Energetiq Technology Inc. has announced an addition to its laser-driven light source family. The EQ-99FC uses an integrated high-performance ellipsoidal collector to deliver ultrahigh-brightness UV/VIS/NIR light (170 to 2100 nm) to a standard single-mode adapter fiber coupling with a numerical aperture of 0.22. Its ability to cover such a broad spectrum makes it an economical and higher-performing alternative to traditional xenon-arc, halogen, tungsten or deuterium lamps. Its integrated high-efficiency collection optic delivers maximum brightness, while providing greater ease of use. The technology provides ultralong lamp life, according to the company. Applications include imaging and microscope illumination.
