Supercontinuum White Light Lasers. Broadband Supercontinuum Lasers for Bio-Imaging
Supercontinuum white light laser, like the NKT Photonics’ SuperK EXTREME, combines the broadband radiation with the power and robustness of a fiber laser. One can access any wavelength in the 400 to 2400 nm range enabling optimal dye excitation. Also fluorescence lifetimes are easily measured with the short pulses from the lasers. Today supercontinuum lasers are used for numerous bio-imaging applications including OCT, confocal microscopy, FLIM, FRET and optical molecular imaging.
