Sciencetech offers light sources from UV to Infrared. A complete light source for research typically includes the lamp mounted in a housing with condensing/coupling optics, a power supply and all the necessary cables and hardware. For spectroscopic application, a DC stabilized power supply is required. Arc sources also include a stand alone igniter to break down the gas and establish the plasma discharge. A full line of accessories such as light condensers and collimators, filters, optical feedback units output stabilization and light shutters are available.
Arc lamps contain plasma confined in quartz, producing radiation from 200nm to 2.5µm. With a strong ultraviolet output and a small emitting plasma volume, their brightness in the visible region is one order of magnitude higher than QTH sources. Ideal for illuminating small targets.
Deuterium (D2) sources are ideal for UV spectroscopy since they have a high ultraviolet output with little visible and infrared emission. UV grade fused silica envelopes can also be used, instead of the standard UV glass envelope, for missions below 180 nm.
Light from QTH lamps is emitted by a heated filament. The filament is enclosed in a quartz envelope filled with gases. The spectral distribution is close to that of a blackbody curve with a colour temperature of approximately 3000°K. QTH lamps have a useful spectral output from 300nm to 2.7µm.
Coupling our capabilities in light source manufacture and spectroscopy allows us to manufacture complete systems such as our Sciencetech Tunable Light Source.
Sciencetech offers a line of calibration pen lamps, as well as additional adjustable mounts.
Sciencetech offers both IT emitter housing Elliptical Reflector or Parabolic Reflector.
Our expertise extends to Sciencetech Solar Simulators which are broad band light sources, featuring specific spectral and radiant intensity properties.
