SuperK EVO industrial supercontinuum lasers

The SuperK EVO supercontinuum white light lasers are cost-efficient lasers based on our extremely reliable fiber laser technology. The lasers are stable, reliable, maintenance-free, and ensure a low cost of ownership - perfect for OEM integration in demanding commercial applications.

Broad as a lamp, bright as a laser

The SuperK EVO platform delivers high brightness white light in the entire 405-2400 nm range. The light is fiber delivered with pristine beam quality ready to use as-is, or for further filtering and beam shaping to fit your application.

High repetition rate and output power – when speed matters

With a standard repetition rate of 20, 30, or 78 MHz and output power of up to 2 W, the SuperK EVO line is optimized for speed and throughput. Use it for test & measurement and optical device characterization, or for bio-imaging applications such as Fluorescence-Lifetime Imaging Microscopy.

All EVO models have output triggers that ensure your equipment is in perfect sync and ready to work when you are.

Install and forget for thousands of hours

Our renowned Photonic Crystal Fiber (PCF) technology is the heart of the SuperK EVO. This solid-state, all-fiber architecture ensures a reliable 24/7 operation and a maintenance-free lifetime of thousands of hours. Continuous testing of multiple systems has ensured the longest lifetime in the market. Intended for industrial use, the EVO is easy to mount and handle due to its rugged and compact design. Reliability, quality, and performance are ensured through the DIN ISO 9000 certified processes.

EVO line models

The SuperK EVO line comes in two major varieties: The EVO and the EVO HP. The EVO HP is the high power model with the broadest spectral range and the highest spectral power density. The EVO is passively cooled, and for the HP model, you can choose between air or water cooling.

Choose from repetition rates of 20, 30, or 78 MHz.

Easy to control from the graphical user interface

You can get the utmost user-friendly operation through our NKT Photonics CONTROL software or a direct interface through the free software development kit.

Need accessories? Filters, splitters, broadband delivery?

If configured with collimated output, you can use your SuperK EVO with all existing SuperK filters and accessories.

Are you looking for a filter? Perhaps a tunable high-contrast filter, a tunable single-line filter, a tunable multi-line filter? Or a spectral supercontinuum splitter? We got it. 

Warranty extension

If you wish, you can extend the standard 24-month warranty with an extra 12 or 24 months.
