Quantum Design Light Sources

Broadband incoherent light sources and accessories

We offer a comprehensive range of broadband incoherent light sources, covering a spectral range from the UV into the IR.  Each light source can be tailored for a specific function by incorporating a number of applicable accessories (filters, fibre optics etc). All our light sources are of a modular nature which enables users to have a flexible and versatile instrument.

Our light sources can also be combined with a monochromator to create a monochromatic light source (please see Monochromators tab). Datasheets for our most popular off-the shelf products can be found below. However, a comprehensive range of datasheets, including all accessories, are available on request.

Please contact us if you would like to discuss your specific application or require a customised configuration.
