SuperLight Photonics Unveils World’s First Portable Wideband Laser at SPIE Photonics West 2024
Enschede, 18 December 2023 – SuperLight Photonics, a pioneer company for supercontinuum lasers, will showcase the SLP-1000, the first portable wideband laser, at Photonics West. Its innovative concept stands out in the industry and offers a portable, high-quality, fully coherent, and unrivaled light source for industrial and bio-medical imaging applications. Traditionally, supercontinuum lasers have been bulky, heavy, and power-hungry, limiting their applications. SuperLight Photonics has redefined this landscape by miniaturizing the supercontinuum laser into a handheld Photon-IC (PIC) device, an industry first. Since its recent press release, the SLP-1000, featuring supercontinuum laser generation (SCG), has gained attention for its portability, low power consumption, and battery-operated design, unlocking unprecedented in-field applications. Mounted on a drone, it supports aerial surveillance, precision farming, and crop monitoring. Handheld devices extend to forensics, material and surface inspection, environmental sensing, and quality control, bringing the SCG laser lab to the field. Cees Links, CEO of SuperLight Photonics, expresses excitement about showcasing this innovative approach at CES. He states, "Our miniaturized SCG to a Photon-IC stands out in the industry, earning high customer traction and market interest. The SLP-1000 is a perfect fit for forensics, agriculture, biomedical, and spectroscopy applications. To better understand the advantages of wideband lasers compared to monochromatic lasers, consider the difference between color TVs and black-and-white TVs: the superiority of the color TV doesn’t need additional explanation." The SuperLight Photonics participation perfectly aligns with the Photonics West innovation ambitions, providing attendees with insights into the booming future of photonics.
