As the first in a line of erbium micro fiber lasers, the compact SMPF-2030 from NP Photonics produces fixed wavelengths with 30-mW output power without the need for an external booster. It features a linewidth of less than 10 kHz and a side-mode suppression ratio of more than 50 dB, making it suitable for atmospheric and remote sensing, spectroscopy, lidar, undersea optical telecommunications and test and measurement applications. The laser's relative intensity noise is less than -140 dB/Hz at 2 MHz, and it is available at ITU 50 GHz for the C-band, with a wavelength accuracy of ±500 MHz. The device includes embedded microprocessor control and a 1-m-long polarization-maintaining fiber pigtail connector.
