SHIPS TODAY: Fiber-coupled DFB laser diodes (1030 nm DFB, 1064 nm, 1310 nm, 1550 nm or any wavelength between 1250 nm and 1650 nm) are offered as stock items or associated with a CW or pulsed laser diode driver. They are compatible with our high speed nanosecond pulsed drivers or low noise laser diode driver for ultra-narrow linewidth single frequency emission. The single-mode laser diode can reach high powers up to 500 mW in the nanosecond pulse regime. Most turn-key diode & driver solutions are optimized for single-shot to CW performances with pulse durations down to 1 ns. The laser diode precision pulses are generated internally by an on-board pulse generator, or on demand from an external TTL signal.
