OSI Laser Diode Introduces 1625nm Pulsed Laser Diode Module
OSI Laser Diode, a laser diode specialist based in New Jersey, has introduced the SCW 1632-350R, a high-power, pulsed laser diode module for optical testing applications.
The 1625nm, 350mW module will be exhibited at the OFC Technical Exposition, March 24 - 26, 2015, Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, California.
Housed in a 14-pin butterfly package, the new ridge waveguide (RWG) Fabry-Perot (FP) laser diode is optically coupled to a single-mode fibre pigtail and includes a thermoelectric cooler (TEC) and an electrically-isolated temperature sensing thermistor.
It features optical power of 350mW (typically) making it suitable for applications where high peak pulsed optical power is required. The device is specifically designed for use in optical spectrum analysers and optical time domain reflectometers (OTDRs). The higher power gives the OTDR manufacturer greater dynamic range capability.
It joins the family of high-power pulsed laser diode modules, including the previously introduced SCW 1532-500R that operates at 1550 nm and features higher than 500mW optical power.
