Newport Announces SCG-02 Wavelength Extender

Irvine, CA (PressExposure) January 27, 2012 -- Newport Corporation, a worldwide leader in lasers and photonics solutions that Make, Manage and Measure Light®, introduces the SCG-02 Wavelength Extender to their line of nonlinear microscopy and spectroscopy application solutions. The Wavelength Extender is specifically designed as 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.

Ideal for a variety of spectroscopy and microscopy applications, the laser input is split into two parallel beams: a) the fundamental pump, and b) parallel, unfiltered broadband supercontinuum. This unique flexibility allows for both the external selection of particular spectra of interest, and the 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 pre-aligned and can be easily integrated into ultrafast light sources to provide turnkey solutions for multimodal spectroscopy and imaging. It can be used with two-photon microscopes for additional modalities and enhances pump-probe imaging and spectroscopy capabilities.

Features include manual controls to attenuate fundamental throughput and to generate parallel, broadband supercontinuum output. The robust and reliable device is designed to preserve the beam path and the tuning range of the pump source. For more information, please go to http://www.newport.com/SCG-02-PR09.
