Full tunability across C band or L band

Ideal for telecommunications applications; full coverage of DWDM channels.

Smarter calibration for enhanced power uniformity

Minimize inter-channel power variance with enhanced power uniformity between channels.

0.01pm tuning resolution

Tune to anywhere within C or L band with a high 0.01pm tuning resolution.

Narrow 100kHz linewidth, up to 16.5 dBm of power

High stability 100kHz linewidth makes it an ideal candidate for some of the most demanding applications, such as coherently modulated high-speed communications.

Polarization maintaining output

The slow axis of polarization is aligned with the output connector key as per industry standards. The user may choose to use polarization maintaining (PM) fiber or standard singlemode fiber (SMF).

Powerful software controls

The Laser 1000 Series is fully programmable via industry standard SCPI protocols and drivers are available for Python and LabVIEW. It also comes with an easy-to-use GUI that can be used on any device with a modern web browser.

USB or Ethernet operation

Connect via USB or Ethernet for simple setup and operation.

Excellent measurement correlation with our optical PXI modules

Shared product architecture lets you validate your system and test requirements in the lab with the benchtop version, and scale up to high-volume automated production testing with the Laser 1000 Series PXIe module.

Optional Whisper Mode

The Laser 1000 Series comes with optional whisper mode. This feature enables the user to temporarily disable the laser control frequency dither, which is useful for applications that require the narrowest linewidth.

All of our tunable lasers adhere to the OIF standard Micro Integrable Tunable Laser Assemblies (μITLA) Implementation Agreement and utilise the standard dithering method for frequency stability.
