LaserBlade – Modular Tunable Laser

Product status: DISCONTINUED as of 1 March 2019
Find out about calibration, servicing and repairs for this product. For a suitable alternative we recommend the matrIQ-Laser or LaserPXIe tunable laser sources.


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

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. Control up to 36 individual lasers individually or in-sync with our intuitive software.


  • 2 or 4 lasers per blade
  • Full tunability across C 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.
