NKT Photonics

Mar 2013
In Denmark, NKT Photonics’ Lasse Leick has received the 2012 Pasteur Award from the Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation for his work on developing a broadband infrared laser that emits between 2 and 4 µm. The award, named after French scientist Louis Pasteur, is presented to a project manager “who is particularly able to translate high-tech knowledge into social value,” the foundation said. It comes with a cash prize of DKK 75,000 (about $13,000). The supercontinuum laser, called IR SuperK, has a powerful infrared light that enables molecules to be identified and analyzed significantly faster than before. The device could have applications in cancer research, disease identification and food safety.

An instrument consisting essentially of a tube 160 mm long, with an objective lens at the distant end and an eyepiece at the near end. The objective forms a real aerial image of the object in the focal plane of the eyepiece where it is observed by the eye. The overall magnifying power is equal to the linear magnification of the objective multiplied by the magnifying power of the eyepiece. The eyepiece can be replaced by a film to photograph the primary image, or a positive or negative relay...
