Pulsed laser diode modules

OSI Laser Diode

OSI Laser Diode, Inc. (LDI), an OSI Systems Company, introduces the SCW 1532-500R high-power, pulsed laser diode module that features power higher than 500 mW and operates at 1550 nm. It is ideal for use in optical spectrum analyzers (OSAs) and optical time domain reflectometers (OTDRs).

The 14-pin butterfly package with an industry-standard pin-out offers excellent pulse drift performance and high stability. The 1550 nm high power laser diode module is the first in a series of three devices. Two more modules with 1310 nm and 1625 nm wavelengths, respectively, are in development and will be released soon.

The laser diode is optically coupled to an SMF fiber pigtail and includes a thermoelectric cooler (TEC) and an electrically isolated temperature-sensing thermistor. Other features of the 1550 nm pulsed laser diode module include optical power at 500 mW, a threshold current of 70 mA, and a typical forward voltage of 2V to a maximum of 3V. For added convenience, standard connectors are optional, making the new device easy to integrate into an existing or a new optical test and measurement system where high peak pulsed optical power is required.

OSI Laser Diode's new device offers operating temperature ranges from 0 to 65 degrees C and storage temperature (non-operational) ranges from -40 degrees C to 85 degrees.

The company will be demonstrating the new device at SPIE Photonics West 2014 on 4-6 February 2014 at the Moscone Center (booth #2029) in San Francisco, California (US).
