RIO ORION™ Narrow Linewidth Laser Module

LASER COMPONENTS offers the RIO ORION™ laser module which has ultra-low phase noise and narrow linewidth, exceptional wavelength stability, very low RIN, and up to 20mW output power.  

With unrivalled reliability (Telcordia GR-486 qualified) and robustness the ORION builds upon the proven performance of RIO’s game-changing PLANEX™ product series.

The ORION’s packaging was designed with the customer’s need in mind:  highly integrated, small form factor and self-contained module.

This optical solution is positioned for reducing the development cycle time and allow for simple integration into advanced fibre optic sensing systems.  

External monitoring and control can be achieved via SPI, RS-232 or RS-485 standard interfaces.

The ORION’s higher output power, low noise and ultra-narrow linewidth ideally position this semiconductor optical solution for multiple applications where absolute accuracy, lifetime reliability over demanding field conditions, and high resolution are vital, such as remote sensing, distributed temperature, strain, or acoustic fibre optic monitoring, high resolution spectroscopy, LIDAR and other precision metrology applications.
