Two new GREEN projects: GreenSense and Greenfruit

NORBLIS has landed two new projects on developing GREEN technologies.

GreenSense is focused on developing a laser-based system for detection of carbon isotopes that can be used to discriminate between fossil fuels and synthetic fuels made from hydrogen and captured CO2. The project is backed by the Eureka association through Innovation Fund Denmark (IFD).

GreenFruit is about monitoring of air quality in large scale fruit storage facilities to increase the shelf life and reduce food waste. The project is backed by the Eurostars program through Innovation Fund Denmark (IFD).

Two new projects on mid-infrared optical coherence tomography - TURBO and ZDZW

We are proud to announce our participation in two Horizon Europe projects that started in 2022:

  • TURBO - Towards turbine blade production with zero waste (turboproject.eu)
  • ZDZW - "Zero defects, zero waste" Non-Destructive Inspection Services for Digitally Enhanced Zero Waste Manufacturing (www.zdzw-project.eu)

In both projects, NORBLIS is tasked with developing a MIR OCT platform for industrial non-destructive inspection. Read more about the projects on their respective project websites linked above or on our LinkedIn page: https://www.linkedin.com/company/14050700

NORBLIS joins the fight to battle air pollution in 2021

We are excited to share the news that starting from early 2021, NORBLIS will be part of the Horizon 2020 project TRIAGE with the goal of developing a highly sensitive and portable air pollution detection system. The system will be based on the NORBLIS broadband supercontinuum source, enabling identification and quantification of several important air pollutants, that have a significant impact on human health and the environment. More information will follow in the new year. Sincerely, the NORBLIS team.

Webinar on Mid-Infrared Supercontinuum Generation in Optical Fibers May 20th

We from NORBLIS hope that you will stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, and if you are one of the many who are staying at home in these days, we have a suggestion for you:

If you are interested in learning more about mid-infrared supercontinuum generation, the core technology of NORBLIS, we suggest that you register for the upcoming webinar by NORBLIS co-founder Christian Rosenberg Petersen. The presentation will cover the history, physics, fiber design, pumping schemes, and applications of mid-IR supercontinuum generation. The webinar is hosted by the Fiber Modelling and Fabrication Technical Group of the Optical Society of America (OSA), and you can register for the event by following this link:  Webinar link

50-year Celebration of the Birth of Supercontinuum at Photonics West 2020

It was a great honor for NORBLIS to be part of the 50-year celebration of the discovery of Supercontinuum at Photonics West 2020. The anniversary was marked with several talks by prominent names in the field, including its first observer Prof. Robert Alfano, and of course no birthday is complete without a birtday cake (see photo below). From NORBLIS it was Christian Petersen who gave a talk about using the NORBLIS mid-infrared supercontinuum laser in combination with optical coherence tomography for non-destructive testing of paints and coatings.

NORBLIS invited talk at Photonics West 2020 industrial session

We are very happy to announce that NORBLIS has been invited to give a talk in the session "Industrial Supercontinuum Fiber Lasers" during Photonics West 2020. The session is part of the "Optical Biopsy XVIII: Toward Real-Time Spectroscopic Imaging and Diagnosis" conference-track, which has several sessions devoted to supercontinuum generation, including a tribute to the 50th anniversary of Supercontinuum. We look forward to share our recent progress within supercontinuum-based optical coherence tomography for non-destructive testing, and hope to see you there!

New extended bandwidth supercontinuum source reaching 10 μm

We would like to share our latest development in extending the coverage of mid-IR supercontinuum sources into the molecular fingerprint region. The new source that covers from 1.5-10 μm will enable new applications within spectroscopy and imaging, such as trace gas detection and non-destructive testing of industrial coatings and components.

Photonics West 2019: The NORBLIS Mid-IR Supercontinuum laser and Mid-IR OCT system was officially launched

With us from Denmark we brought an example of our first prototype Mid-IR Supercontinuum laser emitting 100 mW from 1.5-8 μm wavelength, which attracted a lot of attention. So much that we ran out of flyers and had to go to a copying-shop to get more.

There was also some interest in the Mid-IR OCT system, and since this is the first system of its kind there were many questions regarding what the system could do compared to visible and near-IR systems, which several companies were showcasing at the exhibition.

This was our first ever exhibit at a major international conference, and it is safe to say that it was a great success and a fantastic experience.

NORBLIS 4 μm mid-IR OCT system published in Nature journal Light: Science & Applications

We are happy to announce that our 4 μm mid-IR OCT system was published in the Nature journal Light: Science & Applications with the title "Real-time high-resolution mid-infrared optical coherence tomography".

The article is open access and is accessed through this link: Link to the article

In the paper we demonstrate improved imaging compared to near-IR systems in ceramic structures, scattering thin films, and a standard credit card composed of laminates, resins, wires, and the silicon microprocessor. In the future we will focus on finding more applications where mid-IR OCT has an advantage over existing systems.

World-first 4 μm mid-IR OCT system presented at High Tech Summit 2018

We were very excited to display our prototype mid-IR OCT scanning system for the first time to the public and to talk about the many applications of NORBLIS broadband lasers with the crowd. Many people passed by our booth to check out the system and to ask what our technology could do. There was also a big interest in broadband mid-IR laser spectroscopy and real-time process monitoring from industry, so we are confident that there is a real need for our solutions.
