High-power xenon source for spectroscopy by Ocean Optics

June 25, 2013
The HPX-2000-HP-DUV xenon light source from Ocean Optics is a 75 W short-arc lamp for UV-visible absorbance spectroscopy that provides continuous spectral output from 185 to 2000 nm and up to 2,000 hours of bulb life.

The HPX-2000-HP-DUV xenon light source from Ocean Optics (Dunedin, FL) is a 75 W short-arc lamp for UV-visible absorbance spectroscopy that provides continuous spectral output from 185 to 2000 nm and up to 2,000 hours of bulb life. An integrated shutter enables dark measurements and other adjustments without affecting lamp stability or compromising experiment integrity. Adding an external filtering option to the lamp, such as the company's CUV-FL-DA direct-attach cuvette holder, yields a broadband excitation source for fluorescence.

HPX-2000-HP-DUV High Power Xenon Source for Spectroscopy

Ocean Optics’ continuous wave xenon source has response from 185-2000 nm

Dunedin, FL – The HPX-2000-HP-DUV Xenon Light Source is a powerful, 75-watt short-arc lamp ideal for UV-Vis absorbance spectroscopy and other applications where a high-intensity lamp is necessary. The lamp provides continuous spectral output from 185-2000 nm and has up to 2,000 hours of bulb life.

The HPX-2000-HP-DUV features an integrated shutter that can be controlled via a switch on the front panel or a TTL signal over the rear panel, so that taking dark measurements and making other adjustments does not affect lamp stability or compromise experiment integrity. By adding an external filtering option such as an Ocean Optics CUV-FL-DA direct-attach cuvette holder, the HPX-2000-HP-DUV becomes a convenient broadband excitation source for fluorescence.

The output intensity of the HPX-2000-DUV over the entire 185-2000 nm range is 3.5x-4x higher than the output intensity of standard xenon sources. Optimum warm-up time is 40-60 minutes and drift is
