Lasers that designate 1.6mW of output power (also called 0.0016W lasers) can have either CW (continuous wave) or pulsed output. CW Lasers are always defined in average output power. Pulsed Lasers with an output power defined in Watts or Milliwatts usually define the laser’s average power, not the peak power of the laser.
Not many lasers have such a low output power lever. We currently offer a 1.5µm fiber amplifier in this power range.
The FA series offers a variety of standard and custom fiber amplifiers. Available in both OEM and Turnkey formats, our 1, 1.5, and 2um fiber amplifiers are manufactured to Telcordia standards and can be customized to meet your application requirements. With output powers of up to >40dBM and options for linear or random polarization, narrow linewidth, low noise, and input and output monitoring, our fiber amplifiers are ideal solutions for applications such as optical transport, FTTH & CATV, RF video overlay, and pulsed amplification.
