SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 28, 2010 — The Newport Corp. brand, New Focus, has released a series of semiconductor tapered amplifiers for high-power tunable and fixed-wavelength applications.
Designed to accept many fiber-coupled seed sources, the VAMP series provides easy alignment and helps protect the chip from unintential misalignment. Its high performance design includes output isolation, over-current protection and input seed monitoring in every amplifier for stable, robust operation.
It delivers in excess of 1 W of tunable signal frequency radiation when seeded with the brand’s Vortex II and Velocity precision tunable lasers. Additionally, it can operate with homemade seed sources.
Its special power-locking loop reduces the amplitudes noise and drift. The power output remains stable and quiet over the entire operating range, resulting in higher quality data over shorter periods of time.
With extremely high ASE rejection to improve the signal-to-noise ratio, it is ideal for atomic cooling, spectroscopy and for Bose-Einstein condensates.
