Mounted LED Image Map
A mounted LED requires an LED driver to run; a collimation adapter (optional) collimates the diverging beam emitted by the LED. See the tables below to determine the appropriate LED driver. To determine the needed collimation adapter for a given LED, see the info icons (info icon) below.

Mounted LED Features

  • Wavelengths Ranging from 265 nm to 1650 nm (See LED Quick Links Table to the Right)
  • White, Broadband, and Dual-Peak LEDs Also Available
  • Integrated Memory Stores LED Operating Parameters
  • Thermal Properties Optimized for Stable Output Power
  • Microscope- and SM-Thread-Compatible Collimation Adapters Available
  • 4-Pin Female Mating Connector for Custom Power Supplies can be Purchased Separately

Each Thorlabs uncollimated, mounted LED consists of a single LED mounted to the end of a heat sink with 6 mm deep, SM1 (1.035"-40) internal threads. LEDs with Ø1.20" heat sinks have the same outer diameter as an SM1 Lens Tube, allowing them to fit inside a 30 mm Cage System. A selection of our LEDs are mounted to larger heat sinks, as they generate more heat during operation. These heat sinks are enclosed in Ø57.0 mm vented plastic housings and include four 4-40 tapped holes on the front for integration with 30 mm cage systems.

Every LED features an EEPROM chip which stores information about the LED (e.g., current limit, wavelength, forward voltage). When controlled by a Thorlabs DC2200, DC4100, or DC4104 LED driver, the data can be used to implement smart safety features.

These mounted LEDs possess good thermal stability properties, eliminating the issue of degradation of optical output power due to increased LED temperature. For more details, please see the Stability tab.

Please note that mounted LEDs are not intended for use in household illumination applications.

LED Collimation
Our adjustable collimation adapters can translate a Ø2" (50 mm) lens by up to 20 mm. Each adjustable collimation adapter includes an internal SM2 (2.035"-40) thread adapter so that the LEDs can be easily integrated with Thorlabs' SM2-threaded components, such as our Ø2" lens tubes. These adapters are offered in versions with and without an AR-coated aspheric condenser lens.

In addition, microscope collimation adapters are available that incorporate an AR-coated aspheric lens. These adapters mate to the epi-illumination ports on select Leica DMI, Nikon Eclipse Ti, Olympus IX/BX, or Zeiss Axioskop microscopes. Thorlabs also offers mounted LEDs with pre-attached microscope collimation adapters.

We offer suggestions for collimating most LEDs. Click on the info icon (info icon) for each LED below for details.

Driver Options
Thorlabs offers four drivers compatible with most or all of these LEDs: LEDD1B, DC2200, DC4100, and DC4104 (the latter two require the DC4100-HUB). See the tables below for driver compatibility info. The LEDD1B is capable of providing LED modulation frequencies up to 5 kHz, while DC4100 and DC4104 can modulate the LED at a rate up to 100 kHz. The DC2200 can provide modulation at up to 250 kHz if driven by an external source. In addition, the DC2200, DC4100, and DC4104 drivers are capable of reading the current limit from the EEPROM chip of the connected LED and automatically adjusting the maximum current setting to protect the LED.

Multi-LED Source
A customizable multi-LED source may be constructed using our mounted LEDs and other Thorlabs items. This source may be configured for integration with Thorlabs' versatile SM1 Lens Tube Systems and 30 mm Cage Systems. Please see the Multi-LED Source tab for a detailed item list and instructions.

Thorlabs also offers integrated, user-configurable 4-Wavelength High-Power LED Sources.

Relative Power

The actual spectral output and total output power of any given LED will vary due to variations in the manufacturing process and operating parameters, such as temperature and current. Both a typical and minimum output power are specified to help you select an LED that suits your needs. Each mounted LED will provide at least the minimum specified output power at the maximum current. In order to provide a point of comparison for the relative powers of LEDs with different nominal wavelengths, the spectra in the plots below have been scaled to the minimum output power for each LED. This data is representative, not absolute. An Excel file with normalized and scaled spectra for all of the mounted LEDs can be downloaded here.

340 nm LED Long Term Stability
Click to Enlarge

Our 340 nm mounted LED has a typical lifetime of >3,000 hours. In this case, the unit under test continued to provide more than 90% of its initial power after 45 days.

LED Lifetime and Long-Term Power Stability

One characteristic of LEDs is that they naturally exhibit power degradation with time. Often this power degradation is slow, but there are also instances where large, rapid drops in power, or even complete LED failure, occur. LED lifetimes are defined as the time it takes a specified percentage of a type of LED to fall below some power level. The parameters for the lifetime measurement can be written using the notation BXX/LYY, where XX is the percentage of that type of LED that will provide less than YY percent of the specified output power after the lifetime has elapsed. Thorlabs defines the lifetime of our LEDs as B50/L50, meaning that 50% of the LEDs with a given item # will fall below 50% of the initial optical power at the end of the specified lifetime. For example, if a batch of 100 LEDs is rated for 150 mW of output power, 50 of these LEDs can be expected to produce an output power of ≤75 mW after the specified LED lifetime has elapsed.

The sample plot to the right shows example data from long-term stability testing over a 45 day period for a 340 nm mounted LED, which had a lifetime of >3,000 hours (~125 days). The small power drop experienced by the LED after it is turned on is typical behavior during the first few minutes of operation. It corresponds to the period of time required for the LED to warm up to the point where it is thermally stable. Please note that this graph represents the performance of a single LED; the performance of individual LEDs will vary within the stated specifcations.

Optimized Thermal Management

The thermal dissipation performance of these mounted LEDs has been optimized for stable power output. The heat sink is directly mounted to the LED mount so as to provide optimal thermal contact. By doing so, the degradation of optical output power that can be attributed to increased LED junction temperature is minimized (see the graph to the left).

Obtaining a Well-Collimated Beam

After installing the chosen collimation package on a mounted LED, the distance between the lens and the LED may need to be adjusted to ensure that the LED is properly collimated. A well-collimated beam has minimal divergence and will not converge at any point in the beam path (see images below for comparison). Be advised that, due to the high emitter surface area of the LED, the output beam cannot be perfectly collimated. Divergence data for select LEDs is provided in the below table as a reference; see the info icons ( info icon ) below for the recommended collimating optic for each LED.

  1. Power on the LED and check to see if it is properly collimated. It is easiest to check that the beam is collimated by noting the changes in the beam diameter over a range of about 1" to 2 feet away; change the distance of the lens from the LED and check again. Do this until the least divergent, non-converging, homogenous beam is obtained. The beam should be somewhat circular, may have a slightly polygonal shape, and should not be a clear image of the LED itself.
  2. If you see an image of the LED, this means that the lens is not close enough to the LED. Move the lens closer to the LED until the image blurs and becomes homogenous – this is the point of collimation. Note: If the lens needs to be closer to the LED when using the DIY collimation assembly, use one retaining ring to secure the lens against the internal lip of the SM1V05.

Multi-LED Source Coupled to Microscope Illumination Port

Creating a Custom Multi-LED Source for Microscope Illumination

Thorlabs offers the items necessary to create your own custom multi-LED light source using two or three of the mounted LEDs offered below. As configured in the following example, the light source is intended to be used with the illumination port of a microscope. However, it may be integrated with other applications using Thorlabs' versatile SM1 Lens Tube and 30 mm Cage Systems. Thorlabs also offers integrated, user-configurable 4-Wavelength LED Sources.

Design & Construction

First, light will be collimated by lenses mounted in lens tubes. Dichroic mirrors mounted in kinematic cage cubes then combine the output from the multiple LEDs. The mounted LEDs may be driven by LEDD1B Compact T-Cube LED Drivers (power supplies are sold separately). The LEDD1B LED Drivers allow each LED's output to be independently modulated and can provide up to 1200 mA of current. Please take care not to drive the LED sources above their max current ratings.

When designing your custom source, select mounted LEDs from below along with dichroic mirror(s) that have cutoff wavelength(s) between the LED wavelengths. The appropriate dichroic mirror(s) will reflect light from side-mounted LEDs and transmit light along the optical axis. Please note that most of these dichroic mirrors are "longpass" filters, meaning they transmit the longer wavelengths and reflect the shorter wavelengths. To superimpose light from three or more LEDs, add each in series (as shown below), starting from the back with longer wavelength LEDs when using longpass filters. Shortpass filters may also used if the longer wavelength is reflected and the shorter wavelength is transmitted. Sample combinations of compatible dichroic mirrors and LEDs are offered in the three tables below.

It is also necessary to select an aspheric condenser lens for each source with AR coatings appropriate for the source. Before assembling the light source, collimate the light from each mounted LED as detailed in the Collimation tab. For mounting the aspheric lenses in the SM1V05 Lens Tubes using the included SM1RR retaining rings, we recommend the SPW801 Adjustable Spanner Wrench. A properly collimated LED source should have a resultant beam that is approximately homogenous and not highly divergent at a distance of approximately 2 feet (60 cm). An example of a well-collimated beam is shown on the Collimation tab.

After each LED source is collimated, thread the SM1V05 Lens Tubes at the end of each collimated LED assembly into their respective C4W Cage Cube ports using SM1T2 Lens Tube Couplers. Install each dichroic filter in an FFM1 Dichroic Filter Holder, and mount each filter holder onto a B4C Kinematic Cage Cube Platform. Each platform is then installed in the C4W Cage Cubes by partially threading the included screws into the bottom of the cube, and then inserting and rotating the B4C platform into place. Align the platform to the desired position and then firmly tighten the screws. To connect multiple cage cubes and the microscope adapter, use the remaining SM1T2 lens tube couplers along with an SM1L05 0.5" Lens Tube between adjacent cage cubes. Finally, adjust the rotation, tip, and tilt of each B4C platform to align the reflected and transmitted beams so they overlap as closely as possible.

If desired, a multi-LED source may be constructed that employs more than three LEDs. The limiting factors for the number of LEDs that can be practically used are the collimation of the light and the dichroic mirror efficiency over the specified range. Heavier multi-LED sources may be supported with our Ø1" or Ø1.5" Posts.

Using Mounted LEDs in Cerna® Microscope Systems

Mounted LEDs, which can have either narrowband or broadband spectra, are useful for a range of applications within Thorlabs' Cerna microscopy platform:

  • Fluorescence Microscopy
  • Brightfield Microscopy
  • Near Infrared/Infrared (NIR/IR) Microscopy

If you are interested in using a mounted LED with a Cerna modular microscopy system, the mounted LED can be attached by way of the single-cube epi-illuminator module (Item # WFA2001), which contains AR-coated optics optimized for the 350 - 700 nm wavelength range. The mounted LED and epi-illuminator module are connected together by an externally threaded coupler (Item # SM1T10, provided with the WFA2001), which includes two knurled locking rings (Item # SM1NT, also provided with the WFA2001) that are tightened by hand. The mounted LED is then powered by a driver, sold separately. Please see the LED Drivers tab to identify the appropriate driver for your mounted LED. If you wish to connect multiple mounted LEDs to the epi-illuminator module, contact Technical Support.

  • Automatically limits to LED's max current via EEPROM readout.
  • The DC4100 and DC4104 can power and control up to four LEDs simultaneously when used with the DC4100-HUB. The LEDs on this page all require the DC4100-HUB when used with the DC4100 or DC4104.
  • These LED drivers have a maximum forward voltage rating of 5 V and can provide a maximum current of 1000 mA. As a result, they cannot be used to drive LEDs which have forward voltage ratings greater than 5 V. LEDs with maximum current ratings higher than 1.0 A can be driven using this driver, but will not reach full power.
  • The mounted LEDs sold below are compatible with the LED2 Terminal.
  • Small Signal Bandwidth: Modulation not exceeding 20% of full scale current. The driver accepts other waveforms, but the maximum frequency will be reduced.
  • Several of these LEDs produce light by stimulating emission from phosphor, which limits their modulation frequencies. The M565L3, M595L3, and all purple or white LEDs may not turn off completely when modulated above 10 kHz at duty cycles below 50%. The MBB1L3 LED may not turn off completely when modulated at frequencies above 1 kHz with a duty cycle of 50%. When the MBB1L3 is modulated at frequencies above 1 kHz, the duty cycle may be reduced; for example, 10 kHz modulation is attainable with a duty cycle of 5%.

This is a response from Nicola at Thorlabs. Thank you very much for your inquiry! We do not specify rise and fall times of LEDs, but typical values are in the ns range. The rise and fall times of LED systems are, however, limited by the driver electronics in most cases. Using one of our LED drivers leads to response times in the several µs range.

Will a diffuse condenser lens have much effect on its collimation compared to a clear one?
wskopalik  (posted 2018-11-29 07:17:48.0)
This is a response from Wolfgang at Thorlabs. Thank you very much for your inquiry! The quality of the collimation, i.e. the remaining divergence, will be roughly the same with or without a diffuser. The diffuser smoothens the intensity distribution of the beam and makes it more homogeneous. It will also smoothen the edge of the beam a bit so the beam would look a bit wider. The main disadvantage of a diffuser is that the transmitted power would be lower than without a diffuser due to absorption and reflection.

Hi, Can I know if M415LP1 compatible with the LED driver LEDD1B? Thanks
nreusch  (posted 2018-11-09 10:09:57.0)
This is a response from Nicola at Thorlabs. Thank you for your inquiry! The forward voltage of LEDD1B is high enough to drive M415LP1, but the maximum current is 1.2 A only, whereas the maximum drive current of the LED is 2 A. To reach the specified minimum output power of 1640 mW, you would need to apply a higher current than LEDD1B can provide. I therefore recommend using DC2200 as driver.

This is a response from Sebastian at Thorlabs. Thank you for the inquiry. The selection look adequate for collimating the M1300L3. Basically the distance of the lens to the LED should be the back focal length. The best distance between LED and lens depends on the optical path in your microscope. I recommend to start with the back focal length and optimize the distance until you get best results. I contacted you directly for assistance.

Hi, I see high frequency fluctuations on the flux output generated by the LED at 660nm. I use the M660 and the LEDD1B controller in continuous mode, below the maximum current (using the setting 1000 mA, to a rather high setting in this mode ~50 to 70% of the knob range). Fluctuations appear at the level of the kHz: we sample our signals at about 1.05 kHz, and observe sporadic drops (down to ~30% of the nominal value). Are you aware of a feature of the controller or the LED driver or of the LED electronics which would be related to this effect?
wskopalik  (posted 2017-06-22 06:01:47.0)
This is a response from Wolfgang at Thorlabs. Thank you very much for your inquiry! The only expected fluctuation on the LEDD1B would be the ripple on its current which is specified to 8mA max. You use the LEDD1B at about 500-700mA so the ripple would be less than 1% of the current and couldn't account for the large drops in power you see. I will contact you directly to discuss this issue in further detail so we can find the reason for these power drops.

For modulation at frequencies above 1 kHz, the duty cycle may be reduced. For example, 10 kHz modulation is attainable with a duty cycle of 5%. The broadband emission is luminescence generated by Phosphor.

I want to use an LED as an excitation source on an olympus BX60 microscope. you sell the product for this, however it uses a 2" lens and when I look down the microscope illumination port it has a 25-30mm diameter restriction in it meaning most of the light from the LED would be blocked. So would it be better to use a 1" lens to collimate the LED as described below, rather than the product specified for the olympus microscope, and how would I fix this to the microscope, do you sell the olympus adapter without a lens?
besembeson  (posted 2016-06-22 01:59:06.0)
Response from Bweh at Thorlabs USA: Due to the large divergence angles of these LEDs, the 2" diameter lenses will collect more power than the 1" optic. For example, with a 60deg half angle divergence LED and a 20mm (or 12mm BFL) 1" lens, you will only be capturing about 56% of the LED output, which may or may not be suitable depending on your application. Should you need to use the 1" LED collimators, you would need an SM2T2 and we can provide the corresponding 2" adapter without the lens inside.

Very pleased with your offering a 2" adjuster. Unfortunately, 3 out of 4 of the adjusters I am working with (ACP2520, SM2P50 and SM1P25) are hard to rotate. From my first observations, it seems it may be related to the environment conditions (temperature, humidity). Would it be possible you provide your customers with the proper working environment conditions for the SM2P50 and SM1P25? Note that one SM1P25 doesn't have the problem at all, but the ACP2520 did (I modified it myself for smooth rotation), as well as the latest SM1P25 and SM2P50 I've received. I have contacted you and provided a detail report of my observations but only received a proposition from Thorlabs application engineer Yi-Ma to change the parts in question.

Dear Thorlabs, The thorlabs LED collimation page describes using an SM1 lens tube and aspheric lens. It seems you advise we buy an adjustable 1/2" lens tube and extend it with a 0.30" adapter. Since ThorLabs sells an adjustable 1" lens tube (SM1V10) this seems rather redundant, unless the thread inside the LED casing does not allow it to collimate. There is no information about the depth of the SM1 thread inside the LED casing. My question is this: Could you tell me whether SM1V10 would be able to collimate the LED on its own, or does it require SM1V05 and the 0.30" spacer? If this is the case, I suggest you extend the thread on the LED case, if possible, to simplify the process. Kind regards, Sam S

Response from Mike at Thorlabs: Thank you for your feedback. The thread depth is stated within our mechanical drawings (http://www.thorlabs.com/thorcat/MTN/M530L3-AutoCADPDF.pdf) which can be found by clicking on the red "docs" icons by the items numbers below. The thread depth for these LEDs is 6 mm. Based on this feedback we have added this information to the Overview tab of the web page. The SM1V10 can be used in place of the SM1V05 and SM1L03 pairing. However, the current recommendation allows for a slightly longer translation range of the optic due to the 7.6 mm depth of the internal threading in the SM1L03. The Collimation tab has also been updated to include the use of the SM1V10 as a collimation solution for these LEDs.

In this range you will see a linear relationship, however we have no information how this relationship changes in the range from 350mA to 700mA. We have tested this LED only at 700mA as this is the maximum drive current our heat sink system can also manage.

This is a response from Thomas at Thorlabs. Thank you very much for your inquiry. Our Mounted High Power LEDs are all equipped with an EEPROM where the operating parameters are stored. The LED drivers DC2100, DC4100 and DC4104 read out the EEPORM and set the maximum operating current to the stored value. This way a current overload can be avoided. The driver LEDD1B is not able to read out the EEPROM and the current limit has to be set manually. The EEPROM will not cause noise to the current supply. I will contact you directly with more detailed information.

One other thing: On the application page where it explains how to collimate the LED, it says to use a SPW602 spanner wrench to secure the aspheric lens with one retaining ring on each side.

Hi: I have a minor issue to relay about the packaging of the mounted LEDs. I bought an M735L3 late last week and received it today. The plastic case it comes in is not well designed or built. Specifically, the red latch on front broke off while I was trying to figure out how to open the case. And it took two of the black plastic hinge-posts with it, so even when I put the latch back on the case, the case won't stay shut anymore. It seems silly to provide these in a hard shell case if the latch can't withstand a bit of force from a novice case-opener.

Response from Jeremy at Thorlabs: Is your power supply a voltage source or is it a current source? It is highly recommended that you drive these LEDs with a current source instead. If you used a 5V constant voltage source (@ 3A), then you will most likely be injecting 3A of current into this LED and thus destroyed it (max. current for MCWHL2 is 1.6A). Please note that the typical forward voltage for the MCWHL2 is only about 3.5V. It could also be that you have not connected this correctly. I will get in contact with you directly to check on the details on your setup.

A response from Julien at Thorlabs: Dear HongYang, thank you for your inquiry! The curve displayed on our website is aimed at showing the effect of long term thermal stabilization, ie. heat transfer from the LED chip and PCB to the heat sink. Should the thermal exchange channel be poor, it can be that the temperature of the LED will settle at a too high temperature, which would lead to the situation displayed by the curve "LED with poor thermal management". The time scale for this effect is indeed in the seconds range and the curve was plotted accordingly, which can give the impression that the rise time is slow. This rise time is however much shorter than visible on this curve and is typically of a few 10's nanoseconds. The main limitation in this case is the capacitance of the LED and thermal effects as plotted on the aforementioned curve will only be relevant at on a much longer time scale and much lower in magnitude than the capacitance related limitation of the rise time.
LuHongyang  (posted 2012-07-16 03:08:26.0)
The figure in the tab 'Stability' shows that the rise time of these LEDs is several seconds. So does it mean that LED cannot be fully charged when modulated at a high frequency? If so, that will introduce instability to the power in that situation, I suppose. Thanks a lot. Hongyang.

How collimated should we expect to be able to make the light out of these LEDs? If we purchase one of the collimation lenses, does the light collimate as a circular beam or just as the square shape of the LED?

Response from Javier at Thorlabs to denis.battarel: Thank you for submitting your inquiry. There are a couple of options. You can use the LEDD1B driver, which has a maximum output of 1200 mA, or you can opt for the DC2100, whose maximum output current is 2000 mA. Both of these drivers can be operated in constant current mode, trigger mode, and modulation mode. Regarding the condenser lens, we would recommend using the ACL2520. Its diameter is 25 mm, so it is compatible with our SM1 lens tubes.

I would like to use the LCWHL2 white light LED with SM1 tube but what power supply can I use? I need maximum light flux, so the 1600mA are needed. I do not need to modulate the light. I have seen on your web site that previous driver going to 1200mW is obsolete but have not seen the new driver. What condenser lens would you recommend? I need it to fit in a SM1 tube.

Response from Javier at Thorlabs to godina: we are discussing internally the development of a mounted 560 nm LED. I will contact you directly with more details.
godina  (posted 2010-10-14 10:28:30.0)
Are you guys coming out with an M560L2? (mounted LED, 560nm pure green?

Response from Javier at Thorlabs to mjg: we offer a version of the M365L2 mounted LED which includes a condenser lens and a mounting adapter for Olympus BX & IX microscopes. The part number is M365L2-C1: http://www.thorlabs.com/NewGroupPage9.cfm?ObjectGroup_ID=2615

Hello, Im looking to mount this unit onto the condenser column of an Olympus IX71 (i.e. to use it as a replacement for a white light source). Can you suggest a mounting solution? Thank you.

A response from Adam at Thorlabs to jrguest: The size of the LED on this device is 1x1mm^2. We will contact you directly so we can clarification on the optical invariant that you are looking for.
jrguest  (posted 2010-03-03 19:52:14.0)
What is the size of the LED or LEDs on the device? I would like to know the optical invariant of this source.
apalmentieri  (posted 2010-02-17 08:48:10.0)
A response from Adam at Thorlabs to Michael: It is possible to get an LED that outputs 385nm with a higher output power. I will contact you directly to get more information about your application.
michael.spurr  (posted 2010-02-16 06:25:57.0)
Would it be possible to get an M385L1 that outputs a similar power (or as close as possible) to the M405L1? Thanks.
apalmentieri  (posted 2010-01-29 11:07:15.0)
A response from Adam at Thorlabs to Michael: Thanks for the clarification. Just to clarify my previous statement, if you over drive the current beyond 1A, you will damage the LED beyond repair.
michael.spurr  (posted 2010-01-29 06:53:11.0)
A response to Adam at Thorlabs: Sorry, I actually meant 1A (silly typo). The LED is currently being run at a constant voltage of just under 5V, so it is the current that I am concerned with. Thanks for the reply.
apalmentieri  (posted 2010-01-27 09:18:16.0)
A response from Adam at Thorlabs to Michael: Typically LEDs are run at 5V or 12V. Using a voltage higher than 1V will not damage the LED if you can limit the amount of current reaching the device. LEDs are current run devices and will be damaged beyond repair if drive them with too much current. The M405L1 cannot be driven above 1000mA.
michael.spurr  (posted 2010-01-27 03:50:48.0)
Can you tell me the risks associated with over-driving the M405L1 LED above 1V? What are the likely consequences in terms of output power and potential damage and how far above 1V would you have to go? Thanks.
klee  (posted 2009-10-05 16:14:12.0)
A response from Ken at Thorlabs: Yes, these mounted LEDs are also plug and play compatible with the new DC2100.
acable  (posted 2009-10-03 15:43:41.0)
Is this series of mounted LEDs plug and play compatible with the DC2100 driver.

Response from Javier at Thorlabs to booth: we currently do not offer a mounted LED with EEPROM in the 900-1500 nm range, but we can quote a special operating at 940 nm
booth  (posted 2009-05-05 16:27:53.0)
I would like a product like the M850L1 LED source, but with longer wavelength. Something >900 and <1500nm.
Laurie  (posted 2008-10-31 09:50:24.0)
Response from Laurie at Thorlabs to atashtoush: To modulate the MBLED you will need the LEDD1 T-Cube LED driver and a TPS001 15 V power supply. You will need to provide your own signal generator with the following requirements: Minimum Strobe Pulse Width: 50 µs Strobe Turn-On / Turn-Off Time: <25 µs. The maximum flash rate obtainable with the LEDD1 with full 100% modulation will be around 3 kHz with a maximum strobe effect up to 10 kHz. If you need to modulate at higher rates you would need to consider a laser driver. Depending on the driver, you can indirectly modulate to about 250 kHz. Above that value you need to RF modulation directly into the LED anode.
atashtoush  (posted 2008-10-30 15:13:41.0)
Hi, can you tell me how can we modulate this led using square wave because. what voltage and offset ..... thanks

White Mounted LEDs (400 - 700 nm Wavelength Range)

Our warm, neutral, and cold white LEDs feature broad spectra that span several hundred nanometers. The difference in appearance among these LEDs can be described using the correlated color temperature, which indicates that the LEDs color appearance is similar to a black body radiator at that temperature. In general, warm white LEDs offer a spectrum similar to a tungsten source, while cold white LEDs have a stronger blue component to the spectrum; neutral white LEDs provide a more even illumination spectrum over the visible range than warm white or cold white LEDs. Cold white LEDs are more suited for fluorescence microscopy applications or cameras with white balancing, because of a higher intensity at most wavelengths compared to warm white LEDs. Neutral white LEDs are ideal for horticultural applications.

LED Collimation Adapter
Click to Enlarge

SM2F Adapter Installed on a M365LP1 Mounted LED

These adapters allow a Ø2" (Ø50 mm) collimation optic to be integrated with the mounted LEDs sold above. The adapters can translate the lens by up to 20 mm. They are offered in versions without a collimation optic or with a removable AR-coated aspheric condenser lens for 350 - 700 nm or 650 - 1050 nm. All of these adapters attach to the LED housing via external SM1 threads, allowing them to be used with both the Ø30.5 mm and Ø57.0 mm housings.

The collimation lens is mounted in an inner carriage that provides rotating translation along the Z-axis by turning the knurled adjustment ring (engraved with the item # in the photos to the left) and is locked into position by turning the locking screw on the side of the adjustment ring with a 2 mm (5/64") hex key. Lines, spaced 2 mm apart, are engraved on the housing as a rough guide for how far the carriage has been translated. The mounting threads on the housing remain fixed during translation, allowing these adapters to be mounted between fixed lens tubes. These collimation adapters use an extra-thick SM2-threaded retaining ring designed for holding aspheric condenser lenses. The retaining rings can be tightened or loosened using an SPW604 spanner wrench.

The input and output apertures of the collimation adapters are threaded for compatibility with various components; please see the table below for details.

Inserting or Removing Optics
To insert or remove an optic in these collimation adapters, use the adjustment ring to translate the inner carriage to the output end of the housing. Remove the included retaining ring using the spanner wrench. If there is a lens installed already, remove it from the carriage. Insert another Ø2" (Ø50 mm) optic into the carriage, and use the retaining ring to secure it.

Using a lens with a substrate or AR coating that does not transmit the wavelength of your LED is not recommended. Deep UV LEDs (wavelengths ≤ 340 nm) require a lens fabricated from UV Fused Silica, since many standard varieties of glass do not transmit below 350 nm. IR LEDs that emit at wavelengths ≥ 1050 nm can be collimated using an uncoated condenser lens, such as the Ø50 mm ACL50832U which has a wavelength range of 380 - 2100 nm.

Click for Details

Installation of a collimation adapter to a mounted LED using the SM2T2 and SM1A2 thread adapters. The same setup can be used to attach the collimation adapter to the LEDs above that use a Ø57.0 mm housing.
  • AR-Coated Aspheric Lens with Low f/# (Approximately 0.8)
  • Compatible with Select Leica, Nikon, Olympus, or Zeiss Microscopes
  • Easily Adjust Beam Collimation / Focus
  • Requires SM2T2 Coupler and SM1A2 Adapter (Each Sold Separately) when Used with the LEDs Above

Thorlabs offers collimation adapters with Ø50 mm AR-coated aspheric condenser lenses (EFL: 40 mm) for collimating the output from the mounted LEDs sold above. Two AR coating ranges (350 - 700 nm and 650 - 1050 nm) and four different collimator housings are available. Each housing is designed with a dovetail or bayonet mount to mate to the illumination port on selected Olympus*, Leica, Nikon, or Zeiss microscopes. Compatible microscopes are listed in the Collimation Adapter Selection Guide table below.

Using an adapter with a substrate or AR coating that does not transmit the wavelength of your LED is not recommended. Deep UV LEDs (M265L3, M280L3, and M340L3) require a lens fabricated from UV Fused Silica, since many standard varieties of glass do not transmit below 350 nm. IR LEDs that emit beyond 1050 nm (M1200L3, M1300L3, M1450L3, and M1550L3) can be collimated using an uncoated condenser lens; the ACL5040U is an uncoated version of the Ø50 mm lenses used in the collimation packages below that has a wavelength range of 380 - 2100 nm. See the Collimation Adapter tab in the info icons above for additional collimation options.

The LED sources described above can be fitted to the collimators by using an SM2T2 Coupler and SM1A2 Adapter (not included) as shown in the image at right. This assembly can be easily adapted to different LED sources by unscrewing the LED housing.

*Please note that due to the optical design of the transmitted lamphouse port of the BX and IX microscopes, it may be necessary to purchase a separate adapter, which is available from Olympus.
