RIO Grande™ Module

RIO GRANDE - A High Power Narrow Linewidth & Low Phase Noise Laser Module

RIO OPLLDownload Product Brief

The RIO Grande high power laser module builds upon the proven performance of RIO’s game-changing ORION™ product series. In addition to the ORION’s unrivaled reliability and robustness, along with the integration of a high performance and low noise EDFA, the RIO Grande laser modules provide superior value with up to 2W output power, very low RIN, ultra low phase noise and narrow linewidth, exceptional wavelength stability and insensitivity to vibration.

The RIO Grande’s packaging was designed with the customer’s need in mind: highly integrated, small form factor and self-contained module. This optical solution is positioned for reducing the development cycle time and allow for simple integration into advanced fiber optic sensing and LIDAR systems. External monitoring and control can be achieved via a RS-232 standard interface.

The RIO Grande’s higher output power, low noise and ultra narrow linewidth ideally position this semiconductor optical solution for multiple applications where absolute accuracy, lifetime reliability over demanding field conditions, and high resolution are vital, such as remote sensing, distributed temperature, strain, or acoustic fiber optic monitoring, high resolution spectroscopy, LIDAR and other precision metrology applications.
