A cutting-edge laser technology
Leukos supercontinuum laser sources are based on the development and use of new generation optical fibers. These waveguides enable an extreme confinement of the electromagnetic field and a high conversion efficiency by means of nonlinear effects. The interaction of a high peak power pump laser with the material constituting the fiber allows to generate a multitude of wavelengths, i.e., a supercontinuum.
Our supercontinuum lasers cover wavelengths from UV (320 nm) to mid-IR (4500 nm), with different modes of operation (from pulse-on-demand (10 Hz) to quasi-CW (MHz)) and different pulse widths (picosecond, sub-nanosecond, nanosecond). The desired spectral band as well as the spatial profile of the fiber output beam can be adapted to the target application.
