Innolume GmbH Introduces Breakthrough Bismuth Doped Fiber Amplifier (BDFA) for Enhanced Optical Communication

Dortmund, Germany – March 21, 2024 – Innolume GmbH, a pioneer in laser diode technology, proudly announces the launch of its latest innovation, the Bismuth Doped Fiber Amplifier (BDFA), designed to revolutionize O-band optical communication networks.

The BDFA from Innolume is engineered to deliver exceptional performance, catering to the growing demands of high-speed data transmission and network expansion. With its cutting-edge features, the BDFA promises to extend the reach of O-band signals, effectively enhancing the bandwidth of existing fiber infrastructure.

Key Features of BDFA:
Small Signal Gain: Greater than 19dBm @ Pin=-20dBm
Saturated Output Power: Exceeding 16dBm @ Pin=0dBm
Central Wavelength: 1310nm
Gain Bandwidth: 60nm
Noise Figure: Less than 6dB
Package: Modified MSA (Multi-Source Agreement) compliant

The BDFA is set to empower various applications including DCI interconnect, Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs), Passive Optical Networks (PONs), and Private Wide Area Networks (PWANs), enabling seamless integration and enhanced performance across diverse network architectures.

This groundbreaking achievement is made possible by leveraging high-power GaAs Quantum Dot pump laser technology with a wavelength of 1195nm and an impressive optical power of 700mW.
