NKT Photonics’ new SuperK MIR are based on their existing supercontinuum platform, with the same benefits as the visible and near infrared sources with an output in the mid-infrared. The SuperK MIR laser delivers >450 mW of continuous light from 0.9 µm to 4.2 µm. The source features a monolithic all-fibre architecture ensuring stability and maintenance-free operation over thousands of hours. The mid-infrared light is delivered through a broadband collimator, offering flexibility and easy use. Like other sources from NKT Photonics, the laser is ready as soon as you switch it on and is easy to operate through NKT Photonics unified laser control software, CONTROL.
The new laser is compatible with FT-IR spectrometers for fast detection and short integration time across the entire spectrum. Applications of this source include component characterisation, mid-IR microscopy, gas and combustion spectroscopy, environmental sensing, and standoff detection.
