Traditional calibration sources for radiometric calibration, such as Deuterium, Quartz Tungsten Halogen, and Xenon-arc, all have limitations in spectral range. No single source covers the full UV-Visible range from 200 to 800 nm with output at comparable levels across that spectrum. In addition, traditional sources require recalibration after 100 hours or less of use and lamp replacement typically after 500 hours.
With its revolutionary Laser-Driven Light Source™ (LDLS), Energetiq offers a calibration solution that addresses these limitations and provides a single, broadband, high brightness source for radiometric calibration. The EQ-99CAL combines radiometric performance with long life, longer recalibration intervals, and low cost of ownership. Certification is from the UK’s respected National Physical Laboratory (NPL).
The Energetiq® LDLS™ uses a laser activated plasma to generate light without electrodes to enable extreme high brightness over a broad spectral range, from 170 nm through to visible and beyond, combined with lifetimes an order of magnitude longer than traditional lamps.
