115 Years Specialty Light Sources


Productive light with wavelengths from ultraviolet to infrared is technically usable - in many different processes. Heraeus Noblelight offers emitters and systems for the whole range from UV to IR. The UV lamp was invented by Heraeus, the infrared emitters were added in 1947, the analysis lamps have been available at Heraeus for more than 50 years and the laser excitation lamps completed the portfolio in 1978.

That's why the whole technology was summed up as "Heraeus Noblelight".

To this day, the proven lamps are further optimized and completely new systems are developed
