Eblana ships single-wavelength laser diodes for ultra-narrow lines

SEPTEMBER 13, 2007 — Eblana Photonics Ltd. shipped the first batch of its single-wavelength laser diodes for analog and other ultra-narrow linewidth and low phase noise applications. The product series exhibits RIN down to -160 dB/Hz and emission linewidths below 100 kHz at emitted powers as low as 500 μW.

SEPTEMBER 13, 2007 — Eblana Photonics Ltd. (Dublin, Ireland) shipped the first batch of its single-wavelength laser diodes for analog and other ultra-narrow linewidth and low phase noise applications. The product series exhibits RIN down to -160 dB/Hz and emission linewidths below 100 kHz at emitted powers as low as 500 μW.

The products are designed to lower costs in high-performance optical module manufacture, says James O'Gorman, CEO Eblana. Initial users have shown positive responses, the company reports, for transceivers and transponders in applications such as long reach (LR)/very long reach (VR) spans in metro systems and long haul (LH) and ultra long haul (ULH) systems. The lasers offer a commercial alternative to WDM-based access systems, and emit at λ = 1310 nm and 1550 nm.
