LaserBlade – Modular Tunable Laser

Unrivalled Versatility and Flat Power Response

The LaserBlade is a Continuous Wave (CW), tunable laser source offering high-power output, narrow 100kHz linewidth and 0.01pm resolution tunability (C and/or L bands).

Its modular design allows for seamless integration with the MTP1000 and MTPmini chassis and it can be used with any combination of our MTP Blades. You can build a customized optical test platform to deliver reliable and repeatable results in manufacturing or research and development environments.

The MTP1000 and LaserBlade offer exceptional scalability – each MTP1000 chassis has capacity for 9 Blades, each holding 2 or 4 lasers of your choice (C and/or L). Control up to 36 individual lasers individually or in-sync with our intuitive software.

Key features

  • 2 or 4 lasers per blade
  • Full tunability across C and/or L band
  • Smarter calibration for enhanced power flatness
  • 0.01pm tuning resolution
  • Narrow 100kHz linewidth, up to 15dBm of power
  • Modular test platform compatible with expanding range of Blades
  • Remote PC control (Ethernet or USB)
  • Intuitive, easy to use software.

Target applications

  • Stable local oscillator for coherent receivers
  • WDM network loading
  • General purpose stable light source for telecom and physics
  • Amplifier testing
  • With its polarization maintaining output, it’s ideal for experiment and testing that require precise control of your polarization state.

Superior power accuracy

The LaserBlade provides advanced calibration for flat power response, ideal for applications including coherent / Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing (OFDM) transmission and WDM networks.

Smarter calibration for more powerful characterization

Coherent Solutions provides superior calibration to ensure a flat power response. With all the lasers under control of the TIM application, you can see how well each is characterized to work together for even results.

Typical ITLA Lasers

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

LaserBlade with Power Calibration

This figure illustrates the results of the same measurements, when the lasers are integrated into the LaserBlade 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
