The QCL-DFB (NP) series are single longitudinal mode, narrow linewidth DFB quantum cascade lasers. Outputs are pulsed with peak outputs of up to 200mW. Custom wavelengths are available from 5,000nm to 16,000nm.
Coarse tuning of the centre wavelength is possible over approximately 10 nm using temperature control, at a rate of ~0.5 nm/K.
These DFB laser diodes come in a range of standard laser diode packages:
- TO8mm and TO3mm headers are available with or without cap.
- C-mount style
Optional windows and lenses fitted can be fitted; both BK7 and sapphire caps are available. Drive electronics are not included. Laser 2000 supplies a range of suitable drive drivers and temperature controllers. Please see the Laser Accessories section.
With a long lifetime and highly repeatable performance, these devices meet the demands of laboratory based applications and OEM applications alike. They are reliable in harsh and demanding environments.
Tackling Climate Change
Nanoplus lasers were onboard the Curiosity Mars Rover in 2012 and on the TROPOMI satellite in 2017. TROPOMI measures pollutants and greenhouse gases, tropospheric O3 and CH4.
