The PureSpectrum™ NLL is an ultra-low-noise, narrow linewidth semiconductor DFB laser for optical sensing applications like lidar and RF over fiber. The laser and its control electronics are integrated into a single module that uses precision feedback monitoring to provide ultra low-noise performance and superior wavelength stability. The built-in, sharp-edged frequency discriminator significantly reduces linewidth while maintaining single-mode operation across the full operating temperature range. The model also offers fast frequency tuning, which enables frequency-modulated continuous-wave sensing.
