Yenista Optics has released a tunable laser in the 1310-nm wavelength
region. The Tunics T100R model uses a new optical cavity design to provide optical
power of 6 dBm with a low-noise >80 dB/0.1-nm signal-to-spontaneous-emission
ratio. Patented self-filtered external cavity laser technology enables the combination
of low noise and high power. The O-band laser operates from 1270 to 1340 nm and
is suitable for characterizing narrow-bandwidth filters and for functioning as a
light source for testing high-speed transmission systems. Engineers developing and
testing components for the latest 40- and 100-Gigabit Ethernet and fiber-to-the-home/passive
optical networks benefit from the performance of this laser, according to the company.
Proprietary Optim-Y technology delivers high wavelength accuracy and mode-hop-free
operation with no amplified spontaneous emission. The laser operates in both sweeping
and step-by-step modes.
