Eblana Photonics has its origins in advanced research programs in photonics involving Ireland's leading Universities and Research Centres including Trinity College Dublin and the National Microelectronics Research Centre (now Tyndall National Institute). The company was founded in 2001 aiming at commercialising a scalable laser manufacturing technology which had the capacity to drive down the cost of high performance, single wavelength lasers for diverse mass market applications.
Eblana has solid links with Trinity College Dublin, Dublin City University, Tyndall National Institute and other global centres of expertise in laser physics and semiconductor device fabrication. In addition, the company has a pivotal role as lead supplier of laser components to EU sponsored research projects, being thus at the forefront of technological developments in photonic systems for advanced communications and other sectors.
AMS Technologies offers Eblana’s broad range of specialty laser diodes for gas sensing applications with wavelengths between 657 and 2350 nm. Discrete-Mode (DM) technology, at the heart of the gas sensing single-mode lasers, achieves excellent SMSR and narrow linewidth (<2MHz). Eblana’s DM lasers feature mode-hop free tuning over a minimum of 2, thus offering the excellent tuning characteristics required by laser-based gas sensing applications.
