New high output tuneable light source… The Hyperchromator

An efficient monochromator utilising the high-brightness Energetiq EQ-99X LDLS Laser Driven Light Source (right) has been developed by Mountain Photonics, and was recently demonstrated on our booth at Photonics West.

The Hyperchromator uses an off-axis parabolic mirror to focus the broadband light generated by the small plasma spot of the LDLS™ directly onto a diffraction grating, and then off a second mirror to an exit port.

As no entrance slit is used, the optical efficiency of the system is very high – typically f/1.5 or f/2, depending on the required resolution or throughput. A white light bypass output is also available.

The output port has been designed to allow for a multitude of illumination or light coupling options. By using standard catalogue components, the Hyperchromator can be easily integrated into an application.

The Hyperchromator is controlled via USB/RS-232 and an intuitive GUI, with LabVIEW™ and other software libraries supported.

Existing owners of an Energetiq EQ-99X LDLS™ can add tuneability by purchasing the Hyperchromator unit alone.

Please contact us for further details, or download the datasheet.

New High Brightness Tunable Broadband Light Source

Energetiq‘s new Laser-Driven Tunable Light Source (LDTLS™) is a compact, fully integrated and highly stable tunable broadband light source based on their proven Laser-Driven Light Source (LDLS™) technology. The LDTLS™ utilises the EQ-77 LDLS™ source and features the highest brightness and output flux available in a tunable broadband product.

The water-cooled LDTLS™ offers an extremely long lifetime (approximately 9000 hours between bulb changes) for low cost of ownership. It has high stability, very low noise, and is coupled with a precision high-performance monochromator for accurate wavelength selection and repeatable light output across the range of 300 to 1100 nm.

The spectral resolution can be customised for application specific purposes and ranges in bandwidth from 1 to 10 nm. The fibre coupled output is both flexible and convenient for delivering wavelength selected light to precisely where it is needed. OEMs, please contact us for more information.
