CWDM Super-Wideband Light Source

Amonics ALSD-CWDM super-wideband light source provides high spectral density, at above -30dBm/nm, across 1250nm to 1650nm. It is an ideal tool for simple characterization of CWDM components and communication links. This broadband source is also extremely effective in high resolution optical coherent tomography (OCT) applications.

The benchtop super-wideband light source incorporates a user-friendly front panel housing with a LCD monitor display, key switch, power control knob and optical connectors. RS232 or Ethernet computer interface is also equipped.
