Never before has there been a tool which combines high power, exceptional uniformity, and versatility in an efficient and compact modular form fact - at 172 nm! The revolution begins with the introduction of the π2-Cygni series of vacuum-ultraviolet light processing systems.
Efficient light source, passive cooling, and integrated purge system means that everything needed for operation is contained in the system itself. Just plug in the included 12 Vac power adapter, connect to a purge-gas source with the 1/4" quick-connect fitting, and the π2-Cygni is ready for use.
Using a modular design approach, the π2-Cygni provides capability "right-out-of-the-box" for:
|Output intensity||> 10 mW/cm2|
|Light emission aperture||42mm x 42mm|
|Intensity variation over clear aperture||< 3%|
|Peak output wavelength||172 nm|
|Full width at the half maximum (FWHM)||8.9 nm|
|Warm up time (from 0 to 95% rated output intensity)||< 2 s|
|DC input voltage||12 V|
|Recommended purge gases||Dry nitrogen or argon|
|Purge gas flow rate*||0.3 - 1 SCFM (8.5 - 28 L/min)|
|Lamp lifetime||> 5000 hours|
|Transmitting environments and materials||Nitrogen, Argon, UV-grade fused silica**, High vacuum|
* Dry nitrogen or Ar purging is required for operation
** UV-grade fused silica transmission spectrum must be verified by manufacturer
