Model N550


The NewDEL™ VIS fiber-coupled LED product group encompasses eight narrowband sources with center wavelengths ranging from 425 nm to 680 nm. The collection includes phosphor-coated green and amber LEDs to address the so-called green gap problem – the lack of a high efficacy semiconductor materials system for the green-yellow spectral region.


  • Central wavelength: 550 nm
  • FWHM: 80 nm (phosphor coated)
  • Recommended fiber patch cable: FP63P, High NA Plastic Optical Fiber, NA 0.63
    • Optical power emitted (typical maximum): 170 mW
  • SMA905 connector (FC option upon request)


  • Fluorescence excitation of TRITC and OFPs
  • Photocatalytic conversion of methane to methanol
  • Photocatalytic syngas synthesis from CO2 photoreduction
  • Reversible hydrogel photopatterning
  • Optogenetics activation of Archaerhodopsin (ArchT.)
