OSI Laser Diode presents 1625nm pulsed laser diode

OSI Laser Diode, an OSI Systems company, has introduced the SCW 1632-350R, a high-power, pulsed laser diode module for optical testing applications.

Housed in a 14-pin butterfly package, the new ridge waveguide (RWG) Fabry-Perot (FP) laser diode is optically coupled to a singlemode fibre (SMF) pigtail and includes a thermoelectric cooler (TEC) and an electrically-isolated temperature-sensing thermistor.

Ideal for applications where high-peak pulsed optical power is required, the new device is specifically designed for use in optical spectrum analysers (OSAs) and optical time-domain reflectometers (OTDRs). The higher power gives the OTDR manufacturer greater dynamic range capability, the company claims.

OSI Laser Diode’s SCW 1632-350R operates at 1625nm and features optical power of 350mW (typical).  It joins the family of high-power pulsed laser diode modules, including the previously introduced SCW 1532-500R that operates at 1550nm and features higher than 500mW optical power. Both modules are RoHS compliant and feature the industry-standard pin-out packaging that offers excellent pulse drift performance and high stability.
