We use the SuperK for measuring photodetectors based on graphene and 2d materials. Because it’s broadband and it’s very easy to select a single or multiple wavelengths, it’s perfect for our work. In addition, the SuperK is very stable and reliable; it has never broken down in 4 years.

Broad as a lamp, bright as a laser

The SuperK EVO lasers deliver high brightness white light in the 400-2400 nm range. The light is fiber-delivered with a pristine beam quality, ready to use as-is, or for further filtering and beam shaping to fit your application.

While the output spectrum of the SuperK EVO is like that of a lamp, the brightness is 100 times higher. Combined with a standard repetition rate up to 78 MHz and output power of up to 2 W, the SuperK EVO line is optimized for speed and throughput.

Use it for optical device characterization, sorting, test & measurement, or 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.
