Deuterium Lamps, Hamamatsu

Keywords: Lamps, Deuterium Lamps

Deuterium (D2) lamps emit UV light; the wavelength range depends on the lamp’s glass material. A key characteristic of Hamamatsu’s D2 lamps is their excellent stability. They show very small output variations from lamp to lamp, and individual lamps have low fluctuation and drift values. Such stability is due to the ceramic electrode structure, which ensures lamp stability even when the ambient temperature fluctuates. D2 lamps also have a long service life and high brightness, and Hamamatsu continues to develop D2 lamps with even higher brightness.   Hamamatsu makes the following types of D2 lamps

  • L2D2 - long life
  • S2D2 - stable and small, e.g. compact
  • H2D2 - high brightness
  • X2D2 - ultrahigh brightness

Deuterium lamps are widely used in UV-visible absorption spectroscopy, atomic absorption spectroscopy, HPLC, environmental analysis, capillary electrophoresis, film thickness measurement, and other applications.

Choose a combination of driver, head unit, and cable from the available options to create your customized LC-L3. You may also select from our packaged combination models, which are available in various configurations. The LC-L3 is comprised of an LED driver, LED head unit, and head unit cable. LEDs with individual light adjustment for tailored profiles. High output intensity: 250 mW/cm2 at 365 nm. UV-LED emits at 365 or 385 nm.


Xenon Flash Lamps, Hamamatsu

For applications that do not require continuous illumination, xenon flash lamps are a convenient source of ultraviolet and visible light. These lamps are compact and generate a minimal amount of heat and are available in sizes ranging from 5 to 60 watts.


Mercury-Xenon Lamps, Hamamatsu

Our range of super-quiet mercury-xenon lamps employ a specially developed cathode which has minimized cathode erosion, providing extremely high stability and long life. The spectral distribution of a mercury-xenon Lamp includes a continuous spectrum from the ultraviolet to infrared and the strong mercury line spectrum.


Xenon Lamps, Hamamatsu

Conventional xenon short-arc lamps are inadequate light sources for precision photometry, since their light emissions are unstable due to arc point shift and fluctuation. Our super-quiet xenon lamps have completely solved these problems by using a highly durable cathode. Xenon short-arc lamps are point light sources providing high luminance and colour temperature.
