"We acquired the intellectual property rights and manufacturing equipment in December 2006, to allow us to compete more effectively in Luna's existing fiber optic test and measurement markets by providing our customers with fast, flexible and cost-effective test and measurement products. We are also aggressively pursuing new markets such as industrial and medical sensing with our new laser," commented Kent Murphy, Luna Innovations' Chairman and CEO.

Product highlights of this miniaturized, 18-pin TEC-cooled package include fast tuning up to 500 Hz, mode-hop free swept operation over the C-band wavelength coverage from 1515 nm to 1565 nm, narrow linewidth less than 2 MHz and superior phase noise characteristics. The Phoenix 1000 tunable laser product is available immediately, with four to six weeks typical for delivery
