|Scientific Illumination and Light Sources
Some research and analytical procedures require specialized lighting to be performed. For instance, some tests may require UV illumination or an accurate simulation of solar light.
Deuterium light sources are commonly used for scientific applications that require UV light. They are generally preferred over blackbody light sources, which tend to have a low rate of UV emission and a high output of visible light. The low output of visible light from deuterium lamps reduces the possibility of stray light that can throw off many photodetectors.
Some solar simulators use a series of LED lights to cover the entire spectrum of light radiated by the sun, with each light being tuneable to adjust for test specifications.
