XWS technology is applied to develop novel light sources that use laser a driver for the plasmas to generate “white” light, which is brighter and more stable than that generated by short-arc high pressure lamps. No wear of electrodes significantly increases lifetime of such a source.
In XWS sources light is produced by plasma which emits light due to the continuous energy input from a laser (optical discharge). These light sources have been developed as a replacement of traditional gas discharge lamps (Deuterium-, Tungsten-, Xenon- lamps etc.) and LEDs. Compared to these, XWS sources have a wider spectral range and higher spectral brightness. Moreover, the technology of plasma light sources allows developing units with specific characteristics which match special customer applications.
