LASER COMPONENTS offers a high performance narrow linewidth single frequency 1064nm laser. This External Cavity Laser (ECL) is based on RIO’s proprietary planar technology - PLANEX™. The PLANEX laser consists of a gain chip and a planar lightwave circuit (PLC) that includes a Bragg grating. The coupling of these components forms a cavity with significant benefits: with up to 20mW output power, very low RIN, low phase noise and narrow linewidth, and very low wavelength sensitivity to bias current and temperature. The industry-standard, 14-pin butterfly package, make this laser an easy drop-in replacement for existing designs. RIO’s PLANEX lasers are the next generation of optical solutions - combining the high performance of long cavity fibre lasers with the low cost, simplicity and Telcordia GR-468 reliability qualified technology platform semiconductor lasers.
The 1064 nm PLANEX’s higher output power, low noise and narrow linewidth ideally position this semiconductor optical solution for applications where absolute accuracy, lifetime reliability over demanding field conditions, and high resolution are vital, such as seeding of fibre and solid state lasers, Second harmonic Generation (SHG), Optical Parametric Oscillators (OPO), laser spectroscopy, LiDAR and other precision metrology applications.
