Model TLS-300X Xenon Tunable light source made up of a 300 W Xe source with the CornerstoneTM 130 1/8 m Monochromator and filter wheel for order sorting capability.
Newports NEW TLS Series Tunable Sources deliver up to 0.6 nm resolution of monochromatic light from 250 nm to 2400 nm (slit size dependent). We designed these systems for Researchers who need the flexibility of a modular design with the simplicity of an integrated system. Finally, a pre-aligned and pre-assembled tunable source that requires no set-up! We kept the design simple and the size compact to ensure an economical price without compromising performance, stability or safety. But we didnt stop there - we measure the output of each system prior to shipment and include that data for your reference. If your application requires customization, please contact an Oriel Technical Sales Engineer at email@example.com to discuss your specific requirements.
We took the systems that you, our customers, most commonly request and pre-assembled and aligned them, so you can get up and working with minimal set-up time. And, we characterized them so you know what the typical output will be without spending time doing throughput calculations. See Figures 1 and 2 for the typical spectral outputs of our standard TLS Systems. If the systems here dont meet your irradiance requirements, contact one of our Technical Sales Engineers at firstname.lastname@example.org to configure a pre-assembled system to meet your needs well even characterize it for you!
Fig. 3 shows the layout of a typical TLS Series Source. It is made up of six components:
Space is available in the optical path to insert an Optical Chopper. The output is a collimated beam, but focusing optics can be added as needed. The lens assembly has a standard 1.5 inch flange for easy coupling of focusing lens assemblies and fiber delivery systems. To customize the output, please contact a Sales Engineer at email@example.com for guidance.
We offer three models of TLS Systems, differing in the lamp type and wattage. All lamps are operated in the Research Series Lamp Housings with rear reflectors for maximum light collection, and operated by our highly stable Research Series of Power Supplies.
The motorized filter wheel includes four 1.0 inch (25.4 mm) diameter order sorting filters to minimize second order effects, ensuring true monochromatic light.When scanning over a wide spectral band, it is important to isolate the wavelength region of interest by using order sorting filters. They allow you to block first and second order wavelengths to which your detector way be sensitive, ensuring spectral purity. We include the following order sorting filters.
The CornerstoneTM 1/8 m Monochromator has two 600 l/mm gratings, one blazed at 400 nm and the second blazed at 1000 nm. Multiple fixed slits are included to allow the user to adjust the bandwidth in fixed increments, as needed for their experiment.For other grating choices, or for a system based on a 1/4 m Monochromator, contact a Sales Engineer at firstname.lastname@example.org .
A collimating lens assembly at the output of the Monochromator delivers a 1.0 inch (25.4 mm) diameter collimated output. Any Oriel 1.5 Inch Series flanged accessory will couple directly to this lens assembly, such as a focusing assembly for a single point detector or a fiber delivery system. Contact one of our Technical Sales Engineers at email@example.com for guidance on customizing the output.
TracQ commands the filter wheel and monochromator, and acquires and processes data from an Oriel Detection System. We offer a wide selection of calibrated and non calibrated detectors, power meters and lock-in amplifiers; contact a Sales Engineer at firstname.lastname@example.org for help in selecting the appropriate measurement solution for your application.
The data shown in Figures 1 and 2 are typical of these systems, but lamp differences and alignment variations affect the actual output. We characterize each system prior to shipment (to 1800 nm), and include that data so you can determine what your systems output should be. Note, your measured data may differ from the factory data due to differences in measurement instruments, lamp installation and alignment variations and different slit width. The data is meant as a reference only.
For AC radiometric measurements chopped light is required. We allowed enough space in the optical path between the filter wheel and the monochromator, to allow the insertion of our 75151 Optical Chopper; the 75151 can be controlled from our Merlin Digital Lock-in. For assistance, please contact one of our Technical Sales Engineers at email@example.com.
The TLS monochromator is equipped with slits that are variable from 50 µm to 3.16 mm, in fixed increments. Table 1 shows the resolution at each slit width. By comparing Figures 1 and 2 youll see the relationship between throughput and resolution; you can markedly increase throughput, but at the expense of resolution.
