Lumics introduces pump module
August 8, 2002--Lumics, manufacturer of pump laser modules and laser chips, has announced a new low profile 980-nm pump laser module in a 14-pin butterfly package with thermo electric cooler (TEC) for Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier (EDFA) applications.
Lumics, manufacturer of pump laser modules and laser chips, has announced a new low profile 980-nm pump laser module in a 14-pin butterfly package with thermo electric cooler (TEC) for Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier (EDFA) applications.
The undersized package design has a standard footprint of 30 x 15.2mm and meets lower height requirements of 6.8 mm for smaller optical amplifier designs, say company representatives. The device offers approximately 25% lower height dimensions compared to most of the standard modules in the market. The new module also features a proven high-precision alignment process and is competitively priced for the emerging optical amplifier market.
The module is assembled with a standard Flexcore 1060 fiber. Customer specific fibers types, including polarization-maintaining fibers, are available. Designed primarily for use in long haul and metro networks, it conforms to Telcordia GR-468-CORE.
The LU980M251001 product is available from Q3 of 2002. Lumics uses a patent-pending breakthrough in laser passivation technology, which offers very high optical output power, contends the company. The current generation of modules ranges from 80- to 250-mW nominal output power with a fiber bragg grating (FBG) for wavelength
"We believe we are well positioned in this downturn market," asserts George Schaefer, director of sales and marketing at Lumics. "Our expertise is in the 980-nm and 1480-nm chip design. For volume manufacturing of the pump lasers modules, we cooperate with strong partners that can offer the latest advances in packaging technology."
