For Laser Diode Testing
BOZEMAN, Mont., Dec. 29 -- ILX Lightwave has added high-power laser diode current sources to its portfolio of precision laser diode instrumentation products. The LDX-3600 series high-power laser diode current sources are high-performance drivers designed for controlling and testing high-power laser diodes.

The series offers currents from 10 to 120 amps in CW and QCW modes. They feature high setpoint accuracy, low output noise and four-wire voltage measurement with an IEEE488/GPIB interface. A unique power display mode allows laser diode power to be set based on slope efficiency and threshold current parameters. External output power monitoring is supported through an independent photodiode measurement circuit.

Multiple laser diode protection features include adjustable voltage and current limits, output shorting relays and a high level of immunity to operating and power line transients. In addition, all 3600 series drivers accept a thermistor input for temperature monitoring with programmable temperature limits for additional laser diode protection. Dual independent interlocks are provided for further laser and operator protection.

The LDX-3600 series intuitive front panel enables quick and easy operation without confusing multilevel menus. Dual displays allow simultaneous monitoring of laser current, voltage or power, and temperature. Laser diode current, voltage and temperature limits and pulse mode parameters, such as pulse width and duty cycle, can be quickly and easily set through front panel controls.

GLOSSARY
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
