Light sources are the starting point for photonics experiments and applications. Newport offers a wide variety of incoherent light sources to meet the needs and requirements of most photonic applications. If you need to simulate the sun by matching the solar spectra, or need the specific spectra provided by arc lamps, quartz Tungsten halogen lamps, or blackbody light sources, Newport’s brand Oriel has the light source that you need.
Depending on your application requirements, Newport can provide a variety of solar simulators to fit your needs. While Sol series simulators offer standards compliance to the most current standards from the ASTM, IEC, and JIS, the COLIPA standard's compliant Sol-UV solar simulators are the right choice if your application is in the ultraviolet (UV):
LED Solar Simulators
Arc Lamp Solar Simulators
Solar Simulator Accessories
Newport’s arc lamp light sources have high ultraviolet and visible output with some prominent lines in the near infrared, which make them useful for many spectroscopy applications. The small, bright arcs have significant advantages for collimation and intense irradiation:
Xenon (Xe) UV-IR Light Sources
Mercury (Hg) UV-VIS Light Sources
Hg-Xe UV-Enhanced, UV-IR Light Sources
Deuterium UV Light Sources
QTH light sources (Quartz Tungsten Halogen) feature high visible and near infrared output with little ultraviolet, making them great for use in incandescent light sources. The stability, filament structure and high color temperature make Newport’s lamps the best for many measurement and illumination applications:
Low Power Q Series QTH Light Sources
Medium Power Research QTH Light Sources
High Power Research QTH Light Sources
Open Air Mounted QTH Light Sources
QTH Lamp Socket Adapters
QPS-Q QTH Lamp Power Supplies
Integrating the redesigned Cornerstone 130B monochromator, Newport’s TLS130B Series tunable light sources provide upgraded performance from the standard TLS(130) models while maintaining the same integrated system platform. The wide tuning range makes the TLS ideal for a wide variety of applications.
Newport’s 1,000 W UV flood exposure light sources cover the near UV (350 to 450 nm), mid UV (260 to 320 nm) and deep UV (220 to 260 nm). NUV is designed to expose most photoresists, MUV is used for polymer cross-linking and novel resists, and DUV for deep ultraviolet studies. These models have illumination areas of 6" x 6".
From complete infrared light sources like IR illuminators and blackbody light sources to modular components that let you build your own infrared source, Newport’s brand Oriel has the solutions to your IR illumination requirements:
Infrared Light Sources
IR Emitter Socket Adapters
Newport’s fiber optic illuminators are broadband incoherent light sources with focused outputs matched to Newport’s 1/8 and 1/4 m monochromators. Newport uses a simple compact size design to ensure an economical price without compromising performance, stability and safety.
Spectral calibration light sources produce narrow, intense lines of ultraviolet (UV) to infrared (IR) wavelengths due to the excitation of various rare gases and metal vapors. Newport’s calibration lamps are useful for wavelength calibration of spectroscopic instruments such as monochromators, spectrographs and spectral radiometers.
Newport’s range of light source accessories are used to control a light source, route the light from a source to another instrument in free space or fiber bundles, and provide for safe operation:
Light Routing Shields
Flange Mounted Light Source Accessories
Light Source Intensity Controllers
UV Lab Safety Products
Light Source Shutters
Newports portfolio of light source components can be used to build a complete incoherent light source:
