Samba Compact Supercontinuum Laser
SAMBA is a compact supercontinuum laser that offers multiple wavelengths from UV to IR with a flat, stable, broadband spectrum and a fibered output. Turn-key, benchtop, maintenance-free, robust and user-friendly, supercontinuum sources are several orders of magnitude brighter than incandescent lamps and offer greater spectral bandwidth than sLEDs. They are convenient for general purpose laboratory applications such as spectroscopy, optical component characterization, interferometry, optical metrology , fluorescence microscopy and more.
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 ( spectral broadening) , otherwise called a supercontinuum.
Leukos 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.
Supercontinuum lasers are light sources that combine the benefits of broadband lamps (ultraviolet/visible/infrared emission) and lasers (excellent beam quality , spatial coherence, and high brightness). Since 2006, Leukos has been offering compact supercontinuum solutions to universities, research institutes and industry worldwide.
