Bridgewater, N.J. New compact xenon flash lamp modules from Hamamatsu Corp. integrate a 5-watt xenon flash lamp with a power supply and trigger socket. Featuring high stability and long operating life, the L9455/L9456 modules are suitable for water quality and atmospheric analyzers for both scientific and homeland security applications.
The company believes the 5-watt maximum energy input of the L9455/L9456 is the highest among lamps of comparable size. Both lamps have excellent stability, typically 0.7% for the L9455 and 0.5% for the L9456, and provide long service life of 1.3 x 109 flashes and have a maximum repetition rate of 500 Hz. With a radiant spectrum of 185 nm to 2000 nm, the lamps offer wide coverage from UV to the NIR (near infrared).
Because the xenon flash lamps are packaged in a metal housing the devices offer very low radiant noise. Both modules have an UV glass window, and can be equipped with an optional SMA optical fiber adapter. The L9455 provides a 1.5-mm arc while the L9456 has a 3.0-mm arc.
Pricing is $518.00 each for the L9455 and L9456. Delivery is six weeks.
