SuperK FIANIUM High Power Supercontinuum laser

The SuperK FIANIUM series is our no-compromise range of supercontinuum white light lasers. It offers the shortest cut-in wavelength, the most visible power, and the highest total power available. All this combined with exceptional lifetime and the highest of safety standards. Choose the SuperK FIANIUM for applications where power and flexibility are key.

SuperK FIANIUM provides a broadband single-mode output across the entire 410-2400 nm range. Operating in the MHz repetition rate range with picosecond pulses, it effectively enables both steady-state and lifetime measurements. The inherently robust all-fiber design provides unsurpassed performance combined with ease of use and maintenance-free operation.

Typical output spectrum

Variable repetition rate (pulse picker)

The pulse picker option allows the repetition rate of the SuperK FIANIUM to be easily changed while the system is running at full output. The variable repetition rates gives the user ultimate choice for lifetime measurement applications.

  • ­ Ideal for FLIM, FRET, and diffuse optical tomography
  • 2-78 MHz on-the-fly variable repetition rate with 23 steps (> 1:10,000 Pulse Suppression ratio)
  • NIM standard trigger output (directly usable for FLIM)
  • Timing delay generator
Repetition rate reduction 78 – 2 MHz (23 steps3))
Pulse suppression ratio > 1:10,000
Changing repetition rate 1) < 1 s
Timing trigger output jitter < 20 ps
NIM trigger output (BNC) ~0 – >-0.8 V peak
Monitor trigger output (BNC) 0 – 1 V
Adjustable trigger delay timing 2) Up to 9.2 ns
Adjustable trigger delay resolution 2) 15 ps

1) The system does not need to be electrically shut down.
2) The electrical output trigger signal can be delayed up to 9.2 ns in steps of 15 ps. This enables trigger delay optimization without the need for a expensive delay box. Adjustable from front panel.
3) The steps are specified on http://www.nktphotonics.com/superk

Power Lock (external power locking)

The Power Lock option enables you to lock the power at any place in a setup. Simply place a photo detector at the desired location and connect the detector to the External Feedback BNC connector of the SuperK FIANIUM. Activate locking from the control panel and the system will now lock the power level at the position of the photo detector—automatically compensating for any drift or variation in external components up to 100 Hz.

  • Custom MHz repetition rate on request
  • On-the-Fly variable repetition rate (pulse picker)
  • 12 and 24 months warranty extension packages
