For Immediate Release

Erbium-Doped Fiber Based ASE Light Source

DRAFT RELEASE - Version 1.0

Ottawa, Canada - March 4, 2005

OZ Optics is introducing ASE (Amplified Spontaneous Emission) broadband low coherence light sources for test and measurement. These sources are ideal for spectral measurements and system compliance testing. They also can be used in sensor applications.

A key feature of these new sources is that they do not exhibit any high frequency ripples. Such ripples in the spectrum of other sources degrade sensor performance and make spectral analysis difficult. Our high frequency spectral stability thus ensures better measurements and sensing.

OZ Optics’ ASE sources are available with as much as 500mW of output light in either the C or L wavelength bands, or in both. Units with or without flattened spectral response are offered. The output power may be user controlled via an optional variable attenuator. Custom configurations can be built for specific applications. Contact OZ Optics for details.
