Santec offers Full-band High Performance Tunable Laser System


Product Name: Full-band High Performance Tunable Laser System

Production code:

Santec, a leading designer and manufacturer of tunable lasers, optical instruments, and fiber-optic components, introduces the Full-band High Performance Tunable Laser System, Full-band TSL that covers the ultra-wide tuning range of 1260 to 1680nm (O-band to U-band). The system combines up to four Santec tunable lasers (TSL-510 and TSL-710) with an optical switch module (OSU-100, new) and control software. The complete Full-band TSL has excellent cost performance, high wavelength accuracy and fast sweeping for use in both R&D and production environments. The Full-band TSL can be easily controlled via GPIB and USB on PC using the custom GUI.

The Full-band TSL may be configured with Santec’s Swept Test System hardware to provide WDL and PDL measurements over the entire tuning range from 1260 to 1680nm.
