distributed feedback lasersS Edistributed feedback lasers from NKT Photonics

Koheras single-frequency fiber lasers are longitudinally single-mode and offer extremely low phase- and intensity noise levels. Available in the erbium or ytterbium wavelength ranges and with frequency conversion to many other bands. Reliability is our highest priority, and the all-fiber DFB design ensures robust and reliable operation for thousands of hours. Koheras lasers are extremely stable and mode-hop-free – even under changing environmental conditions. We can deliver shot-noise-limited lasers for applications demanding extra low-intensity noise.

double-clad fibersS Edouble-clad fibers from NKT Photonics

Our ytterbium-doped double-clad fibers offer the largest single-mode cores in the world. The high numerical aperture for the pump core/inner cladding lets you pump with high efficiency, even with inexpensive or high-power broad-area emitting pumps.
