Super continuum laser
LEUKOS "supercontinuum" sources are based on the development and use of new generation optical fibres.
These waveguides enable an extreme confinement of the electromagnetic field and a high frequency conversion efficiency by means of nonlinear effects. The interaction of the light delivered by a high power pump laser with the material constituting the fibre permits to generate a multitude of wavelengths (supercontinuum) from the ultraviolet to the infrared.
The desired spectral band as well as the spatial profile of the fibre output beam can be adapted to the targeted application.
