300 Gbit/Sec Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) Transmitter
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
Very high data rate optical communications technologies are required by the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization and by the telecommunications industry for integration into future networks and autonomous systems. Laser Power Corporation (LPC) offers a unique diode laser pumped solid state laser technology that enables maximum possible system information rates at the highly desired 1.5 um wavelength band utilizing dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM). This laser technology allows production of monolithic high data rate transmitter modules with higher power, lower noise and narrower linewidth than competing semiconductor systems. In addition to all of the advantages offered by solid state lasers, the LPC 1.5 um lasers have chirping capability (self-frequency modulation) which allows the suppression of nonlinear propagation effects such as stimulated Brilliuon scattering (SBS) in long fiber runs.
