SphereOptics GmbH was established 2003 along with two partner companies in the United States and France, as well as with a global network of representatives. Because of the merger between Labsphere Inc. andh SphereOptics LLC in the US beginning of 2010 we can extensively serve the market with optical measurement systems and a wide range of integrating spheres, materials and standards for the measurement of diffuse reflectance. We also offer an extensive calibration service to our customers.
We are specialized on the production, refining and calibration of materials and standards for diffuse transmission and reflectance. These are highly pure sintered PTFE products and are sold under the trademark Zenith. Zenith Polymer is the preferred material in the aerospace industry, and in spectroscopy and optical laboratories. For high quality integrating spheres and homogeneous light sources, sintered, porous PTFE is the material of choice.
Labsphere Inc., USA , develops and produces standardized as well as customized products in the field of radiometric and photometric applications, which match the requirements of product areas like aerospace, car industry, medical technology and optical industry.
In order to extend the product range of optical measurement and characterizing systems, in 2005 SphereOptics GmbH has been named as exclusive representative of the American company Radiant Imaging Inc., which is world leader in CCD based colorimeter systems for the characterization of light sources, LED“s and displays.
There are specific software packages for almost all applications in the characterization of modern light sources and for the goniometric analysis.
In 2006 the representation of ASD Analytical Spectral Devices Inc. for the German speaking countries has been added. Their FieldSpec model is a portable spectrometer for the spectral remote sensing and their application. In the LabSpec configuration the systems are well suitable for online-analysis in laboratory and production applications.
For user-specific solutions in almost every range of light measurement, SphereOptics is a competent contact and we assure individuality and flexibility to offer solutions for all areas of light measurement.
Since June 2011 we additionally took over the representation of NEO, one of the market leader in the area of hyperspectral imagings, for the German speaking countries, as well as the European Eastern countries.
