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.

Styrofoam or copper - both materials have very different properties with regard to their ability to conduct heat. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz and the University of Bayreuth have now jointly developed and characterized a novel, extremely thin and transparent material that has different thermal conduction properties depending on the direction. While it can conduct heat extremely well in one direction, it shows good thermal insulation in the other direction.
Thermal insulation and thermal conduction play a crucial role in our everyday lives - from computer processors, where it is important to dissipate heat as...
In order to advance the transfer of research developments from the field of quantum sensor technology into industrial applications, an application laboratory is being established at Fraunhofer IAF. This will enable interested companies and especially regional SMEs and start-ups to evaluate the innovation potential of quantum sensors for their specific requirements. Both the state of Baden-Württemberg and the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft are supporting the four-year project with one million euros each.
The application laboratory is being set up as part of the Fraunhofer lighthouse project »QMag«, short for quantum magnetometry. In this project, researchers...
