Supercontinuum laser generation is a process where laser light is converted to light with a very broad spectral bandwidth. It is better explained as a super-wide continuous optical spectrum hence the name. The spectral broadening is usually accomplished by propagating optical pulses through a strongly nonlinear device.

New Advancements Into Micro Sized Terahertz Laser Technology. Terahertz radiation is the band of electromagnetic radiation whose wavelengths exist between microwaves and visible light and is though to have multiple possible applications in security and medical diagnostics. Such devices will require the development of compact, low-power, high-quality terahertz lasers.

New Laser Technology from the U.K. Researchers at the University of Bath, United Kingdom have created a new kind of laser capable of pulsed and continuous mid-infrared (IR) emission between 3.1 and 3.2 microns, a spectral range that has long presented a major challenge for laser developers. The achievement could aid in the development of […]
