Compact Amplified Spontaneous Emission (ASE) Source

Lightwaves2020 offers a full range of industry leading, low cost Amplified Spontaneous Emission (ASE) light sources. Using proprietary EDFA technology, Lightwaves2020's compact ASE sources provide up to 10 dBm output power across the C-band. And the devices are extremely compact, making them ideal for applications that require a built-in compact broadband light source

Lightwaves2020 compact ASE light sources exhibit excellent performance, including spectral and power stability. In addition, customers can choose between a standard or flattened spectrum output to best meet their application requirements. The ASEs are normally shipped with a standard RS232 or I2C electrical interface, although customized interface designs are also available. Lightwaves2020's low-cost, compact ASE sources have passed Telcordia GR1312 tests.
