Chilas To Reveal New External Cavity Laser


Chilas B.V. has announced that it will reveal its new external cavity laser (ECL) during a new product launch event set for 7 September 2021, from 4:00 to 5:00 PM CEST (Europe). The launch will be held online with the support of the European Photonics Industry Consortium (EPIC). To attend the live event, register by following this link: https://www.epic-assoc.com/chilas-new-product-launch/ .

The new Chilas laser is designed for any application with demanding light source requirements; attend Chilas' new product launch event and be among the first to discover the possibilities the company's lasers can offer that include extremely low loss SiN durability, high Q-factor, and ultra-narrow linewidth.

Chilas produces semiconductor external cavity tuneable lasers with ultra-narrow linewidth. ‎Its products ‎can be continuously tuned over the C-band covering a wavelength range ‎larger than 100 nm. Chilas lasers also offer a very narrow

‎linewidth of a few kilohertz. These lasers are made using ‎hybrid technology that integrates InP and ‎SiN, two of the leading platforms for ‎fabricating PIC light sources and related PIC building blocks. This extremely low loss ‎SiN technology allows Chilas to make cavities with ‎very high Q-factors BS ultra-narrow linewidth.‎ ‎

“The unique combination of ultra-narrow linewidth and continuous tunability over a wide ‎frequency range in a compact footprint makes our lasers ideal for a wide range of applications ‎such as coherent optical communications, fiber sensing, and microwave photonics,” states Sami Musa, CEO at Chilas B.V.

The new external cavity laser (ECL) has a unique set of characteristics that make this robust and compact laser module a workhorse for a large variety of applications.

• The ultra-narrow linewidth ‎(<5 kHz)‎, low phase noise, compact footprint and robust character of the Chilas laser will enable greater sensitivity within your metrology applications such as optical fiber sensors that need to operate in harsh environments.

• The possibility of high output power, low RIN (≤ -150 dB/Hz) and low phase noise of the laser will help future-proof your transceiver by enabling it to meet novel standards for small channel spacing while enabling advanced modulation methods (PAM, PSK,QAM, etc.)

• Boost resolution in Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) applications to microscopic levels by exploiting the full > 100 nm bandwidth of Chilas' lasers.
