Heraeus Noblelight GmbH is pleased to announce the debut of FiberLight™ L3, the first broadband UV LED light source module for analytical measurement instruments. FiberLight™ L3 is the first light source module that combines the benefits of LED technology, such as long lifetime and low power consumption, with broadband UV spectral output.
Broadband spectral output is desirable for optical analytical instruments because it provides the flexibility to perform both qualitative (identify what substances are present) and quantitative (amount of a substance) analysis with one instrument.
FiberLight™ L3 will find immediate application in instruments used for environmental monitoring such as air and water quality, and soil monitoring, and also for protein purification.
OEMs, such as those manufacturing UV-spectrophotometers, flash chromatography can integrate the FiberLight™ L3 more easily into their analytical instruments due to its small form factor and lower optical setup costs.
As a result analytical instrument OEMs can develop new portable and handheld instruments more quickly and deliver their instruments to a broader range of customers.
”OEM design engineers can easily incorporate the FiberLight™ L3 into their analytical instruments, especially portable handheld units, significantly reducing the time it takes to launch a new product,” noted Torsten Jenek, Head of Innovation Optics & Analytics at Heraeus Noblelight. “And they can rest assured their customers will appreciate the long lifetime and consistent reliability.”
The FiberLight™ L3 uses a single UV-LED chip and phosphors to produce the broadband output. This innovative design overcomes the many disadvantages of previous approaches which used multi-chip UV LED arrays.
Disadvantages of using multi-chip UV LED arrays include high cost, short lifetime due to shortest lifetime chip, difficult optical setup for analytical instruments, and high dynamic variation between chips.
FiberLight™ L3 provides broadband UV spectral output from 250 to 490 nm and a lifetime of more than 5.000 hours – this opens new possibilities for analytical measurement.
Power consumption is less than 1.5 Watt with excellent optical stability. The module is compact for easy integration into mobile and handheld analytical instruments, incorporates the optical fiber coupling, and can operate in pulsing or continuous modes.

For some phenomena in quantum many-body physics several competing theories exist. But which of them describes a quantum phenomenon best? A team of researchers from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Harvard University in the United States has now successfully deployed artificial neural networks for image analysis of quantum systems.
Is that a dog or a cat? Such a classification is a prime example of machine learning: artificial neural networks can be trained to analyze images by looking...
An international research group led by scientists from the University of Bayreuth has produced a previously unknown material: Rhenium nitride pernitride. Thanks to combining properties that were previously considered incompatible, it looks set to become highly attractive for technological applications. Indeed, it is a super-hard metallic conductor that can withstand extremely high pressures like a diamond. A process now developed in Bayreuth opens up the possibility of producing rhenium nitride pernitride and other technologically interesting materials in sufficiently large quantity for their properties characterisation. The new findings are presented in "Nature Communications".
The possibility of finding a compound that was metallically conductive, super-hard, and ultra-incompressible was long considered unlikely in science. It was...
An interdisciplinary research team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has built platinum nanoparticles for catalysis in fuel cells: The new size-optimized catalysts are twice as good as the best process commercially available today.
Fuel cells may well replace batteries as the power source for electric cars. They consume hydrogen, a gas which could be produced for example using surplus...

Physicists at the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg report the first result of the new Alphatrap experiment. They measured the bound-electron g-factor of highly charged (boron-like) argon ions with unprecedented precision of 9 digits. In comparison with a new highly accurate quantum electrodynamic calculation they found an excellent agreement on a level of 7 digits. This paves the way for sensitive tests of QED in strong fields like precision measurements of the fine structure constant α as well as the detection of possible signatures of new physics. [Physical Review Letters, 27 June 2019]
Quantum electrodynamics (QED) describes the interaction of charged particles with electromagnetic fields and is the most precisely tested physical theory. It...
