II-VI unveils 980nm pump module with on-board wavelength stabiliser

II‐VI, a provider of pump laser modules and micro-optics for optical amplifiers, has introduced new uncooled 980nm pump laser modules that feature patent-pending in-package wavelength stabilisation to enable optical amplification within small transceiver packages. These are increasingly required as high-bit-rate coherent transceivers continue to be designed into ever smaller packages to meet the needs of telecom carriers and cloud service providers for equipment with greater density requirements.
