Newport Corp. has introduced the SCG-02 wavelength extender to its line of nonlinear microscopy and spectroscopy application solutions. It is a modular solution for supercontinuum generation when used with femtosecond Ti:sapphire lasers, such as Newport Spectra-Physics’ Tsunami, MaiTai DeepSee and MaiTai ultrafast oscillators. The laser input is split into two parallel beams: the fundamental pump beam and an unfiltered broadband supercontinuum beam. This flexibility enables external selection of spectra of interest and independent use or recombination of both beams. The fundamental beam passes through an integrated attenuator to enable precise control of the output power. The SCG-02 is factory-preassembled and -prealigned and can be integrated into ultrafast light sources to provide solutions for multimodal spectroscopy and imaging. It can be used with two-photon microscopes.
