ArcTune design is based on wide-aperture monochromator M150i or M266i by SOLAR Laser Systems and unique xenon 75W or 150W lamp PowerArc™ by HORIBA Scientific.
Sealed PowerArc™ housing is air tight and not air cooled. Hence there is no ozone generation within lamp housing. 75W lamps do not require water cooling as well.
Unique ellipsoidal reflector within xenon lamp PowerArc™ collects up to 70% of the radiant energy from the arc lamp, versus only 12% for typical condenser systems in vertical lamp housings. The ellipse literally wraps around the arc lamp, collecting 5 to 6 times more output power than a conventional system.
Monochromator’s choice (compact M150i or multifunctional M266i) allows to optimize the required optical power and spectral resolution of the lightsource system and its degree of automation as well. Both monochromators are provided in Imaging modification with astigmatism correction.
Monochromator M266i is fully automated, it can contain up to 4 diffraction gratings; the focal length is twice than that of M150i. It enables to open the slits two times wider for the selected bandwidth of the spectral range and thus to increase 4 times the output optical power.
Bundling with monochromator M266i versus M150i allows to increase twice the spectral resolution, or to increase four times the output optical power.
Monochromator M150i — effective and compact, can be supplied with 1, 2 or 3 diffraction gratings, with an option of slits type selection: automated slits with slightly tunable width or a bundle of replaceable slits with fixed width for manual setting.
Continuous spectral output in range from 250 nm to 2500 nm produced by arc xenon lamp PowerArc™ is presented in the figure below. Spectral specifications of the tunable lightsource ArcTune depend on the selected diffractional grating for the specified spectral range.
