Evolution of the Supercontinuum Light Source
Evolution of the Supercontinuum Light Source
For many applications, coherent light at a single frequency is more than adequate. But having a light source that combines the properties of a laser with the broad bandwidth of an incandescent bulb and a short pulse duration opens up a new realm of possibilities in medical imaging, communications, displays and materials studies.

New Laser Technologies Displacing Old
New Laser Technologies Displacing Old
High-power fiber and diode lasers are reshaping the materials processing sector, while powerful blue lasers are finding their niche in select welding applications. For some CO2 laser applications, the end is at hand, with fiber lasers having almost totally replaced the older technology. Another shift currently brewing is due to the arrival of high-power diode lasers, which are impacting materials processing and driving down the cost of ultrafast lasers through the advent of direct diode pumping.
