Testing All-Fiber Widely Tunable Thulium Lasers
 
By G. Stevens and T. Legga, Gooch & Housego

The broad emission spectrum of thulium fibers, which can extend from 1600 to 2200 nm, makes a thulium fiber laser an excellent choice for building widely tunable fiber lasers. This paper details Gooch & Housego's results testing an all-fiber thulium laser system that can be tuned to any wavelength between 1710 to 2110 nm, without using any moving mechanical parts.

Silicon Avalanche Photodiode (APD) Arrays

LASER COMPONENTS offers silicon avalanche photodiode (Si APD) arrays for applications in LIDAR and ACC within the 800 to 900 nm wavelength range. The SAH series of Si APD arrays are typically used in time-of-flight (TOF) sensors for distance measurements, such as in automotive sensing applications.

Laser Illumination For High-Speed Imaging

An incorrect or poorly lit subject affects the image, regardless of camera system quality. Therefore, the illumination source is just as important as the camera's resolution and sensitivity. See how a laser can be used for illumination in these four high-speed imaging application examples.

Laser-Gated Imaging

Laser-gated imaging is a technique for night vision that detects and recognizes targets at long range without the need for any natural light sources. This article discusses its general principles, as well as the advantages of imaging in different spectral bands in visible and infrared light.

Large-Format, Narrow Band Pass Filters (NBPF) – A Uniformity Challenge

Within so many diverse optical filtering applications, large-format (>100 mm diameter), narrow bandpass filters (NBPF) are required to be used alongside large collection optics in order to facilitate specific and selective analysis of a phenomena or the substance of interest.

Laser Beam Diagnostics In GHz Applications

It usually is insufficient to rely on one standard measurement technology when working with applications in exotic optical wavelengths and unusually low average powers. This white paper goes through an example of calculating many laser beam diagnostics within high GHz applications.
