Powerful tunable light sources of the APOLLO TLS-SERIES

The innovative design of the light sources of the APOLLO Series allows for straightforward alignment with the monochromator-spectrographs of the ATLAS Series to produce a powerful tunable light source system – the APOLLO TLS-Series. With a range of light sources (xenon-, pulsed xenon- und halogen light sources) and monochromators available, a highly customizable tunable light source can be created to meet your power and resolution requirements.

Key features of the APOLLO TLS-Series are:

  • Highly stable xenon and tungsten halogen light sources
  • Optimized light path to maximize light output efficiency
  • Pre-aligned, calibrated and tested to ensure straightforward set-up
  • Output bandwidth can be adjusted continuously
  • Robust and easy to use software control
  • Filter wheel, shutters, optical monitors and other accessories available
  • System supplied as standard on an optical baseplate
  • On-site installation and training available

Please give us a call. We will be happy to send you further information and support you during configuration.
