Project partner NKT Photonics is the leading supplier of lasers with a broad light spectrum. Used by many of the most innovative companies within bio-imaging, semiconductor inspection and scientific instrumentation, these lasers can replace multiple single line lasers. NKT Photonics has now released a new product which extends this spectral range into mid infrared. The laser emits more than 450 milliwatts of power in the infrared spectrum. This opens up new applications in gas sensing, such as those targeted by the QCAP project. The new MIR Super K is all-fiber based, and as a result is stable and maintenance free, compact and portable. The laser output is delivered via a fiber which allows for great flexibility for integration into sensing systems. This system will be the basis of the mid-IR laser technology provided by NKT Photonics to other partners in the QCAP project.
