DBR Laser Superior Performance and Reliability

Product Announcement from Photodigm, Inc.

DBR Laser Superior Performance and Reliability -Image

High-Power, Spectroscopy-Certified Laser Diodes For Precision Applications

The Photodigm family of high-power edge-emitting Distributed Bragg Reflector (DBR) lasers is based on Photodigm's proprietary architecture. The DBR laser diode is uniquely suited for applications requiring high-power single-frequency performance within a well-defined operating range. Compared to the competing DFB laser, the DBR laser architecture offers superior performance and reliability for applications requiring deterministic wavelength behavior.
