Hamamatsu Photonics has developed a high-brightness supercontinuum light source that delivers high stability equivalent to that of Xenon lamps and so allows high-precision and high-resolution measurements.

Hamamatsu Photonics has newly developed a supercontinuum light source (also called the “SC light source”) that produces higher brightness approximately 1000 times higher than our typical Xenon lamps. At the same time it ensures high stability equivalent to that of Xenon lamps by optimizing output conditions and also using a high nonlinear optical fiber as the nonlinear optical material. This newly developed SC light source is targeting for complex structure of semiconductor optical measurements. We will officially release products from this spring.

This SC light source was jointly developed with the Prof. Norihiko Nishizawa research group at Nagoya University, Japan, and will be exhibited at the “PHOTON FAIR 2018” to be held for every 5 years at Act City Hamamatsu (Naka-ku, Hamamatsu City, Japan) from November 1st (Thursday) to 3rd (Saturday). We will also exhibit this SC light source at the “Photonics West 2019 Exhibition” to be held at the Moscone Center, San Francisco (California, USA) from February 5 (Tuesday) to February 7 (Thursday), 2019.
