NP Photonics Introduces Fiber Laser System

Jan. 26, 2004
Tucson, AZ, January 26, 2004. NP Photonics has introduced its latest generation Scorpion micro fiber laser system. The new Scorpion bench-top system features the same ultra-narrow line-width of its predecessor, yet now provides up to 150-mW of power across the C-band (1530 nm to 1565 nm), and includes an integrated Windows-based computer and large touch screen LCD display.

Tucson, AZ, January 26, 2004. NP Photonics has introduced its latest generation Scorpion micro fiber laser system. The new Scorpion bench-top system features the same ultra-narrow line-width of its predecessor, yet now provides up to 150-mW of power across the C-band (1530 nm to 1565 nm), and includes an integrated Windows-based computer and large touch screen LCD display.

With the integration of a fully functional computer, the system can be networked and all laser functions controlled directly from a desktop PC via Ethernet connection. In addition, the new touch screen LCD display makes it easy to control all laser functions from the front panel.

Applications for the Scorpion bench-top system include high-resolution spectroscopy, laser seeding, LIDAR and a number of other test and measurement and sensing applications � anywhere features such as high-power, low noise, ultra-narrow line-width and long coherence are required.

The bench-top Scorpion is turn-key operated and complies with CDRH requirements. It features thermal and piezo frequency tuning, and a built-in attenuator that allows full control of the laser's power output, from less than one milliwatt up to 150 mW.

"The latest version of our bench-top Scorpion fiber laser is very simple to operate and provides the user with the ability to network the laser just as you would any other computer," said Shibin Jiang, vice president of technology at NP Photonics. "The increased operability will make it much easier to control the laser parameters from your desktop PC or from the bench-top system itself. It is ideal for laboratory and university research."

The Scorpion Bench-top has the same industry-leading performance specifications as its predecessor. It features high mode stability (±30 MHz/hour), a closed loop RIN suppression system and very low phase noise. In addition, the system has an ultra-narrow spectral width of less than 3 kHz and maintains coherence over distances greater than 75 kilometers.

NP Photonics will demonstrate this new system at Photonics West 2003, booth #336, January 27-29 in San Jose, California.
