The SuperK COMPACT can be found in laboratories around the World where it is the daily driver for many users within applications like component characterization, test & measurement, spectroscopy, and OCT or simply as a general-purpose laboratory white light source.
The SuperK COMPACT can be triggered externally and synced with low jitter up to 20 kHz. The trigger signal can be provided to a standard coax input or to the industrial trigger input that galvanically isolated.
Reliability and long lifetime
The core of the SuperK systems is based on the world-renowned Crystal Fibre Photonic Crystal Fiber (PCF) technology, which has been deployed in commercial and academic markets for over a decade. NKT Photonics is the largest manufacturer of PCF technology and reliability, quality and performance are ensured through DIN ISO 9000 certified processes.
Continuous testing of multiple systems during and after the development phase of the SuperK systems has ensured the longest continuous running lifetime in the market.
- Cost-efficient broadband source
- High brightness and long lifetime
- Visible to IR light in one module
- Input pulse trigger
- Variable repetition rate
- Flexible accessory range
- Alternative to ASE sources, lamps and SLDs
- Reliable and maintenance-free 24/7 operation
Combine the COMPACT with a computer-controlled filter from our supercontinuum accessory range and turn the white light source into an ultra-broadband tunable laser, and control it all through the NKT Photonics CONTROL software.
