ILX LIGHTWAVE LDX-3545B 1/3 A Laser Diode Driver

The ILX Lightwave LDX-3545B Laser Diode Driver is a low noise high stability current source specifically for precision control of low to high power laser diodes. It has a full scale output 3000 mA current range that operates in constant current or constant optical power modes to cover a wide range of laser diode testing and control applications. In addition to precision current control, the LDX-3545B driver also features photodiode current measurement for constant power control, analog modulation for power and wavelength tuning, and an analog output for remote monitoring.

Amplified Spontaneous Emission Source (ASE)
ASE, a process where spontaneously emitted radiation (luminescence) is amplified. In lasers and particularly in high-gain erbium-doped amplifiers, amplified spontaneous emission is usually an unwanted effect. It tends to limit the gain achievable in a single stage of a fiber optic amplifier to the order of 40–50 dB.

Dynamic Range
In a transmission system, the ratio of the overload level to the noise level of the system, usually expressed in dB. Ratio of the highest to lowest detectable signal of a system, expressed in dB.

Optical Power
Optical Power is usually measured in "dBm", or decibels referenced to one miliwatt of power. while loss is a relative reading, optical power is an absolute measurement, referenced to standards. You measure absolute power to test transmitters or receivers and relative power to test loss.

Relative Wavelength Accuracy
When randomly changing the wavelength and measuring the differences between the actual and displayed wavelengths, the relative wavelength accuracy is ± half the span between the maximum and the minimum value of all differences.

Wavelength is a term for the color of light, usually expressed in nanometers (nm) or microns (m). In Fiber Optics the wavelenghts mostly used are in the infrared region where the light is invisible to the human eye.
