Fianium UK Ltd.’s three new white-light supercontinuum lasers can generate >8 W of total output power and high spectral brightness in a continuous spectrum from 450 nm to >2 μm. The SC-450-8, a quasicontinuous system, operates at an 800-MHz repetition rate. The SC-450-8-PP incorporates an acousto-optic pulse picker to reduce the repetition rate in increments of 80, 40, 20, 10, 5, 2 and 1 MHz, enabling optimized fluorescence lifetime measurements and imaging. The SC-450-8-VE is a visibly enhanced version of the 8-W supercontinuum laser optimized for maximum spectral brightness in the visible portion of the spectrum. Delivering >1.5 W in a single-mode beam, its average visible brightness of >5 mW/nm makes it suitable for applications such as flow cytometry and fluorescence lifetime imaging.

GLOSSARY
continuous spectrum
The radiation spectrum of matter found in condensed states, liquid or solid, that is continuous and not a line spectrum. The details of this spectrum are almost independent of the matter emitting the radiation.
flow cytometry
A method of measuring the characteristics of microscopic particles, usually cells, as they flow in a fluid stream through a beam of light. Particles may be stained with fluorescent dye and the fluorescence detected via laser illumination.
fluorescence microscopy
Observation of samples using excitation produced fluorescence. A sample is placed within the excitation laser and the plane of observation is scanned. Emitted photons from the sample are filtered by a long pass dichroic optic and are detected and recorded for digital image reproduction. 
white light
Light perceived as achromatic, that is, without hue.
