Handheld Diode Laser Sources, Single or Double Wavelength; 635 to 1625 nm; Output Power 0.02 to 1 mW; Case 76 x 127 x 25 mm; Linewidth 1.5, 30, 50 nm typ.
OZ Optics’ FOSS series of single or dual wavelength fiber optic laser diode sources is available in a variety of wavelengths. These receptacle-style sources are offered with a wide range of receptacles, while the pigtail-style sources offer the choice of polarization maintaining (PM), single mode (SM) or multi mode (MM) fiber output. Each source has a low battery indicator on the front panel.
FOSS standard sources provide continuous waveform output but can also be pulse modulated internally at 270 Hz, 1 kHz and 2 kHz. As an option, OZ Optics can include a blocking-style optical attenuator to adjust the output power for the FOSS-01 and FOSS-11 models. This method of power control does not affect the spectral properties of the laser diode output. The FOSS-2N allows the user to select one of four preset power levels via the keypad.
The FOSS-22 dual wavelength variants consist of two sources in a single, lightweight package and are ideal for multimode ﬁber testing. Either one of the two outputs can be activated from the front panel. The user interface is controlled by a microprocessor and the optical outputs are thermally stabilized. An LED display and simple keys on the front panel provide easy operation. The front panel keys are used to select on, off, modulation, and wavelength. The LED source allows the user to select one of four preset power levels via the keypad.
In general, OZ Optics uses polarization maintaining fibers based on the PANDA fiber structure when building polarization maintaining components and patch cords. However OZ Optics can construct devices using other PM fiber structures. OZ Optics does carry some alternative fiber types in stock, so please contact AMS Technologies for availability. If necessary, OZ Optics is also willing to use customer supplied fibers to build devices.
OZ Optics recommends angled connectors for improved stability. For 1300 nm and 1550 nm wavelengths, an isolator can be added for improved stability. OZ Optics also manufactures the HIFOSS series of highly stable laser diode sources, which includes a temperature controller and an isolator.
