Light Modulators

Light modulators are devices used to change and interrupt light rays regularly or irregularly. The light modulator, which can perform many functions in scientific research and technological applications, is one of the prominent applications in thermal cameras to provide controlled change of the radiation falling on the detector. ASENTEK designs and manufactures various opto-mechanical light modulators.
