DescriptionAvaLight-D(H)-S Deuterium-Halogen Light Sources
In need of more power than the AvaLight-DHc? The AvaLight-DH-S is Avantes’ most powerful deuterium halogen source. Like the DHc it is also a combined deuterium and halogen light source, capable of transmitting light in the UV/VIS/NIR-range, but has 35 times more halogen output and up to 300 times more deuterium power. The source has a prominent 656 nm deuterium peak which can limit dynamic range (see Avalight-DH-S-BAL as an alternative). It includes a focusing lens assembly, to fully utilize the possibilities and size of your fiber.
The AvaLight-D-S is a deuterium light source only, making it a great option for measurements in the UV range, 215-400 nm. The AvaLight-D-S-DUV version starts even lower at 190 nm, for your deep-UV experiments.
The output of the AvaLight-DH-S is optimized for fibers or bundles up to 600 micrometers. For larger fibers the focal point is manually adjustable to optimize the light coupling into your fiber.
To protect the fibers from solarizing, standard AvaLight-D(H)S light sources have a special UV long-pass filter (>220 nm) implemented. Should you require a spectral output below 220 nm, then please order the Deep-UV-version (DUV), which is available in three versions (see table on the next page).
The AvaLight-D(H)-S features an integrated TTL-shutter and filter holder for filters of up to 50x50x5.0 mm.
