1310nm DFB Single Mode / Single Frequency Laser Diode, 14.5mW
Eblana's DFB laser is built using discrete-mode (DM) technology, delivering a cost-effective laser diode with mode-hop free tuneability, excellent SMSR, and narrow linewidth. Eblana Photonics EP1310-DM-B laser diode series is available at a range of wavelengths from 1300 - 1320 nm.
1310nm for High Performance Communications Applications
Eblana's 1310 nm DM Laser delivers unrivalled 10 Gbps performance at affordable pricing compared to conventional DFB technology. Its strained quantum well InAlGaAs composition provides for reliable, mode-hop free, uncooled operation over a wide operating temperature range. These single longitudinal mode lasers are designed specifically for use in communications and sensing applications, including FTTX, PON, and datacomms systems: 10 GbE (Gigabit Ethernet); SDH STM-64, SONET OC-192, 10G FC fiber channel.
Available Preconfigured Driver Maximizes Cost Effectiveness
Eblana's proprietary DX-1 incorporates the butterfly laser module with an integrated current driver and TEC controller. Designed for ease of operation, it is the ideal platform for high stability gas detection or remote sensing. The driver module is compact, at 72.5 mm x 50 mm x 28 mm, to fit within your system hardware and simplifies your design work considerably.
Features of the DX-1 Laser Diode Driver
- Integrated driver and TEC controller
- PM/SMF coupled with FC/APC
- Built-in optical isolator
- Powered by +5 V DC source
Important Notes on Operating Laser Diodes:
Electrical Operation: Operating a laser diode above the maximum ratings shown on the data sheet even for very short periods of time can damage the laser diode or reduce its lifetime. They should be electrically biased with a "laser diode driver" class current supply with low electrical noise and protection against voltage and current surges. Laser diodes are very sensitive to electrostatic discharge (ESD). Proper ESD precautions must be taken.
Mounting and Temperature Control: In order to maintain the lifetime of a laser diode, proper heat management is essential. Due to the design of the laser diode, heat is typically dissipated only through the base plate of the diode‘s package. A proper heat conducting interconnection between the diodes base plate and the heat sink must be maintained. Some devices require the use of a thermo-electric temperature controller (TEC controller) to remove the heat from the laser and stabilize the temperature.
