The FTMC50-SCL is a high efficiency, ultra-broad spectral range, precisely tunable filter for supercontinuum lasers, with a wavelength-independent output bandwidth.
The device can couple directly to the output optic of a variety of high-powered supercontinuum lasers, protecting internal gratings with selectable filters and a dynamic beam expander. It outputs monochromatic light either into a multimode fibre, or through a free-space optic. The latter produces a high intensity collimated monochromatic output beam of constant or dynamically alterable width. A single unit can work from the UV (< 400 nm) to the infrared (>2400 nm) using up to 3 diffraction gratings and 6 filters.
The FTMC50-SCL excels wherever high intensity light of particular spectral parameters is required, including:
- Photoluminescence spectroscopy
- Fluorescence imaging
- Detector responsivity / QE evaluation
With it's dynamically variable wavelength, a single FTMC50-SCL with a suitable driving supercontinuum laser can in many applications replace a large number of different wavelength lasers.
The FTMC50-SCL brings the flexibility and precision of monochromators to laser light -- without burned gratings!
The wavelength selection mechanism is tried-and-tested. It utilises the same technology as is available in our top-line monochromators, offering incredibly precise and accurate positioning of the internal diffraction grating.
The FTMC50-SCL has room for three diffraction gratings, and due to its dynamic beam expander, can be configured to work with a large variety of conventional gratings. Together with the choice of free-space or fibre output, this great flexibility allows us to configure the FTMC50-SCL to your requirements.
Remote InterfaceIf you want to automate your testing or integrate the light source into a bigger system, the FTMC50-SCL has a simple USB text-based remote interface compatible with any modern computer and operating system, without drivers. The protocol is based on the widely-used SCPI syntax. We also provide development tools and libraries including Windows SDK and terminal, and a cross-platform python package (bendev).
