- Extra wide spectral range
- Ultra high brightness
- High stability
- Long lifetime


In XWS sources, plasma emits light due to the interaction between a continuous energy input from a laser and the gas medium used (optical discharge). These light sources have been developed as a replacement for traditional gas discharge lamps (Xenon, Deuterium, Tungsten, etc.) and LEDs. Compared to these, XWS sources have a wider spectral range and higher spectral brightness.


Spectral range:

  • from 180 to 2500 nm (UV configuration)

  •  from 240 to 2500 nm (Ozone-free configuration)

  • Spectral brightness (450-500 nm): 34 mW/(mm^2×sr×nm)

  • Laser power input: 65 W

  • Full output power of source: XWS-65: 40 W

  •  Emitting body source dimensions: 250×400 μm

  • lifetime: up to 10,000 hours

  •  temporal and spatial stability: RMS 0.25%

  •  lamp medium: Xenon

  • light source head: 130×110×74 mm

  • driver unit: 351×172×232 mm

  •  output aperture (by default): 24 mm

  •  C-mount for attaching optics

  • power input via fiber

  •  optional – fiber coupling

Optional configurations:​

  • UV or Ozon free

  •  Free space or fiber coupled

  • Absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy

  • Microscopy, including confocal and fluorescence

  • Diagnostics systems in microelectronics (contamination and defect control)

  • Thin-film and critical dimension (CD) metrology

  •  Detectors in chromatography, microfluidics, lab-on-a-chip, droplet spectrometers, cytofluorimeters, etc.

  • Biomedical applications (photodynamic therapy, etc.)

  • Additive technologies (photopolymerisation)

  • Artificial sunlight systems (test systems, illumination, etc.)
