Researchers create the Jimi Hendrix of lasers

Posted by in categories: innovation, materials

Photonics experts at Heriot-Watt university are hailing a breakthrough in laser research.

They have come up with a new and relatively inexpensive way of creating a laser supercontinuum.

They hope it could eventually have applications in bio-imaging and optical communications.

Generation of a supercontinuum happens when intense laser light of a single colour travels through a material and then broadens into a spectrum of colours.
