Optical Setup with supercontinuum lights off

Optical setup with supercontinuum

Optical setup with sopercontinuum light source. Lights off. Nice colour spectra.  

Supercontinuum light is generated by passing a high-intensity laser pulse through a nonlinear medium such as a photonic crystal fiber (this optical setup). The nonlinear medium causes the laser light to self-phase-modulate, leading to spectral broadening through nonlinear effects such as self-phase modulation, four-wave mixing, and Raman scattering.
This light source generates a continuum of light that spans a broad range of wavelengths, typically from the visible to the near-infrared. The resulting spectrum is not only broad but also highly coherent and polarized,
Overall, the unique spectral properties of supercontinuum light can create stunning visual effects and provide valuable insights into the properties of materials. Its beauty is not just aesthetic but also functional, making it a valuable tool in a wide range of applications.
