The EQ-400 offers the highest radiance and irradiance available in a truly broadband white light source


Woburn, MA, June 15th, 2015 – Energetiq Technology, a world leader in high brightness light sources for advanced technology applications, introduces the EQ-400 high power, ultra-bright Laser-Driven Light Source (LDLS™) at Laser World of Photonics in Munich.

Based on the highly successful Laser-Driven Light Source (LDLS) technology, the 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 170nm-2100nm 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

"The EQ-400 is the most advanced DUV-NIR light source on the market today," said Paul Blackborow, 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."

EQ-400 LDLS Features:

  • High spectral radiance: Greater than 100mW/mm2.sr.nm from 100µm aperture
  • Spectral power: More than 10mW/nm from a 500µm aperture
  • Very low noise: Better than 0.02%
  • Small plasma: 300µm x 800µm FWHM


The EQ-400 can be seen on Booth 281 in Hall B2 at the Munich Messe from June 22-25, 2015.

Energetiq's LDLS products are cutting edge light sources that produce extreme high brightness over a broad spectral range, from 170nm to 2100nm (UV-Vis-NIR). Combined with 10X the lifetime of traditional xenon and deuterium lamps, the LDLS products enable higher performance spectroscopy or 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.
