Broadband Light Sources

For research and development or for production and testing environments EXALOS is offering benchtop instruments in various form factors. Our benchtop instruments are highly customizable and can be configured with up to eight SLEDs for ultra-broadband light sources. These instruments can either have individual optical outputs for each SLED or can be configured to have one common output where the spectra of the individual SLEDs are combined. In the long-wavelength range EXALOS can offer an ultra-broadband 350-nm light source from 1270 to 1620 nm with more than 40 mW of optical output power. In the short-wavelength range EXALOS can offer an ultra-broadband 170-nm light source from 750 to 920 nm. Please contact our sales team for more information.
