Energetiq introduces laser-driven light sources Energetiq Technology, a provider of ultra‐high brightness light sources for advanced technology applications, introduces the EQ‐99X and EQ‐99XFC enhanced performance Laser‐Driven Light Sources at Photonics West 2014. Based on the highly successful EQ‐99 series of Laser‐Driven Light Sources (LDLSTM), the EQ‐99X‐Series offers ultraclean construction for greater long‐term stability and longer operating life. The EQ‐99XFC LDLS with fiber‐coupled output features new Fiber‐ Protection TechnologyTM, shown to improve long‐term deep ultraviolet output by an order of magnitude. “These are exciting enhancements to our Laser‐Driven Light Sources,” said Paul Blackborow, CEO of Energetiq. “With the new ultra‐clean construction and Fiber‐Protection Technology, the X‐Series LDLS products will deliver to our customers even brighter, even more stable, broadband Laser‐Driven Light Sources.” LDLS X‐Series products include: EQ‐99X – Compact, Long‐Life, High‐Brightness, Broadband Laser‐Driven LightSource EQ‐99XFC – Compact, Long‐Life, High‐Brightness, Broadband Laser‐Driven LightSource with Fiber‐Coupled Output The EQ‐99 LDLS series received the prestigious R & D 100 Award in 2011 for its technological significance, and a 2011 Prism Award for Photonics Innovation.
