Knight Optical can offer Custom Homogenizing Rods for use within Fluorescence Imaging.

We supply a range of tapered and hexagonal light pipe homogenizing rods for a range of applications.  All individually QA checked and metrology tested for quality to ensure parts meet customer specification.  Supplied in a range of materials and size and shape to meet your individual applications.

Knight Optical supply precision optical components to customers in the medical industry for applications such as fluorescence illumination, microscopy and imaging. Homogenizing Rods are used within the application of surgical procedures; within systems designed to help identify which tissues have been exposed to the fluorescent indicator.

The Light source will enter a light pipe at a variety of incident angles, which is designed to utilise its total internal reflection to channel the light from the entrance of the light pipe to the exit. The material’s refractive index is the only factor which affects the light pipes critical angle; this defines the angle of acceptance which the total internal reflection will occur at. With this it helps to control the light source being used in medical systems.
