Tunability and short pulses
The collimated output enables tight focusing and the short pulses, down to 20 ps, make it ideal for studying ultrafast photochemical processes.
Robustness and reliability
The SuperK EXTEND-UV is a paradigm shift in UV light sources. Like large solid-state lasers, it provides tunability and short pulses but at a fraction of the cost and with the robustness and reliability of fiber lasers.
The EXTEND-UV is alignment-free – simply click in the SuperK collimator and turn on the system. The output wavelength is easily controlled from our CONTROL software our through our SDK.
Superior wavelength coverage and beam quality
Compared to UV LEDs, the supercontinuum-powered EXTEND-UV provides superior wavelength coverage, beam quality, tunability and pulses that are an order of magnitude shorter.
Source-dependent performance and output
The performance and output characteristics of the system depend on the Supercontinuum source used. We recommend the SuperK EXTREME EXW-12 or the EXR-15/EXR-20 for maximum output.

The SuperK EXTEND-UV is available in two different models; DUV and UV. The performance and output characteristics of the system depends on the Supercontinuum source used. We recommend the SuperK EXTREME EXW-12 or the EXR-15/EXR-20 for maximum average power or the SuperK COMPACT for a very cost effective high pulse energy system.
