Fiber coupled low coherence laser sources

Series 51nano
by Anja Knigge, Michael Schulz, Christian Knothe and Ulrich Oechsner

The fiber coupled laser source series 51nano is a low coherence laser source coupled to a singlemode or singlemode polarization-maintaning fiber cable. Special features inlude low coherence as well as low power noise and as a result often unwanted intereferences can be oppressed. It is often used as a laser for high precision position measurement or as a pilot laser during alignment tasks. Other applications include Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) or back-reflection particle measurement. [more]
