E-Newsletter [New products and Bios/Photonics West 2012]

January 18, 2012

We’re proud to be exhibiting at BiOS/Photonics West 2012, and we hope to see you there!

Date: 2012/1/21-26
Location: The Moscone Center
San Francisco, California, USA
Booth: #8527 (BiOS), #527 (Photonics West)

Be sure to visit us at BiOS and Photonics West 2012, where we’ll be introducing NEW 100kHz swept source (HSL-mini), and our LCOS based Wave Processor for Next Generation ROADM and high speed optical component test systems as well as Compact OCT System, IVS-300.

NEW! 100kHz Swept Source  HSL-mini

Santec introduces a 100kHz MEMS based high speed swept source. The advanced source realizes fast scans up to 100 kHz, while maintaining a wide scan rage of over 150 nm. These features provide a distinctive advantage in ultra high-speed imaging or motion-sensitive applications, i.e. ophthalmology and endoscope applications.

  • Santec proprietary MEMS technology
  • 100kHz unidirectional sweep
  • Wide swept range >150nm
  • K-Trigger integrated
  • Stable operation
  • 1.3um wavelength band (1.06um available later)
  • Compact size (144x193x75mm)
  • OEM package/Custom available
  • USB interface

Compact OCT System IVS-300

This all-in-one, portable system is especially suitable for feasibility studies in clinical research applications, or for preliminary general OCT studies. This system provides a low cost solution and a simple interface, like a microscope.

  • High performance
    – High speed: 30kHz A line rate
    – High axial resolution: – High sensitivity: >100dB
  • Easy operation
    – Touch panel
    – 2D/3D image
  • Compact 2 axis handheld probe
  • High-Resolution type & Cross Polarization type available
  • Free 3D Viewer attached


Swept Test System STS-510

The Santec Swept Test System, STS-510, has been developed to streamline photonic testing, providing a complete solution where high-speed analysis with high resolution and accuracy is key. Combining Santec’s 5th generation tunable laser, TSL-510, with a Santec Swept Processing Unit SPU-100 and custom software the complete STS-510 system optimizes WDL measurement for use in both R&D and production environments.

  • Accurate WDL characteristics measurement (high power repeatability <+/-0.02dB))
  • Automatic normalization of laser source power
  • High wavelength resolution & accuracy
  • Reduced measurement time
  • Supporting LabVIEW control software
  • Optical components and modules characterization
  • Photonic material characterization

WaveProcessorTM WPA-900

The WPA-900 is a system programmable to generate arbitrary filter shapes with santec’s unique LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) technology. It can be used as an optical equalizer for high-speed signals, as an adaptive DWDM channel filtering, or as a flexible test and measurement system.

  • Programmable arbitrary spectral shaping
  • Attenuation and bandwidth variable for each individual ITU-T grids
  • Excellent frequency resolution, 0.2GHz (typ.)
  • Optical equalizer for high-speed optical signals
  • 40Gb/s, 100Gb/s transmission test
