Xenon short-arc lamps are point light sources providing high luminance and colour temperature. They emit a continuous spectrum of light, ranging from ultraviolet through visible to infrared.
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. Solving the problems of arc point shift and fluctuation is essential in order to use xenon short-arc lamps in photometric applications. Our super-quiet xenon lamps have completely solved these problems by using a highly durable cathode. This cathode exhibits virtually no shift and minimal fluctuation of the arc point for the lifetime of the lamp. Our super-quiet xenon lamps deliver unprecedented long service life. These lamps are ideal for use in microscopy, colourimetry, in- vitro diagnostics and analytical instruments.
