UV Irradiation Unit PDC-8

UV Irradiation Unit PDC-8

PDC-8 is an optional product with easy detachable attachment for Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC) which enables the detection of photochemical reaction such as UV curing. Sample curing behavior can be detected in real-time, and wavelength and irradiation intensity dependence can also be analyzed.


The PDC-8 is used with high sensitivity DSC which delivers stable baseline with low noise and gives you precise results even for experiments on thin films and minute samples. Irradiating the ultraviolet visible light through optical fiber from directly above the sample and the reference makes extremely high irradiation intensity possible.
Irradiation intensity is adjustable by light quantity of light source and continuous variable ND filter. Also, wavelength can be easily selected with interference filter. A multi-function shutter controller can set irradiation time in 0.1 sec increments and its open/close can be done automatically and manually. The PDC-8 is used for material development and quality control in photosetting resin or resist manufacturers as well as for evaluation of production processes that use such materials.
