Pilot Photonics’ iCLA incorporates a monolithically integrated comb laser and demultiplexer that supplies four or more simultaneously generated coherent, phased matched outputs on separate fibres, replacing up to 4 integrated tunable laser assemblies (iTLAs). It is designed for driving multiple 400G/800G coherent optical engines on individual fibers from a single laser module.
Pilot Photonics’ tunable lasers are InP monolithic single mode lasers in the C-band. The lasers exhibit a tuning range of > 30 nm centered at 1550 nm, with distinct mode-islands and high side-mode suppression ratio. The tuning of these devices rely on reverse voltage controlled electro-optic effect which results in a fast switching, low linewidth < 150 kHz and low power consumption.
Pilot Photonics offers DFB lasers with a 3dB frequency response bandwidth above 20 GHz for applications that rely on high-speed direct modulation.
These lasers are offered in standard 7-pin butterfly package with RF (K) connector, internal thermoelectric cooler, isolator, and polarization maintaining (PM) fiber pigtail with FC/APC connectors.
The Lyra OCS 1000 is an optical frequency comb source based on our patented technology that offers a flat comb of coherent wavelengths with low optical linewidth, tunable wavelength spacing (free spectral range), and excellent stability.
Pilot Photonics’ wavelength tunable directly modulated laser is based on a multi-section directly modulated laser design with integrated amplifier and proprietary chirp reduction system. It is ITU-T G.989.2 class 1, compliant. Sampling in high-speed butterfly packages, or benchtop unit with driving controllers now available.
