Pump lasers for Bismuth Doped Fiber Amplifiers (BDFA)

Pump lasers for BDFA in our product portfolio!

Exciting news from Innolume! The company launched the production of pump lasers for Bismuth Doped Fiber Amplifiers (BDFA) with an impressive power output of 500mW. These cutting-edge lasers operate at a wavelength of 1190 nm and are based on Innolume’s GaAs quantum dot technology, which offers exceptional reliability and power levels.

BDFA technology has been around since the 2000s, but it’s only recently become practical thanks to the availability of cost-efficient Bismuth doped fiber and high-power quantum dot pump lasers offered by Innolume. BDFAs have the potential to significantly extend the reach of O band transmission to 80km spans, which could replace C band fiber links with O band links. This is great news for companies looking to increase the bandwidth of their existing fiber links.
