Product Overview:

1180nm, 30mW Butterfly DFB Diode Laser

The distributed feedback (DFB) laser was designed for use in scientific and industrial applications. The laser is assembled into a 14-pin butterfly package with an optical isolator, a monitor PD, and a thermo-electric cooler. This device has a center wavelength output at 1180nm and delivers 30mW from Ex-fiber.

The laser is also available at 1120nm center wavelength; inquire about part number The QLD1161-2030.

- Single longitudinal mode operation at 1180nm
- Fiber-pigtailed 14-pin butterfly package with a TEC
- Optical isolator integration
- Polarization maintaining fiber integration
- Two types of pigtailed fiber diameter are available: 900μm or 250μm

Proper Handling and Operation of Diode Lasers

Diode lasers are highly susceptible to damage from ESD and from temperatures exceeding their specified safe operating range. The user is advised to use care and proper ESD safety practices when handling them to avoid damage to the laser. A properly rated low noise current source, a low thermal resistance mount and a temperature controller should be used for optimal device performance and reliability.
