Exciton continues its more than 40 year history in supplying the highest quality laser dyes, absorber dyes, and specialty chemicals.
We continuously strive to bring new dyes to market across spectral regions from the infrared to the ultraviolet, and we introduce the latest science in the form of new dyes with superior performance.
For ease of reference, the number in the dye name indicates the approximate peak lasing or absorption wavelength
Dyes and dye lasers still provide the unique combinations of power, pulse length, wavelength and reliability that are required for many applications from materials research to medicine.
Our products are used in research laboratories and medical offices around the world.
Selective light filtration (absorption) is key to the performance of many optical products from ophthalmic lenses for laser protection and enhanced contrast, to displays, to filters for digital sensors (cameras).
Our non-fluorescent narrow band visible and infrared dyes are incorporated into products that are sold globally.
Our niche offering in specialty chemicals includes a wide variety of structures and functions derived from our dye chemistry work, some on a custom basis. We offer, for example, dyes for photolithography (triplet sensitizers), biological probes (including, in some cases specific isomers), porphine (the most basic porphyrin), and other specialty chemicals upon request. Please contact us for your custom dye-related requirements.
We want you to be completely satisfied with your dye purchase from Exciton. If the product that you ordered from us does not meet the specifications on our website, please contact us within 10 days of delivery to arrange for a prompt refund, credit or replacement.
All sales are final. For the complete terms of sale, see Terms of Sale. At Exciton's sole discretion, we may require our customers ("Buyers") to sign and return an acknowledgement of the Terms of Sale prior to accepting a customer's purchase order.
For over 4 decades, Exciton has invested in complementary technologies of highly fluorescent dyes, including laser dyes, and selective absorber dyes, including both visible and infrared absorbing dyes for optical filters, from laser protective eyewear to digital camera filters.
Exciton excels in the production of high purity dyes, which is critical in laser dyes for maximizing dye laser output, in sensitizing dyes for photolithographic applications, and in absorbing dyes where impurities can lead to losses in luminous transmission or may introduce haze or scattering in laser filters.
Exciton carries out a wide range of new product and new process development activities to support its broad customer base. In addition, Exciton customizes and formulates dyes using our unique combination of chemistry and optical engineering capabilities. As one example of such projects, we manufacture high thermal stability dyes for polycarbonate molders who produce the highest optical quality filters.
Exciton's new, modern facility near Columbus, Ohio includes both glass and stainless steel reactors for the production of dye intermediates and dyes, as well as associated products.
Let Exciton apply its proprietary art in dye technology for you today!
Safety and technical information is available for immediate review at our website Catalog, and additional technical information concerning the use of the dyes is furnished without obligation by phone or email.
For example, our dye selection filters may narrow choices to a few dyes, and further assistance by phone or email may lead to a ranked list of the preferred options, so please don’t hesitate to call or write.
Our expertise is specialty dyes and chemicals; therefore, except in rare instances, all the dyes listed on our website are in stock for prompt delivery. Orders received before about 10 am ET are generally shipped the same day; those after 10 am ET generally ship the next day per the customer’s preferred method.
Orders are accepted by phone, fax, or preferably email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Pre-payment, credit cards (MC, Visa) and purchase orders (Net30 with approved credit) are all accepted.
