Ocean Optics Diffuse Reflectance Probe Provides Measurement Consistency
DR-Probe removes localized variance
The Ocean Optics Diffuse Reflectance Probe (DR-Probe) measures 45° diffuse reflectance, enhancing UV-Vis and NIR spectroscopy results. This sampling tool removes localized variance in reflectance measurements. It is ideal for applications such as color analysis, material identification and quality monitoring of foods.
The DR-Probe integrates a light source and collection optics into one unit to measure 45° diffuse reflectance. With the probe’s collection optics fixed in place relative to the light source, the measurement geometry is constant. An included standoff accessory ensures a consistent 40 mm focal length between the probe and the sample. Sampling uniformity increases the reliability and consistency of measurement results.
The DR-Probe has rugged, all-metal construction for durability in the lab or field. Its 6W tungsten halogen bulb has a 10,000-hour lifetime. Compatible with Ocean Optics Visible and NIR spectrometers and accessories, the DR-Probe integrates seamlessly into experimental setups.
