Stepped external-cavity tunable laser modules that cover all telecom wavelengths
The OSICS T100 is a stepped external-cavity tunable laser module that features a patented T100 cavity. EXFO’s cost-effective module combines a narrow linewidth, high output power and ultra-low optical noise and significantly increases the dynamic range of measurements. Each T100 module can be tuned anywhere across a 100 nm range or can be integrated into the OSICS TKOS-FBL kit to provide full telecom wavelength coverage, from 1260 nm to 1680 nm, in a single unit.
The OSICS T100 and TKOS kit, and range of models, let you cover the entire telecom band. Plus, you can enjoy automated testing from 1260 nm to 1680 nm. In addition, each T100 laser wavelength can be tuned with a ±200 pm accuracy and ±10 pm step resolution (or 1 pm with the high-resolution R option).
The module’s unique T100 cavity eliminates broadband spontaneous emission (SSE) normally present in an external-cavity laser’s output, while maintaining a high output power. The OSICS T100 has one of the lowest figures of merit for SSE of any tunable laser on the market and dramatically improves measurement dynamic range during component testing.
The OSICS platform’s modular design gives you the freedom to purchase as you go, upgrading your equipment to cover different wavelengths according to your needs while staggering capital expenditure.
The TKOS kit combines a full band laser solution in a single unit. The kit is composed of an OSICS mainframe fitted with four lasers (T100 1310, T100 1415, T100 1520 and T100 1620) and a switch module (SWT APC) that creates a single-fiber output tunable-laser solution.
