Spectra-Physics introduces multimode telecommunications pump lasers

Sept. 14, 2001--Spectra-Physics has introduced a new series of multimode, semiconductor pump lasers that deliver up to 2.5 W of power, twice the amount typically available.

Spectra-Physics has introduced a new series of multimode, semiconductor pump lasers that deliver up to 2.5 W of power, twice the amount typically available. These products are available at 915 nm, for pumping Raman fiber lasers, and at 975 nm, for co-doped EDFA pumping.

This new series of lasers is offered in a wide variety of standard and custom configurations, to simplify their integration. Standard packages include chips on sub-mount and lensed chips on sub-mount, as well as hermetically sealed, fiber coupled, industry standard, 14-pin butterfly packages. Fiber coupled versions utilize a 105 µm core, 0.15 NA fiber, and deliver 2 W of output; both thermoelectrically cooled and uncooled versions are available. Custom packages can be readily optimized to meet the needs of specific applications.

These high-power, Telcordia-quality pump lasers are available from stock, and can be scheduled for volume delivery.
