Crystal creates a supercontinuum breakthrough

Posted by in categories: innovation, materials

Researchers have generated a wide range of colors from a single laser after discovering a new process for achieving so-called “supercontinuum generation.”

Supercontinuum generation is when intense of one color travels within a material, like glass, and broadens into a spectrum of colors.

The effect lets scientists produce light at colors tailored to particular applications in sectors like bioimaging, optical communications and fundamental studies of materials.
