A revolutionary single-light source technology   

Energetiq® LDLS™ - Laser-Driven Light Sources   

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 - see video below.
 
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 series of Laser-Driven Light Sources that 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.
 
And now the range has been further extended with the introduction of Energetiq's new LDTLS™ - a Laser-Driven Tuneable Light Source

Broadband Light Sources

LDLS™ EQ-77
Extreme High Brightness Broadband Light Source

  • Extreme high brightness from 170 to 2100 nm
  • Dual-beam output with single beam option
  • Excellent spatial & power stability
  • Electrodeless operation for long life & reduced operating costs
  • Replaces multiple lamp systems (2H/Tungsten/Xenon Arc)

The EQ-77 is an extremely bright (Up to 4x that of the EQ-99 below) broadband light source that is specifically designed for critical spectroscopy and imaging applications. The EQ-77 offers the highest radiance and irradiance available in a truly broadband white light source with a choice of dual-beam output or a single-beam output with retro-reflector. The EQ-77's superior spatial and power stability ensures highly repeatable measurements are delivered by a variety of applications in the life and materials sciences, and the proprietary laser-driven bulb technology* is ideal for applications requiring a high brightness lamp with ultra-long life.

LDLS™ EQ-99X
Compact, Economical High Brightness Broadband Light Source

  • CW laser plasma discharge eliminates electrodes for long life
  • Very high brightness from 170 nm to IR
  • Excellent spatial & short/long-term power stability
  • Replaces multiple lamp systems (2H/Tungsten/Xenon Arc)

The compact LDLS EQ-99X is a high brightness, high stability broadband source that is specifically designed for next generation HPLC, advanced microscopy, and other demanding imaging and spectroscopy applications. The EQ-99X offers excellent spatial and power stability for highly repeatable measurements across the broad spectrum. Utilising a proprietary laser-driven bulb technology*, the EQ-99X is ideal for applications requiring ultra-long lamp life.

  Fibre Coupled Option: EQ-99XFC

  • SMA fibre-coupled output for ease of use
  • Very high brightness from 170 to 2100 nm
  • Electrodeless operation for long life & reduced operating costs

The LDLS EQ-99XFC is similar to the LDLS EQ-99, but has integrated collection optics that allow greater ease of use for those needing a fibre connection. The high performance ellipsoidal collector ensures that the ultra-high brightness light and power stability are maintained across the broad spectrum, from 170 to 2100 nm, and efficiently coupled into small diameter optical fibres.

  Calibrated Option: LDLS™ EQ-99CAL

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.

LDLS™ EQ-400
Ultra High Radiance Broadband Light Source

  • Extreme high brightness from UV to NIR: 170–2100 nm
  • Radiance >100 mW/mm2.sr.nm
  • Very low noise and excellent spatial stability
  • Compact, water-cooled, and electrodeless
  • Dual beam output, or higher-output single-beam

Continuing the development of the highly successful Laser-Driven Light Source (LDLS) technology, Energetiq's EQ-400 offers the highest radiance and irradiance available in a truly broadband white light source. The EQ-400 features a compact lamp house, with clean construction that ensures long life and ultimate stability. With a 170 to 2100 nm wavelength range, and a choice of source dual-beam output or a single-beam output with retro-reflector, the EQ-400 is flexible for a broad variety of applications.
