Chromatiq Spectral Engine™

High-Fidelity Spectrum Matching


Match Any Light Spectrum, or Design Your Own

The Chromatiq Spectral Engine™ (CSE) is a sophisticated light source capable of matching real-world lighting conditions, emulating illuminant standards, and creating custom spectra.

The CSE offers unparalleled spectrum match accuracy as well as repeatability and speed when switching between spectra to optimize optical testing and calibration procedures in the production environment.

The CSE is built around the high radiance and stability of the Laser-Driven Light Source (LDLS™). The performance of the LDLS, combined with the innovative optical design of the CSE system, enables consistent high-fidelity spectrum matching, rapid switching between selected spectra, and stable color content at various intensities. These attributes support the accurate, repeatable, and efficient production of high-end color and image sensors.
