Santec USA Corp.Request Info
LIGHT SOURCE Model UWS-1000, an ultrawideband light source manufactured by Santec Corp., generates supercontinuum light with an optical spectrum from 1200 to 2000 nm. Spectral power density is more than 230 dBm/nm, and the company says that spectral emission is flatter than that produced by conventional EDFA-based amplified spontaneous emission light sources or LEDs. It is suitable for rapid evaluation of optical components in coarse WDM and passive optical network systems, and for spectroscopy and remote sensing.

optical spectrum
1.) Generally, the electromagnetic spectrum within the wavelength region extending from the vacuum ultraviolet at 40 nm to the far-infrared at 1 mm. 2.) The wavelength or color distribution found in a white light source once passed through a grating, prism, or other dispersive optical element.  
supercontinuum light
A broadband, white-light source produced by high-intensity light pulses propagating in various media. High-energy, ultrashort pulses experience strong nonlinear interactions, such as self-phase modulation, cross-phase modulation, harmonic generation, four-wave mixing, and Raman scattering when propagating through matter. These interactions can broaden the spectrum of the light by as much as two orders of magnitude in some cases. The resultant broadband light, referred to as a supercontinuum,...
