NP Photonics Releases Ultra-Narrow-Linewidth Fiber Laser
200-Hz Linewidth at 25 mW Ideal for Sensing, RF-Photonics, Metrology, Communications and General R&D
Tucson, Ariz., May 23, 2005 - NP Photonics expands its portfolio of industry-leading Scorpion(TM) single-frequency fiber lasers with the introduction of the Scorpion Brillouin Fiber Laser. The laser, which delivers light of extremely high spectral purity with an unprecedented spectral linewidth of 200 Hz, is offered with 25 mW of CW output power in a stand-alone unit. NP Photonics' new laser operates over the eye-safe wavelengths of the C-band (1530 nm - 1565 nm). The all-fiber design makes this laser robust against environmental disturbances and integrated electronic controls ensure low frequency and intensity noise.
These new ultra-narrow-linewidth fiber lasers represent a breakthrough in terms of commercially available low-noise laser technology and will pave the way to a variety of new applications in sensing, RF-photonics, metrology, communications and general research and development applications.
"We knew that by taking advantage of our EMF laser technology and incorporating it into the right design, we would be able to deliver a laser with extremely narrow linewidth. The biggest challenge was to develop a robust turnkey system that would work without requiring the customer to do any installation, adjustment or maintenance. With the Scorpion Brillouin Fiber Laser, our engineers have delivered what we hoped for," said Philippe Brak, vp of sales & marketing for NP Photonics.
The Scorpion Brillouin Fiber Laser will be introduced at the CLEO 2005 show in Baltimore at NP Photonics' booth #1341 and will be available with a delivery time of 8 weeks.
NP Photonics uses innovative glass and fiber technology to design, produce and deliver a new class of advanced light sources for sensing, medical and R & D markets. The company has developed a broad family of products including narrow-linewidth fiber lasers, ASE sources, fiber amplifiers, and high-power light sources.
