Avantes introduces Direct Attached Cuvette Holder with Attenuator
CUV-DHC-XE-LED-DA improving light throughput significantly
Avantes introduces a completely new designed cuvette holder with attenuator for Avantes Xenon and LED light sources, with substantial benefits for the user. Attaching the CUV-DHC-XE-LED-DA directly to the light source removes the need for an extra fiber with its subsequent surface transfers and attenuation in the optical path.
Compared to a normal Cuvette holder improves the new CUV-DHC-XE-LED-DA design the light throughput by a factor of 200 in the UV range and 60 in the VIS/ NIR range.
The new cuvette holder is designed for 10x10 mm cuvettes and is directly attachable to all Avantes Xenon and LED light sources. The new attenuator, incorporated in the design of the cuvette holder, provides the ability to control the intensity of the light beam with an incorporated iris. The cuvetteholder is equipped with a 5 mm slot for filters.
