Description of the challenges faced by the Tech Project

White light supercontinuum light source. The laser is high power and not eye safe so the artist will have to go through laser safety training to understand how this can be used in a safe way for artistic projects.

Brief description of technology

The SuperK Supercontinuum Accessory range has been designed to further increase the flexibility of the SuperK supercontinuum light sources. The accessories allow access to either particular spectral ranges or specific wavelengths within the ultra broad SuperK spectrum. All accesories are “plug and play” with any SuperK supercontinuum laser, which then controls and powers the accessory.

What the project is looking to gain from the collaboration and what kind of artist would be suitable
