SAN JOSE, Calif. — A microintegrated tunable laser assembly (micro-ITLA) from Avago Technologies Ltd. is designed for use in coherent dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM) systems.
The AFCU-UITLAXX is based on the company’s external cavity laser (ECL) technology and indium phosphide (InP) and silica-on-silicon chip technology and packaging platform. It delivers a narrow linewidth, low phase noise and superior frequency accuracy, improving system performance by reducing signal-to-noise penalties.
It features a high optical output power, off-grid tuning capability, a gridless channel plan, and in-operation wavelength and power adjustment capability suitable for applications in 100G PM-QPSK and 200G 16-QAM modulation formats.
