About Pulsed Light
What is Pulsed Light?
Pulsed Light is high-energy light delivered in fractions of a second. It’s a simple concept with profound ramifications because of its ability to produce megawatt of peak power while generating very little heat.
How is Pulsed Light Used?
Pulsed Light has been proven to be effective in many applications where high energy is needed to create a chemical change in a target, but where high temperatures would damage critical materials involved.
