1527-1610 nm; Output Power 13-27 dBm; Termination Receptacle Style, FC/PC, FC/APC, ST, SC, SCA, LC, MU; C, C+L Band; Spectrum Flatness 1.0-2.0 dB

OZ Optics’ ASE (Amplified Spontaneous Emission) broadband low coherence light sources are ideal instruments for optical component spectral measurement and system compliance testing in manufacturing and R&D environments. The new generation of ASE sources have no high-frequency ripples, which makes them very useful for sensor interrogation applications.

ASE broadband light sources are available to cover the C-band, L-band, or both the C & L bands together. These are available with either a flattened spectral output for demanding applications, or a non-flattened response for less demanding or cost-sensitive applications. A range of output powers are available.

The output light is accessed via a female fiber connector receptacle on the front panel. A variety of standard connector types are available. Custom connectors can also be accommodated.

ASE broadband light sources are available in bench-top, rackmount or OEM module form factors. The basic version of the source features a built-in microprocessor for applications that require output power adjustment. RS-232 and USB interfaces are included, with the addition of a GPIB interface offered as an option.
