Year of the Peridoic Table

150 YEARS PERIODIC TABLE

What does the periodic table have to do with Infrared emitters, UV- or Flash technology?
Lots of elements contribute in giving these systems and emitters the incredible power to make light technically usable.

Many of us know the periodic table from school. It represents the chemical elements in an order system. 150 years ago the periodic table was discovered independently by the chemists Dimitri Mendelejew and Lothar Meyer. Therefore, the United Nations and UNESCO declared 2019 as the International Year of Periodic Table.

Deuterium lamp

H - Hydrogen

Deuterium is a natural isotope of hydrogen. Due to its mass it is also known as "heavy hydrogen". Heraeus Noblelight manufactures deuterium lamps that are the ideal light source for high-precision absorption measurements in the laboratory by generating a continous spectrum with wavelengths ranging from UV to visible light. Thus, they help determine traces of undesired contamination such as melamine in milk powder for babies.

Carbon infrared emitter

C - Carbon

Heraeus carbon infrared emitters feature a unique design of the heating filament that combines the efficient radiation with very short response times.
This accelerates the heat process while at the same time achieving high efficiency.

QRC infrared emitter

Si - Silicon

Most Heraeus emitters are made from high-purity fused silica which ensures transmission and thermal stability.
Fused silica is extremely resistant against heat, acids, alkalis and other aggressive substances.

Xenon flash lamp

Xe - Xenon

Solar cells and solar modules need to be tested to check production quality and to characterise the cells and assign them to power classes. Only cells that are optimally compatible with each other are combined to form a module. This requires reliable and reproducible light sources which have a spectrum that comes as close as possible to that of the sun. Xenon flash lamps, small and ring-shaped or linear and up to two metres long, are suitable light sources.

Ta - Tantalum

Tantalum is a rare, hard, shiny transition metal with high corrosion resistance. It forms the basis for a protective oxide layer on components. Tantalum ensures a long service life in infrared emitters, for example as a disc on the heating coil.

Golden 8 Infrared Emitter

Au - Gold

Heraeus Noblelight manufactures infrared emitters with a gold reflector that allows directed emission of heat to the product. A gold coating on the infrared emitters reflects the IR radiation. This almost doubles the efficient radiation onto the product.
