Smart Controller for Laser-Driven Light Sources
Energetiq Technology, Inc.
WOBURN, Mass., Feb. 5, 2013 — Energetiq Technology is introducing a smart controller for its laser-driven light sources (LDLS) at Photonics West 2013.
Developed for the EQ-99 series LDLS, the EQ-99 Manager enhances functionality by adding a USB interface and an advanced shutter control system for greater integration and advanced control.
The shutter control system offers a range of shutter speeds and operation modes. The smart controller is optimized to drive the company’s new EQ-99 Shutter, which may be integrated into the window of the EQ-99 light source or mounted to an optical bench.
The EQ-99 Manager may be used with the EQ-99 high-brightness light source, the EQ-99FC high-brightness light source with fiber-coupled output and the EQ-99CAL calibration light source.
The LDLS products are single-light sources that produce high brightness over a broad spectral range, from 170 nm through the visible and beyond. With 10 times the lifetime of traditional xenon and deuterium lamps, the LDLS products enable higher-performance spectroscopy and imaging applications.
