DX1 Module offers narrow linewidth laser diodes

The DX1 Module with integrated Current Source & Temperature Controller offers a wide range of DFB laser diodes ranging from 760nm-2327nm for various gas sensing applications. At the heart of their gas sensing lasers is Eblana’s Discreet-Mode (DM) technology which allows for excellent SMSR and narrow linewidth (<2MHz). Since laser-based gas sensing requires excellent tuning characteristics, Eblana’s DM lasers are the ideal choice because they feature mode-hop-free tuning over a minimum of 2nm.

The fully integrated unit is specifically designed for delivering precise TEC control and an ultra-low noise current source for optimised laser performance. The DX1 module is available with SM or PM fiber.

Eblana Photonics specializes in the design and manufacture of advanced semiconductor Discrete-Mode Laser Diodes (DFB-like) between 760nm – 2350nm. The main applications for the Eblana lasers are Gas Sensing, Metrology, and Optical Communications.  Eblana’s DM lasers possess inherently narrow linewidth relative to traditional DFBs, in addition to superior electro-optical performance with respect to output power, threshold, SMSR and tuning characteristics. These devices are available as OEM components (14-pin BF packages and TO-cans), as well as modules complete with drive electronics and TEC control. See our new Lasers 101 page for in depth information on the attributes of Lasers
