San Francisco, February 5th 2014.
A special anniversary symposium took place at SPIE Photonics West 2014, celebrating the discovery of supercontinuum 45 years ago by Robert Alfano, The City College of New York. For this occasion, several talks were given by distinguished pioneers of supercontinuum research (details here).
As a key supplier of supercontinuum sources, LEUKOS naturally supported this unique event and was honored to receive Pr. Alfano at its booth. It was a great opportunity to exchange views about the evolution of supercontinuum technology and its biomedical applications.
