Reducing the size of its flat excimer light source into a compact box without compromising on performance, Hamamatsu Photonics has introduced the L12530 EX-mini; a compact light source suitable for R&D work in both cleaning and reforming applications. This all-in-one, lightweight design offers portability, making it suitable for field work.
The EX-mini outputs 172nm light at 50mW/cm2; with highly uniform irradiation over the area of the rectangular lamp, which measures 86x40mm. The light source is built in to the easily accessible irradiation box which has a moveable stage inside, allowing for height adjustment to increase irradiance. Along with the use of RF discharge, these design features enable highly effective material modification and cleansing capabilities compared to similar products.
In addition to simple functions which aim to provide easy operation, the Ex-mini can also be supplied with an Ozone Decomposition Unit. This is designed to make the EX-mini even easier for indoor use, eliminating the need for installation of external exhaust ducts..
The EX-mini delivers simple yet highly accurate testing and evaluations using vacuum UV light.
