Note: Your Quotation Request will be directed to LD-PD Inc.

The PL-SOA-C-A81-W1550-SASA from LD-PD Inc is a CW/Pulsed Semiconductor Optical Amplifier (SOA) that operates at a wavelength of 1528 nm - 1562 nm. It has a center wavelength of 1550 nm and saturated output power of 26 dBm (at -3 dB). This high-gain optical amplifier has an extinction ratio of 30 dB - 35 dB and a small signal gain of 35 dB. It has a gain flatness of 5 dB and gain ripple of 0.1 dB. This single-pass, traveling-wave amplifier has a polarization-dependent gain of 2 dB and noise figure of 6 dB. It has a chip length of 1.5 mm and waveguide refractive index of 3.2.

The PL-SOA-C-A81-W1550-SASA consists of a highly efficient InP/InGaAsP Multiple Quantum Well (MQW) layer structure. It has a built-in thermoelectric cooler and thermistor with a thermistor resistance of 10 kOhms. This SOA has a forward voltage of 1.6 V and consumes 1000 mA of current. It supports FC/APC connectors and also has SM or PM fiber with a diameter of 0.9 mm. This SOA is available in a 14-pin butterfly package and is ideal for fiber transmission systems, fiber optic gyros, fiber optic sensors, optical coherence tomography, and testing light source applications.
