When an OEwaves customer referred to our lasers as having “Ridiculously Narrow Linewidth”, we took that as an expression of their amazement at how a semiconductor laser in a small, cellphone sized pac
The Winking Linewidth
The linewidth of the laser does not change…in theory at least. In high performance lasers, such as OEwaves’ OE4030, the linewidth is stabilized by self-injection locking to a microresonator, so to cha
Are you being held back by your Laser?
Lasers come in all sizes and performance grades. But the choice of the laser determines the ultimate system performance. Consider, for example, the use of a semiconductor laser in optical communicati
