Lumentum Holdings Inc (LITE) introduced recently the T13 Series of 980 nm pump laser modules which are based on an industry-first uncooled distributed feedback (DFB) 980 nm pump laser chip. The T13 family of products combine a high-power DFB diode laser with additional components into an ultra-small form factor, coaxial package. Sample quantities are available now, with volume production in December 2016.

“The T13 Series leverages the same TO-package demonstrated in numerous high-volume consumer applications and establishes the DFB’s future role in compact, reliable 980 nm pump lasers for optical amplification applications,” remarked Jay Skidmore, vice president, research and development, High Power Lasers. “The DFB laser eliminates the external grating needed for conventional pump laser designs that opens a path towards much higher levels of integration. Additional benefits include fiber length reduction, a decrease in the device’s footprint, plus lower power requirements.”

The Lumentum T13 Series, operating up to 200 mW, meets the telecommunications industry’s stringent requirements, counting Telcordia GR-468-CORE for hermetic 980 nm pump modules. The pump modules target single-channel and narrow-band amplifier applications for high-bit-rate transmission modules and CFPx transceivers.
