SANTEC’s latest high-speed tunable laser source (model: TSL-770) delivers upgrades in speed, accuracy and range.

Product Name: High Performance, High Speed Tunable Laser
Product Model: TSL-770
In 1987, santec (headquarters located in Komaki City, Japan) introduced the world’s first external cavity single mode semiconductor tunable laser source. Santec has brought all the experience and knowledge gained over the past 30 years, to the all-new 7th generation of their High Performance, High Speed TSL series tunable laser. A ground up redesign of the laser resonator and control electronics make the TSL-770 our fastest tuning, widest scanning, lowest noise and narrowest linewidth laser ever. With models available in the 1260-1650nm range, the flexible TSL-770 is ideal choice for a wide range of applications; improving throughput, accuracy and precision in production, R&D and basic research. A proprietary resonator design enhances Q value and wavelength stability, opening doors for photonic investigations in the most cutting-edge of research applications. 


New Product Highlights
Best-in-Class Optical Performance
  • Maximum 200nm tuning range within 1250-1650nm
  • Mode-hop-free with rapid sweeps up to 200nm/s sweeps
  • 90dB/0.1nm Signal to Total Source Spontaneous Emission Ratio (SSSER)
  • +13dBm (20mw) peak output power
  • 0.3pm (Typ.) Wavelength Accuracy and guaranteed linewidth under 60 kHz allow for microscopic ranges
Fully Featured
  • Intuitive large-display touch screen for improved usability
  • Ethernet, USB and GP-IB control interfaces
  • LF and RF Modulation
  • Analog Control
  • Self-diagnosis feature uses internet connection for remote support.
  • SDK and extensive Software library
Seamless Integration
When combined with the santec MPM-200 multi-channel power meter and the PCU-100 polarization controller, the TSL-770 offers a turn-key PDL/WDL measurement solution that can greatly reduce cost and improve productivity in any production environment. Combining multiple TSL-770s and santec’s OSU-100 4x1 optical switch allows for wide range device characterization with continuous sweeps spanning the full 1250-1650nm range.
Release date: July 2017
Selling Price (at the time of this press release, taxes extra):  $55,000~
We are proud to announce that we will be showing the brand new TSL-770 at this year’s OFC2017 (The Optical Networking and Communication Conference & Exhibition), Booth 2414, Los Angeles Convention Center, March 21-23.
