Where to Buy Seed Lasers

Seed lasers are low-power lasers characterized by excellent beam quality and low noise levels, serving as input sources for high-power amplifiers or injection-locked laser systems. These lasers are crucial for applications requiring precise control over the initial laser beam properties to ensure optimal performance in subsequent amplification stages.

SHIPS TODAY: Fiber-coupled seed laser diodes (emitting at 1030 nm, 1064 nm, 1550 nm ) are offered as stock items or associated with a CW laser diode driver 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 of DFB laser diode modules. 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 width lengths 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.
