EMCORE has introduced its Model 1790 1550 nm High-Power Laser Module for LiDAR and Optical Sensing. The 1790 was developed for use as a CW coherent optical source for next-generation FMCW LiDAR systems in autonomous vehicles and other optical sensing applications. A custom version of this product is being adopted by a major provider of LiDAR systems.
The underlying technology for the Model 1790 has been in development for over 3-years and was designed to address demanding applications in industrial sensing and measurement. Its monolithic design, combined with optimized coupling optics, makes it highly immune to the mode or optical frequency hopping typically found with single isolator, external cavity designs. EMCORE’s LiDAR laser technology maintains optical frequency stability over temperature, suppressing false readings.
Highlights: Extremely narrow linewidth; High optical output power of 18 dBm; Wide operating temperature range from -10 °C to +65 °C; Different wavelengths available for custom applications and form factors; Product samples available soon!
