"High Power Supercontinuum Fiber Lasers; Current Technology and Future Roadmap" by Ross Hodder
Friday, November 15, 2013 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Room 102

Ross Hodder
Product Manager – Scientific Lasers

The first commercial Supercontinuum “White-Light Lasers” came on to the market in 2005 combining the relatively new technologies of Microstructured Optical Fiber and ultrafast fiber lasers.  Since this time there has been an order of magnitude increase in power levels available from supercontinuum lasers as well as other technical advancements. Here we describe how the core technology enables the unique performance of these systems and we present the technology roadmap for these versatile light sources.

The talk will cover the current major applications for Supercontinuum lasers, including the various spectral filtering options, as well as the potential future applications as performance increases and cost reduces.
Ross has worked at Fianium for nearly 5 years in product development, sales and marketing roles focusing mainly on Supercontinuum fiber lasers.  He works closely with the R&D and Engineering Teams to ensure technology development in-line with the dynamic and demanding requirements of Fianium’s scientific customers.  An important part of the role is gaining vital application knowledge from existing customers and potential new ones.
Ross has a degree in Physics with Lasers from the Optoelectronics Research Centre at the University of Southampton, UK, and continued working at the department after his studies specifically in the field of ultrafast fiber lasers.
