Wherever rapid measurement, cost effective monitoring or miniaturisation of devices is crucial, the outstanding characteristics of tunable semiconductor lasers show their advantages.
Partnering with nanoplus GmbH, a vertically integrated supplier of semiconductor lasers, which is the only manufacturer worldwide routinely providing single and multi-mode lasers at any wavelength from 760 to 6000 nm.
The key element for single-mode emission and tuning characteristics is the DFB-grating. This complex coupled grating shows many advantages over index coupled gratings such as low threshold currents, high output efficiency and excellent side mode suppression ratios (SMSR).
nanoplus lasers operate reliably in tens of thousands of installations worldwide, including chemical and metallurgical industries, gas pipelines, power plants, medical systems, airborne and satellite applications.
The most common application is gas spectroscopy, specifically Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (TDLAS).
