Atlas launches new
filter technology
Atlas Material Testing has launched Right Light filter to be used in conjunction with xenon-arc technology. The Right Light filter, when combined with Atlas’ xenon-arc light technology, a quartz outer filter or a newly developed CIRA (coated infrared absorbing) outer filter, provides the close full spectrum match to natural sunlight available, according to the company. Recent applications done with the Right Light filter combination have shown that material degradation more closely matches that of end-use service environments. Additional, since the cut on the shore wavelength UV matches so well, experimenters can increase irradiance levels for greater acceleration without compromising correlation.
