SLD (Super-luminescent Diode)

SLD series
• High optical output power
• Wide spectral half width
• Built-in monitor photo diode

Superluminescent Diodes bridge the gap between Laser Diodes and Light Emitting Diodes.

Like an LD, the SLD provides a high optical output power. Anritsu's SLD feature broadband spectrum characteristics, typically found only in LEDs, and a low coherence. Our SLD features a low coherence length having a high intensity at a narrow radiation angle. This makes the SLD much easier to couple to a fiber for a broad range of applications. SLDs are ideal for Optical Coherence Tomography, fiber sensors such as temperature and strain gauges as well as applications in test and measurement instrumentation.
