DFB/FP Picosecond Laser (370-1550nm)

ID 3000 Series – Picosecond Lasers

The ID 3000 Series is a cost-effective solution offering high-quality picosecond-pulsed laser light under long-term and maintenance-free operation. Both free space and fibre-coupled versions are available to handle virtually any optical application. An ID 3000 Series laser can be used with IDQ single-photon detectors and Time Controller Series to enrich a range of high-speed and highsensitivity time-correlated single-photon counting (TCSPC) applications, from quantum photonics and quantum information, super-resolution microscopy, time-resolved spectroscopy, to the field-testing of optical fibres. Use the ID 3000 Series Picosecond Laser to enhance your experiments today.


These lasers are based on high-reliability semiconductor laser diodes operated in gain-switched mode, emitting laser pulses typically shorter than 30 ps across a broad segment of the electromagnetic spectrum (UV to telecom C-band, 375 nm to 1550 nm). Each ID 3000 laser source operates as a laser head working in tandem with a laser controller, where multiple laser heads can be interchanged with a single controller. The laser head is pre-tuned to a particular wavelength (see Table 1), and can be operated out-of-the-box within minutes through the controller’s user-friendly interface. The on-demand picosecond pulses of the laser head — combined with the ultra-low timing jitter of the ID3000’s laser controller — allow for unparalleled precision and control in your experimental setup within such a compact device

- Remote operation available via RS-232 or USB 2.0 

  connection

- Maintenance-free 24/7 operation 

- Free space or fibre-coupled laser emission

- In-stock models: 1550 nm and 1310 nm sources 

- Available wavelengths: 375 nm to 1550 nm




New:

- Even shorter laser pulses, on demand 

- Available in a range of wavelengths, from UV to the telecom C-band


Applications:

- QKD and quantum communication 

- Quantum computing and quantum optics 

- TCSPC, photoluminescence and spectroscopy 

- Fluorescence Lifetime IMaging (FLIM) 

- Single-photon detector characterization 

- Optical Time Domain Reflectometry (OTDR) 

- Light Detection And Ranging (LIDAR)


Ultra-Low Jitter

- The ID 3000’s timing jitter is ultra-low: typically lower than 4 ps 

- This ultra-low measured jitter is only an upper limit of the timing jitter, as it includes jitter contributions from the measuring electronics 

- Pulse-tuning mode minimizes the effects of after- pulsing


Versitile Design

- Pulse-on-demand operation up to 

- 40 MHz Remote operation: you can control via RS-232 or 

  USB 2.0 connection 

- Robust design: functions maintenance-free under 24/7 

  industrial operation


Ultrafast Laser Pulses

The gain-switched operation of the semiconductor laser diode allows 

emission of ultrafast optical pulses from 20 to 110 ps pulse width with 

ultra-low timing jitter.
