Prototyping and Engineering

Knight Photonics manufactures optical instruments, fibre optic sensors and devices; scientific and imaging light sources, non-standard sampling cells and flow cells. We are also experienced at completing the integration of standard products by manufacturing items to complete a system solution. Equipment conversions and system packaging for adverse environments, such as found in oceanography or hazardous areas are frequently undertaken.

We are always interested in receiving inquiries for the development of items ranging from small items to complete fully designed systems.

Electro-optics.   Analytical sensors.


Calibration Services

We provide several calibration and referencing facilities for spectral, radiometric and photometric measurement.

These include:

Wavelength calibration for Ultra Violet, Visible and Near Infra Red.
Spectral region 180nm to 2,500nm.
Standardised light sources to enable calibration for absolute spectral intensity measurements in the range 200 -1095 nm. This is traceable to a national standard; e.g. NIST.
Referencing standards for reflectance, Colour, fluorescence and Raman. Referencing filters for spectrophotometers.
Calibrated instrumentation for radiometic and photometric measurements of LEDs ,OLEDs, and light sources in general.
UVA, UVB, UVC Radiometry Calibrated instrumentation for solar measurement with conformance optics for light collection, and goniometric facilities for Thermopiles.
Black and grey body sources.
