Coronado – Fiber Optical Amplifiers for all Needs

The Coronado series is a range of compact erbium-fiber optical amplifiers that provide broadband gain over the C-band (1530 to 1565 nm) in both benchtop (AMP) and OEM module (AMP-M) platforms.

The benchtop series (AMP) features a portable design and a user-friendly front panel control interface for adjustment of the amplifier gain. The systems have been optimized for amplification of short optical pulses (such as those provided from Calmar’s Mendocino series) and offer high gain and low noise with long term dependable performance. Fiber pigtail connections provide convenient input/output coupling with either polarization maintaining (PM) or non-PM options.

The OEM module series (AMP-M) has been optimized for amplification of short optical pulses (such as those provided from Calmar’s Mendocino series) and offer high gain and low noise with long term dependable performance. Convenient input/output fiber pigtail connections provide either polarization-maintaining (PM) or non-PM options. Similar to the Mendocino OEM modules (FPL-M), the Coronado (AMP-M) series features a robust all-fiber architecture and requires a 5 V DC power supply for simple integration into OEM systems.

Product Wavelength (nm) Output Power Range (dBm) Polarization Form Factor
AMP-PMXM1 1530 - 1565 15 - 23 Linear OEM module
AMP-STXM1 1530 - 1565 15 - 23 Random OEM module
AMP-PMY2 1530 - 1565 18 - 37 Linear Bench top
AMP-STY2 1530 - 1565 18 - 37 Random Bench top

1 X = 15, 18, 20, or 23 is the output in dBm and needs to be specified at the time of purchase.

2 Y = 18, 23, 30 or 37 is the output in dBm and needs to be specified at the time of purchase.

(Due to our continuous improvement program, specifications are subject to change without notice).

"Calmar's products have continued to perform well, even after several years, and are much lower maintenance than our other mode-locked lasers"
