The SLD-101S is a highly stable superluminescent light source designed specifically for OCT, sensor and test & measurement applications. During operation, both the current and temperature are accurately controlled for superb power and spectral stability. The output power and diode temperature are stabilised to 0.02 dB and 0.05°C respectively. The light source has three available operation modes: constant current, constant power (optional), and modulated power. The modulation can be either external or internal, with different waveforms (sine or square) and different speeds (up to 100 kHz). One unique feature is that users can select either low or high degree of polarisation (DOP) options for specific applications. Other user-selectable options include output fibre type (SM or PM), centre wavelength, spectral width, and output power. Finally, the SLD-101S comes with USB, RS-232, Ethernet, and GPIB communication ports for easy, flexible interface with computers and other instruments. It is an ideal source for OCT, fibre sensors, fibre gyros, PM patch cord extinction ratio (ER) measurement, and general-purpose test and measurement.
