The Continuous Wave (CW) laser source combines high-power output, narrow 100kHz linewidth and 0.01pm resolution tunability (C and/or L bands). Available in single or dual laser configurations, the IQTLS (Tunable Laser Source) can be controlled locally (via USB or Ethernet ports) and is SCPI VXI-11 compliant.
The IQTLS is a cost-effective solution for applications including coherent / Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing (OFDM) transmission and WDM network emulation.

Superior Power Accuracy
The IQTLS provides advanced calibration for flat power response, ideal for applications including coherent / OFDM transmission and WDM networks.
Instant & Intuitive Local Control
You can control wavelength and power for one or both lasers via the dial on the front panel of the IQTLS – one simple intuitive control for immediate results.
Powerfully Intuitive Remote PC Control
The Test Instrument Manager (TIM) application puts remote control at your fingertips via the USB or Ethernet ports on the rear of the unit. This powerful and intuitive software gives you immediate access to view status, and control the laser(s) remotely. And as it is SCPI compliant – you can automate your commands at will.
Smarter Calibration for more Powerful Characterization
Coherent Solutions’ IQTLS (Tunable Laser Source) provide superior power calibration to ensure a flat power response. With all the tunable lasers under control of the TIM application, you can see how well each is characterized to work together for even results.
Typical ITLA Lasers
This figure illustrates the typical output power accuracy of standard ITLA lasers. The output power of each is recorded using a NIST traceable optical power meter. Measurements from each laser are taken at 10 different wavelengths for 7 different power settings. The data is taken from random sample of 12 lasers.
Mean error (abs) = 0.25dB Pk-Pk error = 1.038dB
IQTLS with Power Calibration
This figure illustrates the results of the same measurements, when the lasers are integrated into the IQTLS and controlled via the TIM application. The output power is now within 0.2dB across the entire range.
Mean error (abs) = 0.03dB Pk-Pk error = 0.20dB
All Coherent Solutions’ products come with a standard 3 year warranty.
