A Mercury-Xenon Lamp is designed to provide high radiant energy in the ultraviolet region. These devices exhibit the best characteristics of both xenon lamps and high-pressure mercury lamps. Hence, the spectral distribution of a mercury-xenon Lamp includes a continuous spectrum from the ultraviolet to infrared and the strong mercury line spectrum. Compared to super-high-pressure mercury lamps, the radiant spectrum in the ultraviolet region is higher in intensity and sharper. The mercury-xenon lamp also features instantaneous starting and restarting.
In conventional mercury-xenon lamps, the arc point fluctuates and moves gradually with operating time, as a result of cathode erosion. 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. Applications include semiconductor tools, uv curing, microscopy and in- vitro diagnostics
