The LLTF Contrast is a continuously tunable high-resolution bandpass filter that effectively converts a NKT Photonics’ supercontinuum source into a widely tunable picoseconds laser. The filter transmits, with high efficiency, a single laser line while blocking unwanted lines with excellent out-of-band suppression.
The LLTF Contrast is a non-dispersive filter maintaining the intrinsic single-mode beam quality of the supercontinuum laser enabling a wide range of applications. With two wavelength tuning options, Visible and NIR, the full spectrum of the supercontinuum can be covered.
The LLTF Contrast is compatible with all NKT Photonics Supercontinuum lasers and is fully plug-and-play – adapting directly to the supercontinuum output collimator.
Control is via USB 2.0 and intuitive Graphical User Interface
The output of the LLTF Contrast is compatible with SuperK CONNECT and SuperK Fiber deliveries (recommend FD7 for VIS and FD8 for SWIR) .
