CIP releases monolithically integrated RSOA-EAM for WDM/DWDM networks

SEPTEMBER 21, 2009 -- Photonics development company CIP Technologies has released the R-SOA-EAM-1550 at ECOC 2009 conference in Vienna, Austria.

The device monolithically integrates a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) with a reflective electroabsorption modulator (EAM) to combine high optical gain with high-speed modulation capability. The R-SOA-EAM-1550 offers high output power, low power consumption, and low sensitivity to input polarization, making it suitable for DWDM transmission at speeds of 10 Gbps over fiber-optic links up to 80 km. The device is "colorless," and a single device may be used across the entire C-band.

"Using colorless modulators with remote DWDM light sources is becoming a viable alternative to expensive tunable lasers in WDM-PON and metro applications," says David Smith, chief technology officer of CIP Technologies. "This level of device performance represents a breakthrough that will simplify and cost-reduce future deployments."

The R-SOA-EAM-1550 also incorporates standardized design features to make it compatible with the CIP HyBoard photonic integration platform. "This new device is an important addition to the tool kit of optical devices that will be integrated in the future," claims Smith.

More details of the product will be available at the CIP Booth #700 at ECOC. Optical systems manager Alistair Poustie will present a related paper on Sept. 23, 2009.
