TeraXion Inc. has introduced compact versions of its distributed-feedback PS-LM and narrow-linewidth PS-NLL PureSpectrum specialized semiconductor laser modules. The company says that the new package is more than six times smaller and five times lighter and that it consumes two times less power than the original PS-NLL version. Developed for integration into OEM instrumentation, it measures 20 x 64 x 90 mm and operates over a temperature range from —5 to 55 °C. Both lasers offer a side mode suppression ratio of >30 dB, a polarization extinction ratio of >17 dB and frequency modulation amplitude of ±2.5 GHz. Applications include lidar and remote sensing, coherent sensors in oil and gas operation, perimeter and submarine detection for security, test and measurement, and coherent optical time-domain reflectometry.
