1542 18 GHz 1310 nm DFB Laser

The 1542 18 GHz 1310 nm Microwave Distributed Feedback (DFB) Laser provides exceptional performance for linear fiber optics communications in very wide bandwidth applications. EMCORE’s linear fiber optics are an excellent alternative to using coaxial cable systems to transmit 10 MHz to 18 GHz signals. They offer significant improvements in reliability of microwave communications networks by transmitting the RF signal in its original format.

The basic 1542 laser module can be integrated into a complete transmitter either as a flange-mount for extreme environments, or as a plug-in for EMCORE’s System 10000 rack-mount system.
