OEwaves Introduces 2 Micron Ultra-Narrow Linewidth Laser Module
Company to offer complete laser module with sub-kHz Lorentzian linewidth in a compact package operating at 2000 nm
Pasadena, California (February 3, 2013) OEwaves, Inc., a leader in innovative microwave photonic products and solutions, today announced the successful development and introduction of its 2 Micron Ultra-Narrow Linewidth Laser Module with less than a kHz Lorentzian linewidth in a compact package. The new product extends its line of ultra-narrow linewidth lasers operating in the C-band. The 2 Micron Ultra-Narrow Linewidth Laser Module is based on the self-injection locking of a semiconductor laser to OEwaves’ proprietary Whispering Gallery Mode (WGM) microresonator. The new module also houses a low noise laser driver, TEC drivers, and controller with proprietary algorithm for enhanced performance and stability, all in a small form factor. A built in USB interface enables user-friendly command and control as well as an RS-232 option. The laser module exhibits long term frequency stability, ultra-low frequency noise, and wide thermal tunability. The 2 Micron Ultra-Narrow Linewidth Laser Module was developed to meet the growing demands of the commercial, defense, and R&D markets for narrow linewidth, single-mode CW sources for a variety of gas sensing, coherent-LIDAR, frequency-conversion, and test and measurement applications. Available in March, 2014 and can be customized to any single wavelength within 1900-2100 nm range.
