Deployable scintillometer for ocean turbulence using superluminescent LED

This article is brought to you by: 

The latest whitepaper from Wavelength Electronics reveals how a superluminescent light emitting diode (SLED) served as the scintillometer source for optical ocean turbulence characterisation in place of a commonly used laser diode. Wavelength Electronics' LDTC1020 laser diode and temperature controller provided the stable current and temperature required in the portable design.
