HBO lamps are short arc lamps in which the discharge arc fires in an atmosphere of mercury vapor under high pressure. Since HBO lamps give off a great deal of ultraviolet radiation, they are almost exclusively employed in technical-scientific applications.
XBO lamps for medical-technical use
XBO lamps are short arc lamps in which the discharge arc fires in a pure xenon atmosphere under high pressure. XBO lamps have a very good color rendering and extremely high luminance. For this reason they are often used in light guide systems, e.g. for endoscopy or dental technology.
HBO-IC lamps provide a high radiation output in the ultraviolet. Because of the high radiance, the generated light can be coupled very efficiently in optical systems.
Our XERADEX lamps and radiance systems provide vacuum ultraviolet radiation (VUV), which are used, among other things, for surface treatment, ozone generation and the generation of purified water.
