September 15, 2016

Princeton Instruments is pleased to announce a major upgrade to its acclaimed LightField software with support for the Windows 10 operating system. In addition, it supports the recently launched SOPHIA family of deep-cooled, multi-port CCD cameras and next generation ProEM EMCCD cameras. Princeton Instruments has drawn upon its decades of application expertise and close interactions with researchers around the world to create LightField scientific imaging and spectroscopy software. Destined to become a benchmark software tool in academic and industrial R&D settings, LightField allows users to take full advantage of award winning Princeton Instruments cameras and spectrographs.

LightField leads the industry with hundreds of enhancements and exclusive features including an all-new math engine for analyzing 64-bit data in real-time, an improved SmartSearch feature that directs users to the controls they want as they are typing, interactive virtual optical bench for conveniently managing multiple experiment setups, automatic export of data in a wide variety of popular formats. Now, LightField even allows seamless integration of hardware controls and direct data acquisition into National Instruments’ LabVIEW® and MathWorks’ MATLAB®.

LightField supports all the latest Princeton Instruments hardware including IntelliCal spectral calibration light sources. The latter along with LightField’s fully automated point-by-point wavelength and intensity calibration, offers for up to 10x improvement in wavelength accuracy and NIST traceable, instrument independent intensity data.  For time-resolved imaging and spectroscopy applications, it presents users with intuitive oscilloscope-like timing interface to PI-MAX4 ICCD cameras for easy synchronization and gating controls.
