This combo contains the GL Xenon Flashlight and the GL Analyzer PL405 kit without Long Wave Pass Filter (LWPF).
Please contact us and/or indicate if you have a spectrometer prior to model 2014 (2011 - 13); we will include the required filter.
The GL Analyzer PL405 kit converts your GL Gem Spectrometer (2015) into a "poor man's version" of a PL spectrometer as found in the GL Gem Raman PL532 or the new GL Gem Spectrometer NIR PL405. The results for obtaining luminescence spectra from ruby, sapphire, emerald, spinel, alexandrite, etc. are very good.
The GL Gem Spectrometer in PL mode (PL spectroscopy) can be used to identify gems and minerals by their chromophores; there is also great potential for diamond characterization. It will detect the GR1 center for irradiated diamonds and the Si center often seen in CVD grown diamonds (in some cases without LN cooling) and polymer treatment in jadeite.
The GL Analyzer PL405/Xenon Flashlight Combo Kit contains:
- Low cost 50 mW focusable blue laser (405 - 410 nm), Class 2
- Tripod stand to position laser
- GL Xenon Flashlight
- 4x 16340 Lithium batteries with charger or power supply (120 - 240 V)
- Laser Safety Goggles for 190 nm - 550 nm, OD+6, VLPR >65%, CE certified
- Instructions for setup and use of the kit
This kit can also be used with a LW UV LED (365nm) flashlight such as Nichia, Engin or similar high quality LEDs; mercury-vapor SW and LW lamps are not recommended.
The GL Halogen Flashlight is an ideal external light source as it has a similar emission curve as the built-in halogen light bulb in the GL Gem Light Holder.
For your own protection always use laser safety goggles when operating any type of laser equipment.
