SuperK FIANIUM

SuperK FIANIUM – our flagship supercontinuum white light laser

The SuperK FIANIUM supercontinuum white light lasers are broad as a lamp and bright as a laser. They deliver high brightness diffraction-limited light in the entire 390-2400 nm region. By adding one of our filters, the SuperK can be converted into an ultra-tunable laser. Our supercontinuum lasers are maintenance-free and the monolithic fiber architecture ensures excellent reliability and a lifetime of thousands of hours.

Also available – SuperK FIANIUM OCT

The SuperK FIANIUM OCT series are broadband, low-noise sources designed for optical coherence tomography. Pair it with a broadband spectrometer to get the same performance as Ti:Sapphire-based OCT systems at much lower cost, smaller footprint, great mobility, and robustness.

The OCT series share the same maintenance-free, reliable, and robust platform as our SuperK FIANIUM series and runs 24/7. And they work by the flip of a switch.

A maintenance-free lifetime of thousands of hours

The SuperK series is based on NKT Photonics’ world-renowned Crystal Fibre technology that has reliably delivered supercontinuum to both commercial and academic users for over 15 years.

Our lasers are fully fiber monolithic which ensures excellent reliability and a lifetime of thousands of hours – as well as maintenance-free and alignment-free operation. For scientific applications, we offer a 2-year warranty.

Trusted quality

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 has ensured the longest continuous running lifetime in the market.

The SuperK FIANIUM is a cost-effective and user-friendly alternative to Ti:Sapphire solutions.
