  • Compatible with most SOA (Semiconductor-Optical-Amplifier) on the market
  • User Set Pulse Widths from 0.5 Nanosecond to CW
  • Modulation bandwidth extending into the GHz Range
  • Ideal to reach high extinction ratio (up to 70 dB in some configurations)
  • 0 to 1.5 Amps Output Current
  • Integrated Pre-Configured Butterfly Mounting Socket
  • Integrated TEC Temperature Controller
  • Built-In Pulse Generator and Remote Triggering
  • USB Interface, Includes Programming Tools Software Suite, DLL Library and GUI
  • Manufactured by Alphanov, Sold Worldwide on Laser Lab Source

Product Overview:

This SOA Pulsed Driver makes your SOA (semiconductor-Optical-Amplifier) a high speed, high dynamic range fiber modulator. It is a relavant alternative to AOM or EOM . The optimal peformances are reached when a CW laser diode signal is applied to the SOA, and the bias current driving the SOA is switched ON/OFF in a pulsed mode at very high speed (more than 1 GHz). This modulated signal can also be customized and shaped to accommodate many emerging applications.
