Laser-Driven Light Sources (LDLS™)

High Brightness, Long Life and Broadband

Researchers using light for imaging and analytical spectroscopy in a variety of applicationsin the life sciences and materials sciences need light sources capable of providing extremelyhigh brightness across a broad wavelength range. Traditionally, multiple lamps (Tungsten/Halogen, Xenon-arc, Deuterium) have been used to cover this broad spectral range.However, combining multiple lamps is costly and optically inefficient, and the use of electrodeswithin these lamps limits their ability to achieve the high brightness or power needed for themost demanding applications. Furthermore, traditional electrode-driven light sources haveshort life, need to be changed frequently, and during their life the lamp output declinesconstantly. To address this problem, Energetiq has developed a revolutionary single-lightsource technology called the LDLS™ Laser-Driven Light Source that enables extreme highbrightness over a broad spectral range, from 170nm through visible and beyond, combinedwith lifetimes an order of magnitude longer than traditional lamps.


Light Source Comparison

Energetiq's innovative LDLS technology uses a CW laser to directly heat a Xenon plasma to the high temperatures necessary for efficient deep ultraviolet production. In traditional approaches such as arc and deuterium lamps, the brightness, UV power, and lamp lifetime are limited by the use of electrodes to couple power to the plasma. The electrodeless LDLS technology creates small, high brightness plasma that allows efficient light collection, broad spectral range from the deepest UV through visible and beyond, and long lamp life.
