Zinc and Cadmium Lamps

The Zinc and Cadmium Lamps are designed primarily for use with the UV absorption cells and detectors and are frequently used in air pollution monitoring devices.

Zinc and Cadmium Lamps


  • Air pollution monitoring
  • Analytical Instrumentation
  • Wavelength Calibration
  • Spectroscopy


Main Features

  • Zinc lamps can also substitute for deuterium lamps in some applications due to the zinc lamps' superior thermal stability, long life and prominent 214nm energy peak
  • The electrical leads enter the lamp base either at the perimeter of the base (side/radial leads) or straight into the center of the base (end/axial leads)
  • Lead lengths are also optional
