Nov 2005Santec Corp.Request Info
KOMAKI, Japan, Nov. 2 -- Santec Corp., a manufacturer of tunable lasers and test instruments for the fiber optics industry, has released a tunable laser with an extended wavelength range of up to 1680 nm. Based on Santec's external cavity design, the company says this new product extends the range of Santec's popular TSL-210V series of tunable lasers. According to Santec, in addition to fiber optic telecommunications, the laser is particularly suitable for applications such as gas sensing and material characterization.
Santec's current tunable laser series covers the wavelength range 1260 to 1630 nm, and the company says recent advances in semiconductor laser diode technology have enabled this long wavelength range to be realized. Tuning range for the TSL-210V is 1580 to 1680 nm with an output power of up to 10 mW.
The laser is a single-channel, benchtop-type model. It offers continuous mode-hop-free tuning over the entire wavelength range and has full GPIB (general purpose interface bus) interface. For gas sensing applications, the laser can be supplied with an additional function to enable wavelength modulation at up to 20 kHz. A rapid wavelength scan across multiple gas lines can also be achieved.
