Photonic Products has introduced its latest range of high performance fibre pigtailed and receptacle packaged laser diodes suitable for OEM applications. Potential applications include scientific equipment, and optical instruments requiring a high quality laser diode light source.
The fibre pigtailed laser packages are available in wavelengths from 635nm to telecommunications wavelengths of 1,310-1,550nm and fibre output powers from 0.8-15mW. They are typically supplied with a 1m, 9/125µ fibre. Coupling to single-mode 4/125µ fibre is available on request for wavelengths of 635-850nm, and a range of termination options is available. The telecommunications wavelength pigtailed lasers offer un-cooled operation at -40-85°C (233-353K).
The receptacle packaged laser diodes, with wavelengths from 635nm to telecomms wavelengths of 1,310-1,550nm, and optical output powers of 0.7-60mW, are packaged in either SMA, FC, ST or SC receptacles or with a universal adaptor that will accept FC, ST, SC and most other 2.5mm diameter ferrule connectors for user-supplied fibre coupling, allowing for singlemode or multimode fibres to be used without additional power loss.
Both fibre pigtailed and receptacle packaged laser diodes have a built-in monitor photodiode to regulate the light output and increase stability, are hermetically sealed and have a standard 3-pin or 4-pin connection for compatibility with common drivers.
