Tunable KiloArc Illuminator Bandwidth

Tunable KiloArc™ Illuminator equipped with 1000 watt Xenon lamp and 1,200 l/mm x 500 nm blazed grating. Here the adjustable bandpass was set to 20 nm.


Think of the OBB Tunable KiloArc™ Illuminator as a continuously tunable high intensity laser. It can produce tunable monochromatic light with hundreds of milliwatts of power, and an overall available spectral output from 180 nm to 24 microns.

Don’t need so much Power?

If you don’t need this much intensity in a tunable light source then we also offer a Tunable PowerArc™ Illuminator. It delivers milliwatts of power, is smaller and portable, and it is about half price of the Tunable KiloArc™ Illuminator. For more information go toTunable PowerArc™ Illuminator.
