ZURICH -- EXALOS AG, an ISO 9001:2000 certified company, has released a NEW TOSA-1550 nm Superluminescent Light Emitting Diode Line. Superluminescent Light Emitting Diodes (SLEDs) are light-emitting diodes utilizing amplification by stimulated emission, but having insufficient feedback for oscillations to build up and to achieve lasing action. They are much more powerful than standard LEDs and are particularly advantageous for applications requiring high power density. The new product EXS1505-8111 is part of EXALOS’s family of broadband SLEDs for fiber optic sensor, optical coherence tomography, fiber optic gyroscope, and fiber optic telecommunications, instrumentation applications.

The EXS1505-8111 offers high output power and large bandwidth in a very cost efficient housing. Typical FWHM bandwidth is 60 nm. The output has a spectral ripple of less than 0.1 dB. An operating current of up to 200 mA generates typical optical output power of 0.5 mW in the single mode fiber. The product is delivered in a TO-56 housing with different fiber pigtails, including multimode and polarization maintaining fiber. The devices are based on EXALOS proprietary patent design. Devices are in production and BELLCORE GR-468-CORE qualified. EXALOS’s experts will be proud to present and discuss the most innovative solutions at the Laser 2005 in Munich, Germany.
