Woburn, MA, November 29, 2016– Energetiq Technology, a world leader in high brightness, broadband light sources for advanced technology applications, introduces the 5th generation, ultra-bright, Laser-Driven Light Source, the EQ-77, at the MRS Fall Exhibit 2016.

Based on the highly successful Laser-Driven Light Source (LDLS™) technology, the EQ-77 offers higher radiance and irradiance from a truly broadband white light source. The EQ-77 features a compact lamp house, with clean construction that ensures long life and ultimate stability. With a wavelength range from 170nm in the deep ultraviolet to >2µm in the near infrared, and a choice of dual-beam output or a single-beam output with retro-reflector, the EQ-77 is flexible for a broad variety of applications.

“The EQ-77 is the most advanced DUV-NIR light source on the market today,” said Debbie Gustafson, CEO of Energetiq. “As our 5th-generation of LDLS™, it incorporates our latest technologies to deliver the ultimate in stable, long-life, broadband, ultra-bright performance for our customers in semiconductor and optical sensor metrology, advanced spectroscopy, photo emission and imaging applications.”

EQ-77 LDLS Features:

  • Higher spectral radiance: Greater than 40mW/mm2.sr.nm
  • Compact, ultra-clean lamp house with integrated laser
  • Flexible optical interface: dual beam or enhanced output single beam
  • Designed for 24/7/365 operation
  • Low noise, <0.1% (typ.)


The EQ-77 can be seen on Booth 709 at the MRS Fall Exhibit 2016, November 29 – December 1.

Energetiq’s LDLS™ products are cutting edge light sources that produce extreme high brightness over a broad spectral range, from 170nm to>2µm (UV-Vis-NIR). Combined with 10X the lifetime of traditional xenon and deuterium lamps, the LDLS products enable higher performance metrology, spectroscopy, and imaging applications at lower cost of ownership.

The LDLS series received the prestigious R & D 100 Award in 2011 for its technological significance, and a 2011 Prism Award for Photonics Innovation.
