The 850nm 10mW Superluminescent Diode sld diode is a light source for ophthalmic and medical OCT application, fiber transmission systems, fiber optic gyros, fiber optic sensors,optical coherence tomography, optical measurements. The diode is packaged in 14-pin standard butterfly package with monitor photodiode and thermo-electric cooler (TEC). Module is pigtailed with single mode polarization maintaining fiber and connectorized by FC/APC connector.
BoxOptronics provide 1310nm 1mW superluminescent diodes SLD mini package, This SLD is built into a 6-pin small package with an integrated thermoelectric cooler (TEC) and thermistor to ensure output stability. The output is coupled into an SM or PM fiber. SLDs are applied in situations where a smooth and broadband optical spectrum (i.e. low temporal coherence), combined with high spatial coherence and relatively high intensity, is required.
The 1310nm Superluminescent Diodes SLD is highly qualified SLEDs for a diverse range of Fiber Optic Gyroscopes(FOG) applications. These SLEDs can operate over demanding temperature ranges, increased shock/vibrations levels, and have verified long lifetimes due to their use in defense and space environments.
1550nm Superluminescent Diodes SLED are optical sources with a rather wide optical bandwidth. In that they differ from both lasers, that have a very narrow spectrum, and white light sources, that exhibit a much larger spectral width. This characteristic mainly reflects itself in a low temporal coherence of the source (which is the limited capability of the emitted light wave to maintain the phase over time). SLED may however exhibit a high degree of spatial coherence, meaning that they can be efficiently coupled into single-mode optical fibers. Some applications take advantage of the low temporal coherence of SLED sources to achieve high spatial resolution in imaging techniques. The coherence length is a quantity frequently used to characterize the temporal coherence of the light source. It is related to the path difference between the two arms of an optical interferometer over which the light wave is still capable to generate an interference pattern.
The 1310nm 12mW SLD Superluminescent Diodes is highly qualified SLEDs for a diverse range of Fiber Optic Gyroscopes(FOG) applications. These SLEDs can operate over demanding temperature ranges, increased shock/vibrations levels, and have verified long lifetimes due to their use in defense and space environments.
The NIR 830 Superluminescent Diodes SLD that operates in a true inherent superluminescent mode. This superluminescent property generates broader band at higher drive currents in contrast to other conventional SLED which are ASE-based, here high drive tends to give narrower band. Its low coherence reduces Rayleigh backscattering noise. Coupled with high power and large spectral width, it offsets photoreceiver noise and improves spatial resolution (in OCT) and measurand sensitivity (in sensors). The SLED is available in 14-pin butterfly package. It is compliance with the requirements of Bellcore Document GR-468-CORE.
