Excelitas is the premier flashlamp producer in the world for a wide range of applications. We actively participate in the advancement of flashlamp technology through extensive research in materials, technology and production processes.
The UV transmission properties of quartz can be modified by the incorporation of a dopant in the material. This dopant usually takes the form of 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 must be eliminated. This includes the elimination of ozone or he prevention of UV damage to Nd:YAG rods, reflectors, plastics and “O” rings.
Titanium doped quartz is a clear fused quartz doped with titanium oxide and is available in many different grades, each one having a different UV cut off profile. It has similar characteristics to cerium doped quartz but does not have the fluorescence characteristic. This material is frequently used in non-laser flashlamps when ozone must be prevented.
Excelitas takes pride in providing solid state and Xenon-based lighting products and solutions that help to create a brighter, healthier and safer environment.
