Infrared Light Source

Thermal light source for infrared spectroscopy

Ideal for use as a thermal light source for infrared spectroscopy as when heated up, they reach temperatures of 1,000°C to 1,300°C (1,830°F to 2,372°F). When combined with a downstream variable interference filter, it emits radiation from 4 to 15 micrometres wavelength. These are used as thermal light sources for infrared spectroscopy because their spectral behaviour corresponds approximately to that of a Planck radiator.

Our emitters are designed for those customers who require higher temperatures and greater output from their infrared source.

These emitters are manufactured using a patented silicon nitride material. The advanced ceramic technology ensures a very stable product and their robust design safeguards intrinsic physical and thermal strength.
