HI-Q® LASERS

HI-Q® Laser houses a proprietary driver/controller and the OEwaves laser source which is based on a high quality factor (Q) Whispering Gallery Mode (WGM) micro-resonator. The laser is scalable to a variety of wavelengths in 370 – 4500nm.

 

The unique technology of the OEwaves HI-Q® laser leverages the self-injection locking capability of a suitable commercially available laser diode via resonant optical feedback from a high-Q WGM micro-resonator. Its monolithically integrated approach along with micro-scale mass and volume make the laser virtually insensitive to environmental vibrations.
