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.

The International Conference on Circular Dichroism has been given a new name as it incorporates the emerging techniques of Chiroptical Spectroscopy such as vibrational CD, Raman Optical Activity and associated applications into the field.
Elliot Scientific will be joined by innovative illumination company Energetiq at the exhibition to demonstrate the EQ-99 laser-driven plasma-based light source that’s been specifically designed for spectroscopic and microscopy applications. The revolutionary technology used in this lamp, called LDLS™, 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 bulbs.
To see the EQ-99 in action, join us at CD2011 in Oxford from Monday 25th to Wednesday 27th July 2011. Alternatively, please contact us for more info.
