Heraeus Noblelight GmbH’s D2plus deuterium lamps produce high stability and low optical noise in 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 with conventional deuterium lamps, according to the company.
