Broadband High-Brightness Sources for Spectroscopy
January 01, 2019
Columns: Lasers and Optics Interface
In the near past, discharge lamps, dye lasers, and optical parametric oscillators were the only useful sources for spectroscopy. New broadband sources, such as supercontinuum lasers, laser-driven plasma sources, and high-brightness light-emitting diodes (LEDs), are now
available. We look at what these options offer for spectroscopy.
