EP1550-NLW-B-400– 1550nm DM Laser Diode for Gas Sensing
The EP1550-NLW-B-400 is a tunable single-frequency diode laser for gas sensing from Eblana Photonics. This laser which is available in a fiber-coupled 14-pin butterfly, TO-56, and TO-39 package, utilized Eblana’s proprietary discrete-mode (DM) technology to produces a tunable single-frequency laser with excellent side mode suppression ratio (SMSR), without the mode hops inherent to most distributed feedback (DFB) lasers. The EP1550-NLW-B-400 has a center wavelength of 1521 nm, which can be tuned at a rate of 0.1 nm/oC while maintaining a maximum linewidth of 2MHz making it ideal for Acetylene (C2H2) gas detection. In addition to the excellent spectral properties of this laser diode, the EP1550-NLW-B-400 also exhibits highly efficient power consumption, with a slop efferent of 0.05 mW/mA, requiring only 120mA of drive current at a maximum output power of 8mW.
All of these features make the EP1550-NLW-B-400 laser a robust tool for gas sensing application, in an industrial, laboratory, or field setting.
