Discovery Semiconductors is pleased to introduce a 2.2µm balanced receiver with adjustable gain and bandwidth up to 18 GHz.
This new device, with longer wavelength response of 1.2µm through 2.2µm, fits with advances in real-time scopes and 2.05µm ring and disk lasers.
Potential applications for Discovery’s DSC-R212 include: laser development, gas detection, lidar, fast time resolved spectroscopy, non-linear frequency conversion, multi-octave spanning laser frequency combs, OFDM, laser photo medicine and photo surgery.
Laser surgery is aided by a C=O absorption at 2.05µm and the ability to deliver the light through the fibre.
