Ultra-Narrow Linewidth Integrated CW Tunable Laser at 1310 nm
Proudly introducing the new addition to our lineup of high-precision integrated tunable lasers— Sivers-powered and Chilas-tested! This highly sought-after laser operates at 1310 nm in O-band and addresses tele- and datacom needs that our 1550 nm laser doesn’t cover. As industry discussions and market demands increase on O-band solutions, our laser emerges as the answer. Its compact design and stable alignment could be a perfect fit for OEMs, advanced laboratories, and industrial sensor manufacturers and be an ideal match for applications in optical communications, LiDAR and molecular analysis systems.
Powerful and Efficient
During the null series testing, this continuous wave laser showed an impressive tuning range of 25 nm, spanning from 1298 nm to 1325 nm, achieving a maximum output of 2.5 dBm at 240 mA. Its sidemode suppression ratio was measured at 40 dB, a standard in our range of tunable lasers. The spot size converters implemented on our waveguides ensure that the interfaces preserve the low losses of our platform, whether chip-to-chip or chip-to-fiber.
The semiconductor amplifier, developed by Sivers Photonics, delivers an efficient electrical pump in an an 800 μm long chip. The silicon nitride laser mirror chip utilizes LioniX’s proprietary TriPleX® waveguide technology to establish a high-Q external cavity. Equipped with microring resonators and tuners for phase and wavelength adjustments, all driven by integrated heaters without additional optical losses.

The laser comes in a 14-pin butterfly package with a TEC for long-term operational stability. LioniX International provides a feature-complete laser driver box, developed in-house, for immediate characterization and testing. To enable users to fully leverage integrated photonics advantages, LioniX also offers design and fabrication services for a complete photonic integrated circuit (PIC) on the same external cavity chip. The laser photonic IC can be customized to include various functionalities such as filters, switches, delay lines, and sensing windows tailored for your unique applications.
