Swept Tunable Laser with Exclusive Integrated Wavemeter
Luna’s new PHOENIX™ 1200 tunable laser module offers MEMS technololgy in a compact footprint and NIST-traceable, picometer wavelength accuracy . The integrated wavemeter makes it ideal for fiber optic test and measurement, spectroscopy and Fiber bragg grating-based sensing applications.
BLACKSBURG, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 19, 2009--
Luna Technologies, a division of Luna Innovations Incorporated
(NASDAQ:LUNA), announces the PHOENIX™ 1200 tunable swept laser module
with picometer accuracy and the industry’s first integrated wavemeter.
1200 C-band laser has NIST-traceable accuracy and sub-picometer
resolution, making it ideal for fiber optic test and measurement,
spectroscopy and fiber bragg grating-based sensing applications.
“Our new modular tunable laser package has the best wavelength accuracy
and resolution in the industry,” said Dr. Brian Soller, Executive Vice
President and General Manager of Luna Technologies. “This laser provides
the precision and accuracy required for the most challenging
applications in a small and easy-to-integrate package. It is an
excellent choice for applications with demanding precision requirements
such as fiber optic test systems, inertial navigational systems, laser
ranging, spectroscopy in the near IR, and distributed sensing for stress
and strain measurement.”
The PHOENIX™ 1200 tunable external cavity laser device is driven by a
circuit designed for low noise and highly linear swept performance with
a mode-hop-free tuning range of 1515 nm – 1565 nm. The PHOENIX™ 1200
also comes standard with a miniaturized, internal NIST-traceable
wavemeter, giving it the highest accuracy available while maintaining
its compact footprint. The package includes a software development kit
and USB interface that allow for easy customization of applications in
development and manufacturing environments.
Luna’s laser line is based on the former Iolon ‘Apollo’ class of tunable
lasers, acquired by Luna. The PHOENIX™ 1200 tunable laser module is the
third product in Luna’s laser
platform and is available immediately, with four to six weeks
typical for delivery.
Luna will be demonstrating its new laser, Optical Backscatter
Reflectometer™ and Optical Vector Analyzer™ product platforms in booth
#734 at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition and
The National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (OFC/NFOEC)
which begins March 24 in San Diego, CA. For more information, visit Luna
