Light Sources

There are a variety of Sciencetech light sources available (e.g. Arc Lamps, Tunable Light Sources, Incandescent Lamps, Calibration Lamps) with applications for both research and industry.  


Arc Lamps



  • Focused beam or collimated systems
  • High Stability
  • Complete, “turn key” systems
  • Customization is available
  • Designed & Manufactured by Sciencetech, Inc (Canada)


Research Grade Arc Lamp Source Packages come with all the components required to operate a research-quality focused xenon arc lamp source: power supply, arc lamp housing and lamp.

These systems feature a configurable housing capable of being operated in the vertical or horizontal position. Each housing comes with adjustable base plates for both configurations, allowing easy alignment of the lamp to the rest of the optical system.

Power and communication are supplied to the housing via a single cable connected to the touchscreen power supply, allowing users to easily and neatly set up the system. A safety interlock prevents power being supplied to the housing while the cover is open, protecting users from electric shock or unwanted light exposure.

Optional accessories include a downward facing stand, beam turner, alternative optical packages, optical filter holders and filter boxes, and filters.

Systems fall under these categories (click on the links to see product details):
