    Ocean Optics DH-2000-BAL Balanced Deuterium Tungsten Halogen Source

    The innovative DH-2000-BAL is the world's only balanced UV-NIR deuterium tungsten halogen source.

    Ocean Optics has applied their expertise in patterned dichroic filters to an innovation in light source technology to create the only combined-spectrum illumination source available that eliminates saturation and signal-to-noise problems associated with the D-alpha line in the deuterium source.

    About the D-alpha Line:

    All deuterium-tungsten halogen sources have a D-alpha line, revealed as a jagged peak in the visible portion of the spectrum, that produces "unbalanced" output in the deuterium and tungsten halogen sources. Correcting for this deuterium line -- a sharp spectral feature near 655 nm -- is difficult. For example, if you adjust spectrometer integration time to reduce the intensity of this saturated spectral line, the efficiency of the system at UV wavelengths drops significantly, compromising signal-to-noise performance. Also, spectrometer efficiency is greatest in the same general spectral range as the 655 nm line, exaggerating its effects.

    Proprietary Filtering Technology :

    Using the same high-precision patterned dichroic filter technology that distinguishes Ocean Optics Linear Variable Filters, the DH-2000-BAL balances the intensity of the deuterium and tungsten halogen sources, producing a "smoother" spectrum across the entire wavelength range and eliminating problems associated with saturation. By comparison, most combination UV-NIR sources can be adjusted for relative intensity only

    Optical Fibers:
    We recommend using Ocena Optics solarization-resistant optical fibers with all versions of the DH-2000-BAL.


    • Eliminates D-alpha line in deuterium source

    • Stable output 215-2000 nm

    • Innovative filtering technology produces smooth spectrum across entire range

    The DH-2000-BAL Deuterium Tungsten Halogen Light Source combines the continuous spectrum of deuterium and tungsten halogen light sources in a single optical path, producing a powerful, stable output from 215-2000 nm.
