Handheld Diode Laser Source; 1550 nm; Wavelength Tuning Range ±2 nm ; Wavelength Accuracy ±0.004 nm; Output Power 1 mW; Dimensions 60x90x190 mm

The TL-100 intelligent tunable laser diode source from OZ Optics is a compact optical source providing a user-controllable wavelength and output power level. Using a unique temperature compensation system, the source provides excellent stability in both wavelength and power.

Unlike many sources that are accurate at only the calibration temperature, OZ Optics' TL-100 tunable laser is designed to maintain high accuracy over a wide range of ambient temperatures. This makes it an ideal source for use in environments where the room temperature is not precisely controlled. Unlike conventional sources that may require half an hour to warm up, the unique design of this source allows the device to achieve stable operation within seconds of being turned on. This saves time and effort for technicians in the field or on the production floor.

In DWDM applications, precise wavelength control is essential for obtaining accurate test measurements. With wavelength accuracy at the picometer level, the OZ tunable source is able to meet these demanding requirements. While the operating wavelength of most laser diodes is dependent on the current through the laser, the design of OZ Optics' tunable laser will automatically compensate for changes in output power to restore the wavelength to its desired value.

DWDM applications for the metro marketplace require lasers operating at precise wavelengths to ensure that light intended for one channel does not interfere with adjacent channels. The precise wavelength control of the TL-100 intelligent tunable laser diode source allows one to replace an array of specific-wavelength sources with a single tunable source. By tuning the source, one can set the source to the specific channel required.

OZ Optics also makes banks of 4 to 8 tunable laser modules for OEM applications. Each laser in a bank can be individually tuned to cover any of up to 10 channels (at 50 GHz spacing). Not only does the TL-100 tunable source offer accurate wavelength control, but it also provides excellent power level control and stability. Power level accuracy is better than 1%, over a wide range of temperatures and wavelengths, with stability of better than 0.01 dB. With specifications like these, the TL-100 intelligent tunable laser diode source is well suited to countless applications where stability, accuracy, and reliability are required.
