Semiconductor Optical Amplifier, 1064nm (SOA-1064-B )

Data Sheet

Product Overview

The Optilab SOA-1064-B is a semiconductor optical amplifier with high fiber-to-fiber gain, designed to be used in general applications to increase optical launch power to compensate for loss of other optical devices. The SOA-1064- B can be ordered with Single Mode (SM) or Polarization Maintaining (PM) fiber input/output. The SOA-1064-B has an operational wavelength: range between 1050nm to 1080nm.

The Benchtop unit incorporates a user-friendly front panel housing with a LCD monitor display, key switch, power adjust control and optical a remote USB computer interface.
