APIC CWL-80-1550-168 Ultra-Low RIN DFB laser
This ultra-low noise, high power DFB laser is based on proprietary epitaxy and laser design optimized for elimination of the relaxation oscillations. Once biased at nominal current the laser exhibits no measurable RIN and operates in the shot noise limit. It is hermetically sealed in a standard 14-pin Butterfly package with an internal thermo-electric cooler (TEC) and photodiode for power monitoring. The laser is available at customer-selected DWDM ITU wavelengths. This allows the laser to be an exceptional choice for a very broad spectrum of RF over Fiber applications.
This unmatched performance is paired with a very high optical power that translates directly in increased gain for RF over Fiber without the need for noisy optical amplifiers. Laser output power and TEC set points can be externally adjusted.
