Continuous radiation from laser pulses

Licence partner wanted
Especially interesting for
  • photovoltaics
  • spectroscopy

A laser converter from PTB allows monochromatic, temporally continuous, intensive radiation to be generated across a wide spectral range for the first time. Hereby, pulsed laser radiation with a sufficiently high repetition rate (e.g. 80 MHz) is temporally homogenized by means of an optical device. A continuous light beam is available at the converter output; this light beam is tunable across the full wavelength range of the source – at narrow band and high luminance. The procedure is very well-suited, among other things, to calibrate solar cells or for spectroscopic applications, for example in biological-medical analysis.
