Description of the goods or services required

The Marine Optics and Remote Sensing Group has a long history of developing novel optical instrumentation for marine applications. Interests range from measuring bulk optical properties (e.g. absorption and transmission) of particle suspensions to holographic particle imaging and ultrafast fluorescence measurements. We have identified a number of potential applications for a supercontinuum laser source and plan to work with several UK and international partners on developing solutions that incorporate this device as a tuneable, collimated source with broad wavelength coverage.
