II-VI Inc unveils 980nm uncooled pump laser module with in-package wavelength stabilizer

Engineered materials and optoelectronic component maker II-VI Inc of Saxonburg, PA, USA has launched an uncooled 980nm pump laser module that features patent-pending in-package wavelength stabilization within an 8-pin mini-DIL package.

High-bit-rate transceivers operating at 100Gb/s and higher continue to be designed into smaller packages to meet the needs of telecom carriers and cloud service providers for equipment with greater bandwidth to form-factor density. Since II-VI's new 980nm uncooled pump laser module integrates a wavelength stabilizer into the small 8-pin mini-DIL package, it eliminates the need for an external fiber Bragg grating in the fiber pigtail assembly. Instead, the new pump laser features an 80μm low-bend loss, small-bend radius and polarization-maintaining fiber pigtail that enables optical amplification within small transceiver packages.

"With our existing portfolio of ultra-compact optical components, we are the leader in pump lasers and micro-optics for transceiver-embedded optical amplifiers for the fast-growing 100Gb/s CFP2-ACO market," claims Dr Sanjai Parthasarathi, VP, product marketing & strategy, Optical Communications Group. "Our 8-pin uncooled mini-DIL pump lasers continue to be the smallest commercially available," he adds. "With the integrated wavelength stabilizer technology, these pump lasers are now also the most versatile solutions for the growing market of optically amplified high-bit-rate coherent transceivers."

The new 980nm pump lasers are built on II-VI's field-proven OC-2 packaging platform (with over 2 million modules shipped to date). They also house II-VI's market-proven G08 lasers to ensure what is claimed to be superior wavelength locking performance, reliability and stability. The new 980nm pump lasers, together with II-VI's portfolio of ultra-compact hybrid passives based on the firm's micro-optics technology platform, enable low-noise and high-power optical amplification within transceiver form-factors previously unachievable.
