    Market for the ultra-broadband sources and related technology estimated at $50 million, with microscopy a key application. After transitioning from a laboratory curiosity to a genuine commercial tool in recent years, supercontinuum sources have emerged to create a fledgling marketplace. The point was one of several made by Wilhelm Kaenders, co-founder and co-president of Toptica Photonics, at the Lasers & Photonics Marketplace Seminar in San Francisco last week. “This new light source is finding applications in fields ranging from optical coherence tomography (OCT), frequency metrology, and fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM), to optical communications and gas sensing,” he told the conference ...
