II-VI launches 400mW micro-pump laser for high-temperature operation in next-gen coherent transceivers

Engineered materials and optoelectronic component maker II-VI Inc of Saxonburg, PA, USA has launched its 400mW micro-pump laser for high-temperature operation.

Next-generation coherent transmission applications continue to demand amplifiers that can operate efficiently in space-, power- and thermally constrained environments. II-VI’s single-mode uncooled micro-pump laser maintains a high output power of 400mW, with only 1W of power consumption, in environments where temperatures can reach 85°C.

“Last year, we nearly doubled the output power of our micro-pump lasers to 400mW, far ahead of the competition,” says chief marketing officer Dr Sanjai Parthasarathi. “This product now provides both the most compact solution with the widest range of environmental performance in the market today, enabling our customers to significantly shrink the size and reduce the power consumption of transceiver-embedded amplifier designs, enabling new, highly compact transceivers operating at very high bit rates up to and beyond 1Tbps.”

The micro-pumps are available with 80μm PM980 and 125μm HI 1060 single-mode fibers, which can achieve a very tight bend radius to match the micro-pump’s small 10mm x 4.4mm package footprint.

II-VI is exhibiting in booth #467 at the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC 2019) in Dublin, Ireland (23-25 September), showcasing the most recent additions to its broad portfolio of differentiated solutions for optical networks. The product showcase includes what is claimed to be one of the industry’s broadest and most vertically integrated portfolios of products for ROADM line-cards and highly compact optical amplifier solutions tailored to enable high-bit-rate DWDM transceivers.
