EMCORE Introduces New LiDAR and Optical Sensing Products
The underlying technology for the Model 1790 has been in development for over 3 years and was designed to address demanding applications in industrial sensing and measurement. The 1790 achieves extremely narrow linewidths combined with a high-efficiency coupling scheme to enable high optical output power of 18 dBm, creating a compact, robust solution for FMCW sensing. Its monolithic design, combined with optimized coupling optics, makes it highly immune to the mode or optical frequency hopping typically found with single isolator, external cavity designs. EMCORE’s LiDAR laser technology maintains optical frequency stability over temperature, suppressing false readings caused by the mode or frequency hopping which is typical in conventional designs.
“We are extremely excited about the development of our laser technology for LiDAR and optical sensing and see it supporting a broad array of industrial applications beyond autonomous vehicles including materials characterization, strain measurement, terahertz-spectroscopy, interferometry, position and interference measurement, and other applications,” said
The Model 1790 laser module is DC-coupled with a built-in TEC (Thermo-Electric Cooler), thermistor and monitor photodiode. The device is packaged in a 14-pin, OC-48 pinout compatible hermetic butterfly form factor with double optical isolator mounted on the TEC. It has a wide operating temperature range from -10 °C to +65 °C and is
