1060-nm Ultrafast Optical Clocks

In response to customer requests, PriTel
announces the 1.06 μm UOC.  This high
performance unit provides short pulses for telecom
research and low jitter pulses for a variety of
research applications.

PriTel’s UOC Series of Ultrafast Optical Clocks are easy-
to-use actively-mode-locked fiber lasers that provide high
pulse-repetition frequencies and high average output
powers for 1.06 μm time-division-multiplexed
communications R&D.

An internal micro-computer monitors the optical pulses
and maintains mode-locking.  After initial setup, the UOC
requires no supervision.

One research application using this laser is reported in the
OFC/NFOEC 2006 Post Deadline Paper "10 GHz 0.5 ps Pulse
Generation in 1000 nm Band in PCF for High Speed Optical
Communication" by K. Kurokawa, K. Tajima, and K. Nakajima
of NTT Corporation.
