New high output tuneable light source… The Hyperchromator
An efficient monochromator utilising the high-brightness Energetiq EQ-99X LDLS™ Laser Driven Light Source (right) has been developed by Mountain Photonics, and was recently demonstrated on our booth at Photonics West.
The Hyperchromator uses an off-axis parabolic mirror to focus the broadband light generated by the small plasma spot of the LDLS™ directly onto a diffraction grating, and then off a second mirror to an exit port.
As no entrance slit is used, the optical efficiency of the system is very high – typically f/1.5 or f/2, depending on the required resolution or throughput. A white light bypass output is also available.
The output port has been designed to allow for a multitude of illumination or light coupling options. By using standard catalogue components, the Hyperchromator can be easily integrated into an application.
The Hyperchromator is controlled via USB/RS-232 and an intuitive GUI, with LabVIEW™ and other software libraries supported.
Existing owners of an Energetiq EQ-99X LDLS™ can add tuneability by purchasing the Hyperchromator unit alone.
