      Ultrafast Laser Systems Are Stepping Up to Meet Industry Needs

      The wide spectral bandwidth of ultrafast lasers also is useful in optical coherence tomography, widely used to provide 3-D images of tissue. Here, the very broad spectral output of supercontinuum lasers allows for very high axial resolution imaging in multiple user-defined wavelength bands optimized for the tissue being imaged. “The high power and spectral brightness of supercontinuum lasers also allows for deep-tissue imaging, such as in highly scattering media, or in vivo imaging, where signal levels can be very low,” Seaton said.
