Product Overview:

Pre-Configured 1550nm Source Fine Tuned for Clean Ultra-Short Pulse Performance:

These turn-key pulsed and CW 1550nm diode laser source & control modules offer the user a pre-configured, calibrated solution for nanosecond level fast pulsing applications. These modules deliver pulse widths as narrow as 1 to 3 nanoseconds. The butterfly packaged laser diode has been impedance matched to the pulse current PCB in the mounting socket to ensure clean pulse performance with almost no ring or overshoot. To achieve the shortest possible pulses, the customer has the option to request that the butterfly package be soldered into the mounting socket. These modules are designed primarily for pulsed fiber laser, direct frequency conversion and spectroscopy applications which require a narrow spectral bandwidth and high peak power.

Pulsed 1550nm DFB Laser Diode Control Electronics & Butterfly Package Mount Module:

The control electronics and mounting module for these laser diodes delivers high stability current pulses which can be generated internally by an on-board pulse generator or on demand from an external TTL signal. The external trigger source can be used to trigger the pulse parameters which are preset in the control module. These control modules offer multiple mechanical, thermal and electronic protection features for the laser source. They ensure that your laser diode is protected and operated safely. The on-board TEC controller incorporates a fast feedback PID control loop to provide high temperature set-point stability. A user-set temperature limit keeps the source from thermal damage. Additionally, multiple bias current / voltage protection features are designed to keep the source safe from ESD, power outages and reverse voltage. A user controlled current limit clamps the current in both Pulsed and CW mode.

USB and Control Software:

The user can set and monitor all of the control parameters of the 1550nm DFB source laser using the USB input and the supplied GUI software. These units ship with the USB cable to connect your PC to the connector on the side panel. A simple to use, single page graphical user interface allows you to control all of the pulse or CW parameters as well as set current and temperature limits. Other features of these control modules include a daisy chain output, sync output, alarm monitor and back facet monitor output to monitor the laser power.
