Imaging Systems

Our imaging products enable real-time visualisation of processes that standard techniques struggle to capture. Ultra-fast, high-powered illumination opens the door to high-speed imaging applications. 

When Image Quality Counts

Have you been struggling to capture high-quality images of your process or application? Our imaging illumination and particle sizing systems provide great advantages. Short-pulse duration of an ultra-bright light source enables Oxford Lasers’ systems to provide you with high-quality, real-time visualisation of your processes. 

From droplet, particle and bubble size measurements for spray characterisation with our VisiSize series (particle size, shape and velocity) to laser illumination for high-speed imaging applications including bright and energetic events from our FireFLY and FireBIRD series – Oxford Lasers has a range of products to meet your project requirements.

Particle Sizing & Characterisation Systems

Our systems’ innovation extends to our integral VisiSize software providing instantaneous visualisation of droplet, particle and bubble measurements.  

Portable Spray Characterisation

VisiSize P15+

The most compact of the VisiSize range, the portable VisiSize P15+ is a complete integrated droplet and particle size measurement tool for in-field or in-lab use. It provides real-time analysis of size, shape and velocity of particles down to 10μm. 

  • Compact: Fully portable system
  • Protected: Waterproof enclosure
  • Versatile: Easy to use inside or outside
  • Safe: LED non-laser light source
  • Integral Software: VisiSize software to produce real-time visualisation of your particle and droplet characterisation
Oxford Lasers VisiSize N60 particle sizing system
Ultra-Fast Spray Analysis System

VisiSize N60

High-performance system, the VisiSize N60 is a dedicated particle and droplet measurement tool for evaluation of more challenging sprays at high density and ultrafast speeds up to Mach 3. One of our biggest sizing systems, the VisiSize N60 provides real-time size, shape, velocity and direction analysis of particles down to 2μm.
  • Robust: Complete system for high-velocity, high density or high volume sprays
  • Functional: Copes with volatile sprays in extreme environments
  • Safe: Class 1 laser-safe system
  • Integral Software: VisiSize software  to produce real-time visualisation of your particle and droplet characterisation
Oxford Lasers N60maX particle sizing system
Extended Working Distance

VisiSize N60maX

With longer distance capabilities than the VisiSize N60, the N60maX is a high-performance, ultra-fast particle and droplet measurement system with all the capabilities of N60 to analyse particles down to 2μm at a working distance of >165mm.
  • Robust: Complete system for fast moving sprays
  • Functional: Copes with volatile sprays in extreme environments
  • Safe: Class 1 laser-safe system
  • Integral Software: VisiSize software  to produce real-time visualisation of your particle and droplet characterisation

Laser Illumination Systems for High-Speed Imaging

Our high-performance laser-based illumination technology enables you to see what was previously hidden. With maximum power at a single wavelength (808nm), the short-pulsed illumination from our lasers give you the ability to capture high-quality images of fast-moving particles without blur. The intensity of our lasers even allow you to see through bright and energetic events for capturing images of processes too bright for conventional imaging techniques. 

Oxford Lasers FireFLY500 laser illumination system
Compact 500W series

FireFLY Series

The FireFLY is our compact 500W laser series that has been designed as a good all-around laser illumination source for high-speed imaging applications. With two models, there are many options for accessories and capability for light-sheet applications. The FireFLY is an easy-to-use all rounder.

  • Compact: Small and lightweight unit
  • Robust: Machined aluminium case
  • Splash-proof: Water resistant housing
  • Versatile: Easily integrated with options for flexible liquid light guide, and large and small area diffusers to accommodate various imaging environments and requirements.
Liquid Light Guide (LLG) Flexibility

FireBIRD LLG

The FireBIRD LLG is our high power (1000W) laser designed for a range of high-speed imaging applications for blur-free images. The LLG model has a flexible, liquid light guide attached to the illumination head. This model is a good choice when flexibility of positioning the imaging and illumination equipment are needed.
