The low cost R&D tool for investigating the applicability of Pulsed Light for new and emerging applications.
The tool that researchers, scientists and engineers have been looking for is here. An easy-to-use photonic system developed by XENON that will open new doors and lead to new discoveries.
The power of Pulsed Light
In virtually all disciplines of science and technology there are applications which demand precise delivery of energy.
One often neglected energy delivery mechanism is that of high-intensity Pulsed Light. At present the most familiar example of this is the pulsed laser. Lasers, however, are not ideally matched to the requirements of many applications. Laser light is monochromatic and highly coherent, which can cause interference effects and speckle. Moreover, while the intensity of a narrow beam is high, expanding the beam to cover the item being irradiated substantially reduces the intensity. For most applications, it is desirable to have a source with a broad emission spectrum, so as not to be limited by materials with specific absorption characteristics.
Because XENON sources generate light whose spectrum extends from the deep UV to the near IR, with peak pulse powers that can often be measured in Megawatts, these sources are ideally suited to perform such tasks as breaking chemical bonds, sintering, ablating or sterilizing. The high peak powers generated by XENON’s production-level systems are possible because of tight control of the pulse durations. These can be varied from a few microseconds to milliseconds.
Until now there was no practical method of generating Pulsed Light of this intensity with a low-cost R&D tool that was safe, compact and versatile. XENON, with over 50 years of experience in the Pulsed Light industry, has developed a system to address these needs. This R&D-centric solution allows novel innovations by harnessing a technology that was previously either too inflexible or cost prohibitive.
As a researcher, the advantage of having the X-1100 is that the next discovery can be yours.
