SC4500 - Mid-IR Supercontinuum Laser, 1.3 to 4.5 ?m

Thorlabs Mid-IR Supercontinuum Laser

The SC4500 is the world’s first commercially available femtosecond-laser-pumped Mid-IR Supercontinuum Laser Source.

This supercontinuum laser emits over a wavelength range from approximately 1.3 ?m to 4.5 ?m (7700 cm-1 to 2200 cm-1) with >300 mW of average output power in a collimated beam. More than 110 mW of the output power is within the 2.2 – 4.2 µm (4500 cm-1 – 2400 cm-1) range, which overlaps with many gas absorption lines and other molecular signatures.

The pulsed femtosecond oscillator driving the supercontinuum runs at a fixed repetition rate of 50 MHz. The brightness of the SC4500 laser exceeds traditional Globars and even synchrotron sources by orders of magnitude.

  • 300 mW Output Power Over Entire Bandwidth
  • >110 mW Output Power over 2.2 – 4.2 µm
  • 0.025% (Typical) Intensity Noise Enables Highly Sensitive Measurements
  • Robust All-Fiber Design for Hands-Off, Reliable Operation
  • Record-High Brightness Enables Remote and Standoff Detection
  • Compatible with Standard FTIR Spectrometers
