Exalos releases 1300nm and 850 nm SLEDs for OCT, biomedical

Date Announced: 03 Feb 2006

New 1300nm Gaussian Superluminescent Light Emitting Diode SLED

Zurich, Switzerland. EXALOS has extended its family of powerful Superluminescent Light Emitting Diodes (SLEDs) with the new 1300 nm Gaussian generation. SLEDs are semiconductor light sources that combine the spatial coherence of a laser diode with the temporal incoherence of an LED. This combination is extremely useful for a wide range of applications.

The EXS13G2-2111 is especially suited for optical coherence tomography (OCT) and biomedical applications thanks to its ultra high power and ultra broad bandwidth, and high suppression of second coherence peaks. Its spectra show a clean Gaussian shape with very low ripple values.

Typical values for the EXS13G2-2111 are 20.0 mW optical output powers in a single mode fiber and 55 nm 3dB spectral bandwidth. The standard product is delivered in a 14 PIN Butterfly housing with built in Thermo electric cooler (TEC) and monitor diode. The devices are based on EXALOS proprietary design. Devices are in production and BELLCORE GR-468-CORE and MIL-STD-883 qualified.

New 850 nm Superluminescent Light Emitting Diode SLED Line

EXALOS has extended its family of powerful Superluminescent Light Emitting Diodes (SLEDs) with the new 850 nm Line. SLEDs are semiconductor light sources that combine the spatial coherence of a laser diode with the temporal incoherence of an LED. This combination is extremely useful for a wide range of applications.

SLEDs at 850 nm are especially suited for optical coherence tomography (OCT) and biomedical applications thanks to their high output power and large bandwidth, and high suppression of second coherence peaks. Their spectra show a clean Gaussian shape with very low ripple values.

Typical values for the EXS8501-1411 are 1.2 mW optical output powers in a single mode fiber and 50 nm 3dB spectral bandwidth. The EXS8505-1411 achieves 2.0 mW optical output powers in a single mode fiber and 45 nm 3dB spectral bandwidth. The EXS8510-1411 achieves 5.0 mW optical output powers in a single mode fiber and 35 nm 3dB spectral bandwidth.

The standard product is delivered in a 14 PIN DIL housing with built in thermo electric cooler (TEC) and monitor diode. Uncooled devices in TOSA housings are also available. The devices are based on EXALOS proprietary design. Devices are in production and BELLCORE GR-468-CORE and MIL-STD-883 qualified.
