NeoPhotonics Increases Capacity
Photonic integrated circuit manufacturer NeoPhotonics Corp. of San Jose, Calif., is doubling its capacity for producing narrow-linewidth tunable lasers. Offered in an Optical Internetworking Forum Multi Source Agreement standard Integrable Tunable Laser Assembly (ITLA), the devices feature the low noise and narrow linewidths required for 40- and 100-Gb/s coherent applications. The products are optimized with up to 35-mW launch power in the C-band and 20 mW in the L-band. This is enabled by NeoPhotonics’ phase-shifted distributed feedback laser chip and packaging technology, while the ITLA assembly also includes an integrated wavelength locker and industry-standard electrical and firmware interfaces.
