II-VI unveils dual 980nm pump laser with 810mW per port

II‐VI Photonics, a provider of pump laser modules for terrestrial and submarine optical networks, has announced the general availability of its high-power, 2 x 810mW, dual 980nm pump laser module.

The new dual-chip, dual-output, pump laser modules enable designers to replace two laser modules with one. Housed within the compact 10-pin mini-butterfly package, they consume less electrical power, generate less heat and enable significant reductions in the size of high-performance, multi-stage optical amplifier designs.
