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.
