Superior narrow linewidth lasers
Laser Components offers a highly reliable laser source supplied either as a butterfly package (PLANEX) which consists of a gain chip and a planar lightwave circuit (PLC) that includes a Bragg grating or as an OEM version (ORION).
Its lasers provide distinct advantages with performance of high stability, reliability, and a small footprint, meeting highly demanding environmental applications such as O&G, infrastructure monitoring, LiDAR, military, security, and other optical sensing applications.
It supplies these lasers with an extremely narrow linewidth down to <1kHz with ultra-low noise, unparalleled wavelength stability and low power dissipation. Wavelengths available are 1550nm C-band (ITU channels or custom) and 1064nm with an output power of 10mW or 20mW with SMF or PMF pigtail options.
The ORION package (OEM version) was designed with the customer’s needs in mind: highly integrated, small form factor and a self-contained module. This optical solution is designed for reducing the development cycle time and allowing for simple integration into advanced fibre optic sensing systems. External monitoring and control can be achieved via SPI, RS-232 or RS-485 standard interfaces.
These features are ideal for the applications mentioned above where absolute accuracy, lifetime reliability over demanding field conditions, and high resolution are vital.
