Introduction

It is a very compact SOA-based unit optimized for single-shot to CW performance with pulse width down to 1.5 nanosecond. This fiber optic modulator delivers precision pulses which are generated internally by an on-board pulse generator, or on-demand from an external TTL signal. SOM (Semiconductor Optical Modulator) can be compared with AOMs, EOMs or direct laser diode modulators. SOM maintain the narrow optical linewidth of an input CW signal while producing very short pulses. It is the only solution meeting all the constraints for a reliable, stable and efficient fiber-coupled  intensity modulation.

This fiber optic modulator is a high switching speed module. It operates as a lossless optical isolation switch, a full-range variable optical attenuator (VOA), or an optical shutter.

 

Key features

  • Lossless device
  • High dynamic range : >48 dB
  • Very low noise and stable signals
  • High speed : down to 500 ps rise/fall time
  • User design temporal pulse shape (SOM-Shape only)
  • High extinction ratio : >50 dB
  • No wavelength evolution along the pulse duration: SOM maintain the narrow optical linewidth of an input CW signal while producing very short pulses.

 

Applications

This high speed driver can be used for laser seeding, LIDAR or 1D-3D-sensing testing, VCSEL evaluation, Fiber lasers etc.

 

GUI & Libraries

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

This fiber optic modulator works alone or in series with other products in our range like:

SOM is an alternative to Acousto Optics Modulators or Electro Optics Modulators (for example iXBlue).

AeroDIODE products leverage proprietary, cutting edge technology which has been under development in the ALPhANOV technology center for over 12 years. AeroDIODE  is a member of EPIC European industry association and “Route des Lasers” cluster.
