Enhanced Laser-Driven Light Sources

WOBURN, Mass., Jan. 12, 2012 — Energetiq Technology Inc. has announced that customers can now choose between a standard quartz bulb and an ozone-free quartz bulb on the LDLS EQ-99 and EQ-99FC light source products. This enhancement allows the user to tailor the spectral range to a particular application while still maintaining the high brightness and long lamp life for which the LDLS products are known.
The standard synthetic quartz bulb produces light across the entire spectrum from 170 nm through the visible and into the infrared. The new ozone-free quartz bulb cuts off light below 250 nm, where ozone is produced, optimizing the spectrum for those applications where operation in the deep-UV is not necessary. The ozone-free bulb produces a broadband spectrum from 250 to 2100 nm with the same brightness across that range as that produced by the standard synthetic quartz bulb, and offers the same long lamp life.
Electrodeless in operation, the company’s laser-driven technology in the EQ-99 and EQ-99FC provides ultralong lamp life — greater than 10 times the lifetime of traditional electrode-driven lamps — as well as a broad spectral range with high brightness.
