NKT Photonics has introduced SuperK MIR, a white light laser in the mid-infrared which delivers more than 450 mW of continuous light from 0.9 to 4.2 µm. The source features a monolithic all-fiber architecture ensuring stability and maintenance-free operation over thousands of hours.

Supercontinuum white light lasers have long been the light source of choice. They are used in demanding applications ranging from fluorescence microscopy to bioscience, to spectroscopic and industrial metrology with its ultra-wide spectrum, diffraction-limited beam quality, and robust fiber architecture. The SuperK MIR now offers the same advantages as the visible and near-infrared sources with a mid-infrared output, based on the NKT Photonics proven supercontinuum platform.

Statement from Jesper Toft Olsen, Supercontinuum Product Line Manager
“At NKT Photonics, we have built mid-infrared supercontinuum lasers for a number of years for selected customers, and we are excited to now release a source worthy of the SuperK brand, that lives up to our strict requirements on quality, reliability, and ease-of use.”

The new laser is compatible with FTIR spectrometers for fast detection and short integration time across the entire spectrum. Applications of this source range from component characterization, mid-IR microscopy, gas- and combustion spectroscopy to environmental sensing and standoff detection. The SuperK MIR is, so far, released for sale in Europe, Asia, and Australia and is available now.
