Tunable Lasers for Spectroscopy

Norcada designs and manufactures near-IR and mid-IR single mode semiconductor distributed feedback (DFB) lasers for industrial sensing and environmental monitoring applications.  Our DFB lasers come with two main styles of hermetic packaging configurations designed for temperature stabilization and wavelength tuning.

The TO can style packaging configuration consists of miniature thermoelectric cooler (TEC) housed inside the package which has a slanted optical window to further reduce back reflection. The TO style package also has the option to have a collimation lens mounted as part of the package. Standard TO packaging formats include a TO39 package and a TO66 package. The TO packaging design is compact and ideal for point sensing systems.  

Our 14-pin Butterfly style packaging comes with a more powerful thermoelectric cooler for temperature control and standard single mode fiber coupling.  All of our lasers are tested and certified prior to shipping to our customers.
