GENEVA, June 16, 2006 -- id Quantique, a manufacturer of visible and infrared spectrum photon
counters and short-pulse laser sources primarily for network security
and optical instrumentation, has introduced its latest product to meet
the needs of researchers: the id300 short-pulse laser source.
id Quantique id300 has been designed to meet the specific requirements
of researchers who need to generate short laser pulses at wavelengths
of 780 nm, 850 nm, 1310 nm or 1550 nm and is ideally suited to work in
combination with id Quantique's single-photon detection and counting
modules id200 at telecom wavelengths, the company said. The laser
source was unveiled this month at Optatek in Frankfurt, Germany.
laser source for 850 nm is based on a VCSEL (vertical-cavity
surface-emitting laser) or on a Fabry-Perot laser diode (for 780 nm,
1310 nm or 1550 nm), and is triggered externally via a trigger input to
produce sub-nanosecond laser pulses with a repetition rate ranging from
DC to 500 MHz.
In addition to the various wavelengths, the
id300 is also available with different trigger input signals. It has a
pulse duration of 300 ps, a peak power of 1 mW and a spectral width
(full width half maximum) of typically 7 nm. As an option, the id300 is
available with a polarization-maintaining fiber.
2002, the id200 was the first single-photon detector on the market, the
company said. The id200 is based on a InGaAs diode and has a quantum
efficiency of up to 10 percent with a very low dark count rate. The
wavelength range is 900 to 1700 nm. The id200 is a complete system with
internal counter, clock output, adjustable gate duration, adjustable
dead time and adjustable delay, making it ideally suited to work with
the id300-1310 and id300-1550 short-pulse laser source, the company
