Eblana’s EP series of discrete mode (DM) laser diodes utilize the inherent low linewidth performance of the DM platform in comparison to typical DFB lasers, ideal for trace gas sensing and environmental monitoring in the near-infrared (NIR) and mid-infrared (NIR, MIR) wavelength domain.
EP series laser diodes are available in a variety of industry standard and custom package types, as well as with wavelengths ranging from 657 to 2350 nm, suitable for sensing a broad range of chemical elements and substances:
Eblana can also realize DM laser diodes for any custom wavelength requirements with a proven track record of success – please contact the AMS Technologies’ laser diode experts who are committed to ensuring that our customers realize the perfect gas sensing solution to meet their technical and commercial needs – every time.
Laser-based gas sensing applications require excellent tuning characteristics. Eblana’s discrete mode lasers feature mode-hop free tuning over a minimum of 2 nm. Utilizing a standard Fabry-Perot ridge waveguide process to ensure high reliability and consistency, Eblana’s discrete mode (DM) technology achieves excellent side mode suppression ratio (SMSR) and a narrow linewidth below 2 MHz.
Wavelength-selective features are etched using surface-level lithography to create single mode (SM) lasers, and a multiple quantum-well epitaxial structure is grown by MOCVD or MBE. Compared with traditional DFB approaches, Eblana’s discrete mode technology is regrowth-free and the wavelength selection material-agnostic.
