. Brian Pogue, Dartmouth College, USA


"We have been using the Princeton Instruments LightField software for all acquisitions with our PI-MAX4 cameras. Its intuitive interface and embedded analytical functions allows us to get up and going quickly, and do image processing on-the-fly. Overall this tool has been essential for our research on fast X-ray imaging of dynamic compression processes.”
- Dr. Dan Eakins, Imperial College, UK


"Our research group uses imaging spectrographs from Princeton Instruments to acquire Fourier-resolved photoluminescence data from lanthanide ions, organic molecules, and semiconductor quantum dots. Using LightField and its new IntelliCal feature, we have been able to rapidly shift between different detectors and grating sets to work over a broad spectral range. LightField's novel interface allows each user to customize his or her experiments, and the automated IntelliCal routine provides an easy and accurate way to perform both wavelength and intensity calibration in just a few minutes."
- Prof. Rashid Zia - Brown University, USA


“LightField integrated with LabVIEW allows the Van Duyne Group to easily collect spectra and synchronize data collection with other instrumentation. In addition, using LightField enables 1kHz frame rates from a PIXIS 100B camera to maximize signal to noise for Femtosecond Stimulated Raman Spectroscopy (FSRS).”
- Jon A. Dieringer, Northwestern University, USA


"We are using the PIXIS camera and an Acton Spectrograph to analyze gases in the atmosphere though UV/Visible spectroscopy. Measurements are made for many hours at a time so we use an Add-In to the LightField software for our data acquisition which allows us to easily start our experiment and save the data to multiple files without user intervention."
– Dr. Louisa Kramer, Michigan Tech University, USA


“Unsere Fachgruppe am LTTT beschäftigt sich mit der Weiterentwicklung und Applikation von optischen (Laser-) Messtechniken mit besonderem Schwerpunkt auf der Analyse und Optimierung der gesamten motorischen Wirkkette. Die intuitive Bedienbarkeit und die individuelle Anpassungsmöglichkeit der Software Lightfield erlaubt uns eine schnelle und einfache Datenaufnahme an unseren vielfältigen Experimenten. In der Kombination mit PI-MAX4-Kameras profitieren wir dabei besonders vom [PI-MAX4] SuperSynchro timing-Generator, so dass eine sehr präzise zeitliche Steuerung mittels Lightfield möglich ist.”

Our specialist group on LTTT deals with the development and Application of optical (laser) measurement techniques with particular emphasis on the analysis and optimization of the engine operation. With its intuitive operation, Light Field allows us to data acquisition in various experiments quickly and easily. In combination with PI MAX4 cameras we benefit particularly from [PI-MAX4] SuperSynchro timing generator interface, which makes very precise timing possible, using LightField.
- Dr. Sebastian Lehmann, University of Bayreuth, Germany


“We use the Princeton Instruments Lightfield software to control our PI-MAX and PIXIS cameras and an Acton spectrometer. These are used for optical spectroscopy with the laser-heated diamond anvil cell at our synchrotron beamline. For this application we need to control Lightfield from the EPICS beamline control system, which has worked very well.” -Mark Rivers, Advanced Photon Source, Argonne National Laboratories, USA

TERS - Tip-Enhanced Raman spectroscopy

X-Ray Plasma Diagnostics
Hot and dense plasmas are of enormous interest in basic physics research because of the multitude of interesting phenomena that arise from them.

Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy
LIBS is considered one of the most convenient and efficient analytical techniques for trace elemental analysis in gases, solids, and liquids. LIBS spectra obtained by the Mars Curiosity Rover have confirmed that our sister planet could have harbored life

吸收,反射及透射光谱 Absorbance, Reflectance and Transmission
A measure of the amount of light absorbed by a sample as a beam of light passes through it.

Fluorescence, Phosphorescence, and Photoluminescence Spectroscopy
Fluorescence, phosphorescence and photoluminescence occur when a sample is excited by absorbing photons and then emits them with a decay time that is characteristic of the sample environment.

Coherent X-Ray Diffraction
X-ray diffraction is a technique for studying the characteristics of matter such as macromolecules, crystals, powders, polymers, and fibers.

Small Animal Imaging
For small-animal imaging in the NIR II / SWIR range, Princeton Instruments recommends the NIRvana:640 camera. We designed this 16-bit camera specifically for scientific research applications that require superb linearity and excellent near-infrared sensitivity.

Astronomical Imaging
Astronomical imaging can be broadly divided into two categories: (1) steady-state imaging, in which long exposures are required to capture ultra-low-light-level objects, and (2) time-resolved photometry, in which integration times range from milliseconds to a few seconds.

General Raman
The most common application of Raman spectroscopy involves the vibrational energy levels of a molecule. Incident laser light in the UV, visible or NIR, is scattered from molecular vibrational modes.

Bose-Einstein Condensate
Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) can be regarded as matter made from matter waves. It is formed when a gas composed of a certain kind of particles, referred to as “bosonic” particles, is cooled very close to absolute zero.

Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy
SERS - Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy

Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Spectroscopy
Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy (CARS) a type of non-linear Raman spectroscopy. Instead of the traditional single laser, two very strong collinear lasers irradiate a sample.

Singlet Oxygen Imaging
Singlet oxygen, the first excited state of molecular oxygen, is a highly reactive species that plays an important role in a wide range of biological processes, including cell signaling, immune response, macromolecule degradation, and elimination of neoplastic tissue during photodynamic therapy.

Soft X-Ray Microscopy
Soft X-ray Microscopy is used for imaging and researching the elemental composition and structure of biological samples and more.

Combustion
Combustion researchers rely on laser-based optical diagnostic techniques as essential tools in understanding and improving the combustion process.

Nanotechnology
Nanotechnology helps scientists and engineers create faster electronics as well as ultrastrong and extremely light structural materials.

Dynamic Neutron Radiography
Neutron radiography offers an excellent complement to x-ray imaging for a diverse range of nondestructive investigations

Plasma Emission Spectroscopy
The different types of plasma emission spectroscopy can be categorized by how the plasma is generated. Spectra of nuclear fusion plasmas are used to ascertain the chemical species present and other properties.

EUV Lithography
EUV lithography is gaining popularity because it retains the look and feel of the traditional optical lithography process (i.e., utilizes the 13.5 nm wavelength) and uses the same basic design tools.

FLIM - Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging Microscopy
FLIM encompasses several techniques for mapping the spatial distribution of excited-state lifetimes of emitting molecular species with nanosecond and microsecond temporal resolution.

X-Ray Spectroscopy
X-ray absorption spectroscopy is an element-specific probe of the local structure of elements in a material.

Resonance Raman Spectroscopy
Instead of fluorescence, some types of colored molecules produce strong Raman scattering at certain conditions. This effect was called Resonance Raman.

Stimulated Raman Scattering
Stimulated Raman scattering takes place when an excess of Stokes photons that were previously generated by normal Raman scattering are present or are deliberately added to the excitation beam.

Streak Tube Readout
Streak tube readout is commonly used to obtain intensity vs. spatial or spectral information over time periods of picoseconds to nanoseconds.

Micro-Computed Tomography
Micro Computer Tomography is a unique technique for the noninvasive, nondestructive 3D characterization of materials down to a micrometer scale.
