Energetiq Technology has introduced a new light source to its established line of laser-driven light sources for use in radiometric calibration.
The EQ-99CAL is a calibration light source that covers the complete ultraviolet to visible spectral range with high brightness and stable output levels across that spectrum. Traditionally, radiometric calibrations have been made using more than one light source, for example Deuterium, Tungsten and Halogen. Generally, in the past, no one source could cover from 200-800nm. Additionally, traditional sources need to be recalibrated often and lamp bulbs replaced after only 500 hours of use. The EQ-99CAL has a long interval between calibrations (1,000 hours or one year) and a long bulb life of more than 5,000 hours, resulting in a lower cost of ownership.
