Laser Diode Offers 6 W
Providing power for pumping amplifiers in cable and FTTx networks, Bookham’s Telcordia GR-468-CORE un-cooled fiber-coupled multimode laser diode delivers up to 6 W of power in a 105 um multimode fiber with a 0.22 NA. The component allows service providers to extend triple play service delivery to customers located further away from the central office or the cable head-end with its erbium-doped air-clad fibre technology. The laser diode can replace DSL running on coax/copper with GPON running on fiber, and incorporates catastrophic optical damage (COD) suppression technology to the laser diode facet.
