SuperK Gauss

Photonic Solutions is now distributing NKT Photonics' SuperK Gauss, a dual-output filter that transforms the broadband output of a supercontinuum laser to provide a gaussian-like output with a wide bandwidth.

The SuperK Gauss provides two gaussian-shaped spectra with different centre wavelengths, which can be used simultaneously and independently from each other. The SuperK Gauss also allows the tuning of the centre wavelength of each band over a 200nm range.

The SuperK Gauss used in conjunction with the SuperK extreme supercontinuum is especially suited to optical coherence tomography and white light interferometric applications.

For these applications the wide spectral bandwidth of the Gauss improves the axial resolution providing a smooth, clean spectrum, dramatically reducing the number of image artefacts hence resulting in images with both resolution and detail.
