- The SOA pulse driver allows the user to employ a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) to create a high speed, high dynamic range fiber optic modulator. It is a high performance alternative to an AOM or an EOM fiber modulator.
- HOW IT WORKS: A CW laser diode source (customer supplied) is used as the input to the SOA. The SOA (customer supplied) is mounted in the SOA-PULSE unit. When the bias current driving the SOA is switched ON/OFF in a high repetition rate pulsed mode, the result is a fiber optic modulator which offers multiple advantages over traditional modulator technologies.

Using an SOA-PULSE Unit to Create a High Performance Fiber Optic Modulator:
The SOA pulse driver allows the user to employ a semiconductor optical amplifier to create a high speed, high dynamic range fiber optic modulator. It is a high performance alternative to an AOM or an EOM fiber modulator.A CW laser diode is used as the input to the SOA. When the bias current driving the SOA is switched ON/OFF in a pulsed mode (with adjustable speed up to > 1 GHz), the result is a fiber optic modulator which offers multiple advantages over traditional modulator technologies. These units can be configured for wavelengths from 750 nm to 1700 nm. It is a lossless, high extinction ratio and highly polarized modulator solution.
The "SOM" Semiconductor Optical Modulator:
When configured with a CW laser diode input and with and an SOA installed in the pulser, the user creates an "SOM". SOM stands for semiconductor optical modulator. Here are a few of the many advantages an SOM offers relative to an AOM, EOM or directly pulsed laser diode solution:
