Xenon flash lamps feature a more compact construction and less heat build-up than continuous mode lamps. They also provide a high-intensity continuous spectrum from the UV through the visible to the infrared range. Hamamatsu Xenon Flash Lamps are especially applicable for precision photometry, because of such outstanding characteristics as arc sta-bility 5 times higher and service life 10 times longer than those of conventional lamps, with the improved electrode construction and materials.
The L12336 series is a family of xenon flash lamp modules that integrate a 2W xenon flash lamp, power supply, and trigger socket all into a single unit. This module uses a cube-shaped case that is the world’s smallest in its wattage class and therefore gives a high degree of design freedom. Other features include high stability, long life, and high luminous efficiency per flash, making the L12336 series ideal for assembly into compact analytical instruments.
This flash light source, called "LF1", consists of a xenon flash lamp, power supply and control circuit, all integrated into one package. Selecting the desired optical system components such as the lightguide allows the LF1 to emit a variety of different types of light. Light emission is highly intense for a period of microseconds, making the LF1 ideal for strobe light sources. The LF1 is also easy to use and handle, offering features such as programmable light emis- sion, flash count and control from a PC.
