Laser-Driven Light Sources offer choice of spectral range.

Press Release Summary:

Offering choice of standard quartz bulb or ozone-free quartz bulb, LDLS(TM) EQ-99 and EQ-99FC Electrodeless Light Sources allow user to tailor spectral range to particular application. Standard synthetic quartz bulb produces light across entire spectrum from 170 nm through visible and into infrared, while ozone-free bulb produces broadband spectrum from 250-2100 nm for applications where operation in deep UV is not necessary.

Energetiq Enhances Laser-Driven Light Sources with Choice of Spectral Range

WOBURN, Mass., -- Energetiq Technology, Inc., a developer and manufacturer of ultrahigh-brightness, broadband light sources for advanced technology applications, today announced that customers are now able to choose between a standard quartz bulb or an ozone-free quartz bulb on either the LDLS(TM) EQ-99 or EQ-99FC light source products. This enhancement allows the user to tailor the spectral range to their particular application while still maintaining the high brightness and long lamp life for which the LDLS products are renowned.

The standard synthetic quartz bulb produces light across the entire spectrum from 170nm through visible and into the infrared. The new ozone-free quartz bulb cuts off light below 250nm where ozone is produced, optimizing the spectrum for those applications where operation in the deep UV is not necessary. The new ozone-free bulb produces a broadband spectrum from 250nm to 2100nm with the same brightness across that range as the standard synthetic quartz bulb, and offers the same long lamp life.

Electrodeless in operation, Energetiq's laser-driven technology in the EQ-99 and EQ-99FC provides ultra-long lamp life - greater than ten times the lifetime of traditional electrode-driven lamps - as well as the broadest spectral range with the highest brightness of any other light source available.

The entire Energetiq LDLS product family will be on display at SPIE Photonics West and BiOS in San Francisco, January 21-25, 2012.
