Redfern Integrated Optics (RIO)Request Info
 
Redfern Integrated Optics Inc. has announced that its Planex and Orion laser module platforms are available with higher minimum output power, up to 20 mW, without the need for an external optical amplifier. The higher output power adds to the lasers’ specifications in linewidth, phase noise, relative intensity noise and Telcordia reliability. The lasers operate in the C-band from 1530 to 1565 nm and are narrowly tunable. The higher output power, low noise and ultranarrow linewidth of <3 kHz make these semiconductor optical solutions suitable for use in applications where absolute accuracy, lifetime reliability over demanding field conditions, and high resolution are vital, such as remote sensing, distributed temperature, strain, acoustic fiber optic monitoring, high-resolution spectroscopy and lidar.

GLOSSARY
lidar
An acronym of light detection and ranging, describing systems that use a light beam in place of conventional microwave beams for atmospheric monitoring, tracking and detection functions. Ladar, an acronym of laser detection and ranging, uses laser light for detection of speed, altitude, direction and range; it is often called laser radar.
linewidth
1. The range of frequencies or wavelengths over which radiations are absorbed or emitted in a transition between a specific pair of atomic energy levels. The full width is determined between half-power points of the line. 2. In a laser, the range of frequencies over which most of the beam energy is distributed.
metrology
The science of measurement, particularly of lengths and angles.
remote sensing
Technique that utilizes electromagnetic energy to detect and quantify information about an object that is not in contact with the sensing apparatus.
strain
In optics, the mechanical tension, compression or shear in optical glass due to internal stress caused by improper cooling or annealing during manufacture of the glass or the subsequent working of molded parts.
