Yenista Optics, a leading manufacturer of fiber optic test and measurement equipment will launch a new family of High Power Tunable Lasers, TUNICS T100S-HP/CL at OFC 2013 on March 19-21, in Anaheim, USA. The products will be showcased at booth #2825.
The complete portfolio of the T100S-HP now features 6 tunable lasers. They have been explicitly named after the wavelength tuning bands that are covered:
The /O and /CL lasers have 10 dBm minimum output power and are dedicated to the main telecom applications. The /O+, /ES, /SCL and /CLU lasers have 8 dBm minimum output power and the largest wavelength ranges available on the market, making it possible to cover the full telecom wavelength band from 1240 to 1700 nm at 8 dBm with just 3 lasers! This is done by combining the /O+, /ES and /CLU lasers.
“We managed to implement important innovations that enabled us to extend the wavelength range and to increase the output power without any compromise on other specifications of the T100S” said Michiel van der Keur, Yenista’s CEO. “With the TUNICS T100S-HP portfolio, we offer the most advanced and cost effective solution for all R&D and Manufacturing environments”.
The /O and /CL models are available whereas the /O+, /ES, /SCL and /CLU lasers start shipping in May.
Yenista will also showcase its leading test and measurement equipment at several exhibitions this Spring: FOE in Tokyo, Japan from April 10-12 and Photonics in Switching in Kyoto, Japan from June 30-July 4.
Yenista Optics, a leading manufacturer of fiber optic test and measurement equipment will introduce a new High Power tunable laser, the TUNICS T100S-HP/CL, and new tunable filters with wide bandwidth adjustment ranges, the XTM-50/W and XTA-50/W, at ECOC 2012 on September 17-19, in Amsterdam. The products will be showcased in live demos at booth #424.
The TUNICS T100S-HP/CL laser provides an output power of at least 10 dBm over the whole tuning range from 1500 to 1630 nm. It guarantees a signal to source spontaneous emission ratio (SSSER) higher than 90 dB. Important innovations in the laser’s external cavity design have been implemented, enabling significant increase in the output power and stability without any compromise on other specifications.
Yenista’s XT-type flat-top optical tunable filter range also welcomes new members with the Wide bandwidth option: XTM-50/W and XTA-50/W (where “W” stands for “wide”). This option increases the maximum achievable bandwidth to 3 nm. It offers bandwidth adjustability from 50 pm (6.25 GHz) to 3000 pm (375 GHz) with very sharp filter edges (500 dB/nm). The filters cover the 1520 to 1570 nm wavelength range and have an insertion loss of less than 5 dB in combination with a top flatness of 0.2 dB.
Yenista Optics XT-type filter range already includes a Standard version with a bandwidth of 50 pm – 800 pm covering the spectral range 1450 – 1650 nm, and an Ultrafine version allowing a bandwidth of 32 pm – 650 pm with very steep edges of 800 dB/nm.
Yenista will also showcase its leading test and measurement equipment at several exhibitions this autumn: AVFOP in Cocoa Beach, Florida, USA from September 11-13 and ILOPE in Beijing, China from October 16-18.
Yenista Optics, a leading manufacturer of fiber optic test and measurement equipment has added the PMF option on its manual optical tunable bandpass filter, the WSM-160 BP. This option offers an optimized wavelength range over the C-band from 1525 nm to 1570 nm and passband adjustment from 0.25 to 45 nm.
The standard WSM-160 was designed to enable engineers to extract channels with low insertion loss and no signal distortion thanks to its flat-top shape. It is particularly well suited for studying new modulation formats, cascaded ROADMs, high bit rate transmission, pulse shaping, and optical parametric amplification. The PMF option addresses specific needs in new modulation formats where polarization multiplexing is utilized.
This new option is an advanced feature in Yenista Optics’ already very broad range of benchtop tunable filters. Yenista will showcase its filters along with its leading products at several exhibitions this summer: at ICTON in Coventry, United Kingdom from July 2-5; at CIOE in Shenzhen, China from September 6-9; and at ECOC in Amsterdam, Netherlands from September 17-19.
Yenista Optics, a leading manufacturer of fiber optic test and measurement equipment today releases an ultrafine option for its flat-top optical tunable filters, XTM-50/U and XTA-50/U. This option reduces the minimum bandwidth to a market-leading 32 pm or 4 GHz at 1550 nm.
In the development of next generation 100 Gb/s transmission systems, the need for extremely narrow tunable filters has emerged to investigate new modulation formats and their sub-bands. Yenista’s ultrafine option perfectly meets this requirement by providing a higher selectivity to its XT range of filters. The option offers bandwidth adjustability from 32 pm (4 GHz) to 650 pm (80 GHz) and edges of 800 dB/nm - the steepest available on the market! In the standard version, these values are of 50-800 pm and 500 dB/nm respectively. The filters operate in the 1480 to 1620 nm wavelength range and have very low dispersion and loss characteristics.
David Heard, Yenista Optics’ Sales and Marketing Manager for North America says: "Yenista’s filters are designed for the most demanding applications. The high isolation and wide wavelength range surpass all their competitors. Our XT filters are widely respected, particularly, in the telecoms market, and the new ultra-narrow filter will meet the needs of engineers developing new transmission technologies and modulation formats such as OFDM." The filters along with the whole range of Yenista Optics’ test equipment will be showcased from Jan. 24th to 26th 2012 at Photonics West, booth number 4022, in San Francisco, California, USA.
Yenista Optics S.A., a leading manufacturer of fiber optic test and measurement equipment, is proud to announce the establishment of Yenista Optics Inc. and the opening of its US office in Princeton, New Jersey, USA, on the first of October 2011. The office includes a Repair & Calibration Laboratory.
Yenista is well respected for its Tunable Laser and Tunable Filter products. The filters have the most advanced specifications on the market whereas the reliable TUNICS tunable lasers originally date back to Photonetics (later Nettest and Anritsu). The office will provide both pre- and post-sales support to its North American customers including full repair and calibration services. In addition, it will provide repair and calibration services for the large installed base of TUNICS and OSICS products manufactured in the past by Photonetics, Nettest and Anritsu. Fast turn-around times will be ensured thanks to the large stock of original replacement parts.
Yenista’s CEO Michiel van der Keur commented, "We have successfully introduced Yenista’s products on the North-American market through a partnership with JGR Services. The past two years were fundamental in promoting our portfolio and creating brand awareness. Establishing the US office will build on this foundation to provide enhanced support and services to our US customers. For the Canadian market, we will continue our partnership with JGR Services".
Yenista Optics, a leading manufacturer of fiber optic test and measurement equipment, has further expanded its multi-channel OSICS platform with a new Variable Back Reflector module. The "OSICS BKR" module provides a controllable back reflection of up to 55dB over the 1250 nm to 1650 nm wavelength range.
Back reflection or return loss is an intrinsic parameter in all optical systems which occurs as a result of Rayleigh scattering in optical fibers and due to the mismatch of refractive indices within optical components. Poor or open connectors are also significant contributors. Managing return loss and testing components and systems under a range of operating conditions is an important part of system design and validation. The "OSICS BKR" provides a simple solution. Further, it can be integrated with other test instruments such as light sources, optical switches and variable attenuators as part of the multi-channel OSICS platform. The modules can be controlled either manually or via the GPIB and RS-232 interfaces.
David Heard, Sales and Marketing Manager commented, "The OSICS platform is widely used throughout the fiber optics industry. Adding additional modules provides our customers with a cost effective upgrade without changing the platform and control software with which they are familiar. The module is particularly useful to stress transceivers for return loss sensitivity measurements and for PON system testing where open connectors are an issue."
Yenista Optics, a leading manufacturer of fiber optic test and measurement equipment, announces the release of a new tunable laser in the 1310 nm wavelength region. The T100 model uses a new optical cavity design to provide high optical power (+6 dBm) with extremely low noise (>80 dB/0.1 nm SSER).
The combination of high power and low noise output has not been possible with conventional tunable laser designs. Yenista is the first company to overcome this limitation with its patented self-filtered external cavity laser technology. The technology is used in its TUNICS T100 models. The new O-band version operates from 1270 nm to 1340 nm with up to +6 dBm output power and a signal to spontaneous emission ratio (SSER) of over 80 dB/0.1 nm. The laser is particularly suitable for characterizing narrow bandwidth filters and as a light source for testing high speed transmission systems.
"The original or O-band, operating around 1310 nm, has been widely used for short reach telecom applications. It corresponds to the low dispersion region of standard single mode fiber but is limited to non-amplified links by the lack of optical amplifiers. With the demand for higher capacity in access and data networks there is now a resurgence of interest in this wavelength band" said Nicéphore Nicolas, Yenista’s Sales and Marketing Manager. "Engineers developing and testing components for the latest 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet and FTTH/PON networks really benefit from the performance of Yenista’s TUNICS T100 lasers."
Yenista will be demonstrating the TUNICS T100 lasers at the upcoming OFC/NFOEC exhibition at the Los Angeles Convention Center, March 8-10, booth 1113.
