Titanium Doped Quartz Flashlamps
The UV transmission properties of quartz can be modified by the incorporation of titanium oxide as a dopant. The quartz still appears clear but the UV transmission will be modified.
Use these flashlamps to eliminate UV and UV damage to Nd:YAG rods, reflectors, plastics and “O” rings.
Titanium doped quartz is a clear fused quartz doped with titanium oxide and is available in many different grades, each one having a different UV cut off profile. It has similar characteristics to cerium doped quartz but does not have the fluorescence characteristic. This material is frequently used in non-laser flashlamps when ozone must be prevented.
