NKT Photonics, Birkerød, Denmark, is introducing the next generation SuperK EXTREME eco-system, which offers a product range spanning different spectra and power levels and an accessory portfolio including on-the-fly variation of repetition rate, flexible wavelength tuning systems, and optimized spectral shaping options for applications in fluorescence microscopy, flow cytometry, FLIM, FRET, OCT, and non-contact inspection.
A complete re-designed software suite, SuperKontrol, allows full PC control of the SuperK EXTREME system through a straightforward graphic user interface. An additional software development kit further extends the flexibility of the SuperK EXTREME system, allowing users to meet their most demanding critical timing sequences or triggering requirements. The core of the SuperK EXTREME system is based on NKT Photonics' photonic crystal fiber technology.
The new SuperK EXTREME and accessories carry a unique on-board intelligence which provides true Plug ‘n’ play operation. Users simply connect modules together without the need for special setup or configuration and the SuperK automatically takes cares of installation and control. Moreover, this intelligence allows the user to upgrade the SuperK EXTREME to another power or spectral level on-site without having to return the system to the factory. Thus, users can incrementally build and expand their SuperK system to cater for their evolving application needs over time.
