Modulight releases high-power single-mode lasers at 1310-1650nm for OTDR and other metrology applications

Tampere, Finland & San Jose, CA, Sep 16th 2010 – Modulight announced today a set of high-power single lateral mode lasers ideal for optical time-domain reflectometer (OTDR) and other metrology applications. The lasers produce up to 300mW pulsed optical power and cover all conventional wavelengths between 1310 nm and 1650 nm. The products are offered in different formats ranging from laser chips to TO-cans and coaxial PCB mountable fiber pigtailed modules. On request, products can be also integrated into a PCB mountable dual or triple emitter combiner housing with single-fiber output.

Currently the following wavelengths and pulse powers (10 µs at 1 kHz) are offered as standard products:

“We are excited to launch this high-power single-mode product group that complements nicely our offering in the Test and measurement market. In fact, we started to build up this product group already years back when our business was mainly involved in communications market. Since then we have entered strongly to medical, defense and industrial markets using typically multimode high-power lasers, However, these high-power single-mode lasers have been one of our specialties over the years. Coming up with a complete set of laser products for all key wavelengths supporting OTDR and other similar applications is a direct result on increased business activity in this domain. Based on in-coming interest towards our products, it seems that the Test and measurement market segment is gearing up in all our main markets, Europe, US, and Asia, and we are committed to help our customers to be competitive in that market place.”, comments Dr. Petteri Uusimaa, President & CEO of Modulight.
