Thorlabs mid-IR supercontinuum source emits >300 mW average power

Feb. 28, 2017
The SC4500 femtosecond-pumped supercontinuum source spans the wavelength range from 1.3 to 4.5 μm.

The SC4500 femtosecond-pumped supercontinuum source spans the wavelength range from 1.3 to 4.5 μm. It emits more than 300 mW average power in a collimated beam. Light is generated by pumping a dispersion-engineered InF3 fiber with a high-power femtosecond fiber laser. Output noise is <0.025 RMS.
