Introduction

These singlemode 1550 nm laser diodes can reach high power in nanosecond pulse regime up to 500 mW. Most Turn-key diode + driver solutions are optimized from single-shot to CW performances with pulse width lengths down to 1 nanosecond. The 1550nm laser diode precision pulses are generated internally by an on-board pulse generator, or on demand from an external TTL signal. It becomes easy to generate complex burst shapes.

 

Key features

  • Wavelength : 1550 nm or select the wavelength you need between 1260 and 1650 nm (Most 1310, 1550 and 1650 nm models are in stock)
  • 6 models for each wavelength : 5 singlefrequency DFB models (2 models with ultra-narrow linewidth) and 1 Bragg grating based with >400 mW CW power
  • All versions are fiber-coupled and all DFB versions include an isolator (special versions without isolator are also available on demand)
  • Up to 400 mW CW  (this high power model only available from up to 1500 nm)
  • Up to 600 mW peak power
  • Down to 1 ns pulse width
  • Low noise CW emission
  • Butterfly Type-1 pinning or please ask for other pinning

Models

These 1550nm laser diodes combined with our high end flexible pulsed laser diode driver are an ideal tool for LIDAR or 3D-sensing R&D teams. TOF (Time-Of-Flight) experiments can be setup very rapidly with these complete flexible solutions.

The GUI software of the optional drivers lets the user have total control of all module functions. It includes several libraries for software integration (LabVIEW VIs, DLLs, Hexa, Python etc.)

These 1550 nm laser diode & turn-key solutions work also in series with other products in our range like (see the ordering information below for the various configurations with several driver models):

Combined with our pulse delay generator called “TOMBAK”, it becomes easy to create a complete bench simulating any type of structured multiple Burst in the nanosecond range (see some examples in the pictures window).
