A novel integration approach using a supercontinuum light illumination generated by launching femto second laser pulses into a highly nonlinear photonic crystal fiber is presented. The main advantages of using the presented technique for accurate 3D data fusion are: (1) a large depth of field; (2) very low aberration (even for a large field of view); and (3) no coherent noise (a major problem for the laser system). Matched points can be located in the fused partial topological maps at an accuracy of one hundredth of the pixel size.
