ASE Sources

Nano-Giga offers a complete low cost range of Spontaneous Amplified Emission (ASE) light sources for industry and research. ASE light sources exhibit excellent performance, including spectral and power stability. In addition, customers can choose among other things the shape of the flattened spectrum with GFF or not to better meet their needs. ASE light sources are high-bandwidth ultra-high power and stability sources designed for optical measurement and test applications. The product is based on doped fiber technology to produce amplified spontaneous emission.

The ASE light source covers a wide range of wavelengths, including the C, C + L-Band, and 1050nm band. The broad spectrum spectrum of the ASE light source is ideal for DWDM applications, characterization of systems and components, and use in fiber sensor monitoring sytems.

ASE Source C band

Discription :

Amonics C-band ASE light source feature high output power, very wide spectral range and high stability against temperature change. Amonics’ C-band ASE light source are available in benchtop or OEM module. In the benchtop unit, the output power, alarms and driving current values are shown on the LCD display. Output power can be adjusted by tuning the front panel control knob. Also active emission button is used to enhance operation safety. The OEM module version is an ideal building block for OEM system integrators, especially in fiber optic sensing and optical tomography applications. It requires only a single +5V power supply with low power consumption.
