New High Brightness White Light Fibre Coupled Light Source from Prizmatix

The HB-FC-White high-brightness fibre-coupled light sources from Prizmatix are designed especially for OEM illumination applications in life science instrumentation, machine vision.

The HB-FC-White is a self-contained light source that includes all the necessary driver electronics and a thermal management system – no special controller box is required to operate the unit if used at the preset power.

  • Single chip long-life LED
  • High brightness cool-white light
  • High power from a small core fibre
  • Isolated TTL and analogue input
  • Optional fast TTL switching (200 ns)
  • Low optical noise
  • Optional remote control
  • Optional USB or RS-232 control
  • For OEMS:
    • Simple integration
    • I²C remote control protocol

Typical optical power from distal end of 1 m fibre:

Fibre Type Fibre Core Fibre NA Output Power
Polymer 1000 µm 0.63 460 mW
Polymer 500 µm 0.63 245 mW
Glass 250 µm 0.66 110 mW
Silica 50 µm 0.2 0.5 mW

Energetiq® EQ-99CAL Calibrated Laser-Driven Light Source Launched

EQ-99 LDLS Lamp Unit

EQ-99 LDLS Lamp UnitTraditional 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.

Energetiq® Update LDLS™ Series Datasheets

EQ-99 LDLS Lamp Unit

EQ-99 LDLS Lamp Unit Energetiq® have released a new set of  datasheets for their award-winning revolutionary LDLS™ – Laser-Driven Light Source –  technology that’s  available through Elliot Scientific.  Enabling extreme high brightness over a broad spectral range, Energetiq® lamps use laser activated plasma to generate light without electrodes.

Already established in the Semiconductor sector, Lifescience researchers are now benefiting from these point light sources that can offer up to 10x the intensity of traditional lamps, longer working lives, and therefore lower cost of ownership in the long term.

Energetiq® EQ-99 LDLS™ Laser-Driven Light Source Wins 2011 Prism Award

Plasma-based light sources for nanoscale applications are a new way forward in illumination technology…

Researchers using light for imaging and analytical spectroscopy in a variety of applications in the life sciences and materials sciences need light sources capable of providing extremely high brightness across a broad wavelength range.

Traditionally, multiple lamp systems (Tungsten/Halogen, Xenon-arc, Deuterium) have been used to cover this range, but this is costly and optically inefficient. The use of electrodes within these lamps also reduces their operating life, hampers their brightness – with output declining over time – and limits the power needed for the most demanding applications.

To address this problem, Energetiq® has developed a revolutionary single-light source technology called the LDLS™, a Laser-Driven Light Source available through Elliot Scientific, that enables 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.

SPIE and Laurin Publishing awarded a 2011 Prism Award for Photonics Innovation in the product category of Other Light Sources to Energetiq® for the EQ-99.  The Prism Awards are an annual competition that recognise the best in innovative technology within the multi-billion dollar business of optics and photonics. A panel of independent judges, acknowledged as experts in their respective fields, selected the winners from more than 80 entries.

Energetiq® lamps use laser activated plasma to generate light without electrodes. Already established in the Semiconductor sector, the Life Sciences are yet to benefit from these point light sources that can offer up to 10x the intensity of traditional lamps, longer working lives and therefore lower cost of ownership in the long term.
