Clear Fused Quartz Flashlamps
Our Clear Fused-Quartz lamp envelopes constitute the majority of Excelitas Flashlamp models. This envelope material has an upper operational limit of approximately 600°C and is readily available in a wide range of shapes and sizes. The UV cut off starts at approximately 220 nanometers. Many flashlamp pumped laser systems use lamps made from clear fused quartz.
Excelitas is the premier flashlamp producer in the world for a wide range of applications. We actively participate in the advancement of flash lamp technology through extensive research in materials, technology and production processes.
Synthetic Quartz is high-purity material. It is widely specified when transmission down to 160 nanometers is required. It generally has superb optical qualities and is the most expensive of all the quartz materials.
Quartz glass gains its unique resistance to arc and thermal shock from the high bonding energy of pure SiO2 and the negligible small expansion of 4 x 10-7/K.
Quartz glass usually requires manual processing but our highly skilled glass blowers know how to form this material in any shape applicable to flash lamp applications.
