   ILX LIGHTWAVE LDC-3908   Description / Specification:    
ILX LIGHTWAVE LDC-3908 8-Ch Modular Laser Diode Controller

The ILX Lightwave LDC-3908 Laser Diode Controller offers 8 channels of laser diode current source and temperature control in a space saving rack mountable instrument for simultaneous control of both current and temperature of up to 8 laser diodes in one mainframe. The high stability, low noise current and temperature controllers also make the 3908 suitable for low-channel count burn-in systems or, coupled with ILX’s 8-channel laser diode mount, a 8 channel DFB source bank. A wide variety of laser control modules are available including LAS/TEC controller, dual channel laser current source, and dual channel temperature control modules. Controller modules source up to 500mA, 1A, or 1.5A of laser current with an integrated 9W TEC controller. Dual laser current source modules, with two isolated outputs, source 500mA or 1A, while dual channel temperature control modules provide two independent 9W outputs. For controlling up to 16 higher power pump lasers, a single output 3A current source is available. Remote operation for independent control of all 16 channels is provided through an IEEE488 GPIB interface or RS-232 serial interface. Vacuum fluorescent, 64 x 128 pixels.

*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the ILX LIGHTWAVE LDC-3908. Price does not in most cases include measurement performance data. Pricing does include NIST traceable calibration and issue of a calibration certificate and calibration label. Pricing may vary slightly due to volume and location of laboratory supporting calibration. Volume pricing may apply. On-site fees may apply depending on logistics, location and volume of work to be completed during the visit.

Absolute Wavelength Accuracy
Absolute Wavelength Accuracy is the maximum difference between the actual wavelength and the displayed wavelength of the Optical Source. Wavelength is defined as wavelength in vacuum.

Decibel (dB)
A unit of measurement of optical power which indicates relative power. A -10 dB means a reduction in power by 10 times, -20 dB means another 10 times or 100 times overall, -30 means another 10 times or 1000 times overall and so on.

Nanometer (nm)
A unit of measure used to measure wavelength of light, meaning one one-billionth of a meter

Relative Intensity Noise (RIN)
Relative intensity noise (RIN), describes the instability in the power level of a laser. The noise term is important to describe lasers used in fiber-optic communication and LIDAR remote sensing. It is the square of the (spectrally resolved) RMS optical power amplitude divided by the measurement bandwidth and the square of the average optical power, expressed in dB/Hz.

Total Return loss
In an optical fiber, the loss that takes place at any discontinuity of refractive index, especially at an air-glass interface such as a fiber endface, at which a fraction of the optical signal is reflected back toward the source. RL = - 10log10 (Preflected/Preference)
