NP Photonics to Launch Mid-IR Supercontinuum Laser

NP Photonics, Inc., a leading manufacturer of fiber lasers, fiber amplifiers and specialty optical fiber, today announced that it will introduce a mid-infrared (IR) supercontinuum fiber laser, called the SpectraChrome™ laser, at LASER World of PHOTONICS 2013 from May 13-16, in Munich, Germany.

The SpectraChrome laser is the first laser source to be launched from the company's new family of mid-infrared products.

The SpectraChrome laser delivers a supercontinuum spectrum from < 1000 nm to > 4500 nm. This broad emission spectrum across the mid-IR represents a breakthrough in technology that offers users a turnkey, ultra-broadband, IR source in a compact, reliable package.

"The SpectraChrome laser emits in a particular part of the spectrum that is key in sensing and spectroscopy," said Terry Hannon, president and CEO of NP Photonics. "Until now mid-IR lasers have been mostly discrete wavelength semiconductor devices or very expensive laser systems that include parametric oscillators with comparatively limited tunability. The SpectraChrome laser changes this paradigm and offers a flexible, cost-effective tool."

The new SpectraChrome laser is a quasi-continuous wave 30 MHz system producing picosecond pulses ideal for time-resolved metrology. The fiber-delivered output allows for easy integration into any tool or research environment.

The LASER World of PHOTONICS exhibition will be held at the New Munich Trade Fair Center. Attendees can visit NP Photonics, Inc. at booth B1.459.
