HANAU, Germany, Feb. 24, 2011 — Heraeus Noblelight GmbH has unveiled the D2plus deuterium lamps that produce high stability and low optical noise due to a combination of a new advanced design and proprietary enhanced lifetime performance (ELP) technology.
The next-generation deuterium lamps are a new concept that instrument manufacturers can design into their systems for higher throughput and precision analytical results. OEM customers benefit from the company’s experience with UV/quartz glass and coatings, and metals and ceramics.
Deuterium lamps are now available with 0.5- and 1-mm apertures with a minimum lifetime of 2000 h for UV-VIS spectrophotometers, high-performance liquid chromatography and ultrahigh-performance liquid chromatography instruments.
The ELP technology ensures 50% more initial intensity and greater than two times the residual intensity compared to conventional deuterium lamps, according to the company. Extensive testing of the light sources guarantees that they meet the specifications required to yield reliable and reproducible performance for demanding applications.
