Supercontinuum white light lasers: a review on technology and applications
Author(s): Nicolai Granzow

Paper Abstract

Supercontinuum "White Light Lasers" have become a well-established turn-key fiber-laser technology addressing a wide range of applications from bio-medical-imaging to optical device characterization, where they add value due to their unique combination of optical parameters, including an extremely wide spectral coverage from 400 nm to 2400 nm, several W of optical output power, and a perfect Gaussian beam that can be focused down to the diffraction limit. This review introduces the state-of-the-art technology and some applications.
