   THORLABS CLD1015   Description / Specification:    
THORLABS CLD1015 1.5A Laser Diode and Temperature Controller

The Thorlabs CLD1015 Laser Diode and Temperature Controller is a complete driver package designed to drive and cool pigtailed butterfly laser diodes. It contains a built-in mount for portability and mechanical stability. The CLD1015 accepts fiber-coupled lasers, superluminescent diodes, and laser amplifiers in both type 1 and type 2 butterfly packages. It supplies up to 1.5 A of drive current, making it compatible with Thorlabs' entire family of pigtailed butterfly diode lasers. This all-in-one unit provides a high degree of output stability and maintains the diode temperature with 0.005 °C of stability over 24 hours, prolonging the life of the diode. In addition to a full complement of safety features, such as a soft start mode, current and temperature limits, and external interlock compatibility, the CLD1015 laser diode driver includes a switchable noise reduction filter and a modulation input.

Chromatic Dispersion
Chromatic Dispersion is a broadening of the input signal as it travels down the length of the fiber. Chromatic Dispersion results from a variation in propagation delay with wavelength, and is affected by fiber materials and dimensions.

A Detector is a signal conversion device that converts power from one form to another, such as from optical power to electrical power

Jitter in technical terms is the deviation in or displacement of some aspect of the pulses in a high-frequency digital signal. Jitter is the time variation of a periodic signal in electronics and telecommunications, often in relation to a reference clock source. Jitter may be observed in characteristics such as the frequency of successive pulses, the signal amplitude, or phase of periodic signals. Jitter is a significant, and usually undesired, factor in the design of almost all communications links (e.g., USB, PCI-e, SATA, OC-48). In clock recovery applications it is called timing jitter.

Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD)
Polarization mode dispersion (PMD) is a form of modal dispersion where two different polarizations of light in a waveguide, which normally travel at the same speed, travel at different speeds due to random imperfections and asymmetries, causing random spreading of optical pulses. It is he difference between the maximum and minimum values of loss typically measured in ps/km^1/2.
