HIGH-POWER 980-NM LASERS FOR UNDERSEA APPLICATIONS
The SDL-6540 is a high-power 980-nm pump laser designed for the next generation of "Terabit per second" undersea links by offering twice the output power of current 980-nm pumps. The elimination of the problem of "kink" in the SDL-6540 will allow the development of a new class of undersea pump modules in the 200- to 240-mW range. The SDL-6540 has recently completed 3000 h of lifetest.
