Lamps and Lamp Systems: Flashlamps

Excelitas Xenon or Krypton Flashlamps produce microsecond to millisecond duration pulses of broadband light with high radiant intensities and repetition rates.

For high-power and UV applications, our robust quartz envelope materials are recommended. For lower-intensity applications, hard glass or borosilicate offer better economy without sacrificing performance.

Excelitas offers an extensive assortment of lamp shapes for a range of applications and integrations. Comprehensive plug-in custom solutions... lamps, sockets and integrated trigger coils... are also available upon request. Exceptional stability and life characteristics make our flashlamps series the ideal source of pulsed or continuous light for your application.

Borosilicate Glass

Excelitas utilizes Borosilicate glass (or hard glass) extensively for our Flashlamps that are operating under low average operating power. This includes signal beacons, low-power stroboscopes and low-power photographic applications.
YAG rods, reflectors, plastics and “O” rings. They are particularly well suited for laser pumping applications.

Cerium Doped Quartz Flashlamps

The UV transmission properties of quartz can be modified by the incorporation of a dopant. This dopant is most often cerium or titanium oxides. The quartz still appears clear but the UV transmission has been modified. This modification is desirable when potentially damaging UV from the flashlamp...
