POET Technologies’ DenseLight Sub Introduces Advanced Digital Control for its Popular Integrated Light Module for Wind LIDAR

February 5th, 2019

Enhanced Integrated Light Module (ILM) for high-performance applications

San Jose, Calif., February 5, 2019 – POET Technologies Inc. (“POET”) (OTCQX: POETF; TSX Venture: PTK) and its wholly-owned subsidiary DenseLight Semiconductor today announced that samples of its new, advanced Integrated Light Module (ILM), designed specifically for high-performance wind LIDAR and other environmentally-stressed applications, will be available to customers in April in limited quantities. Because of expected high customer demand for this product, the DL-BF9D will be on allocation beginning immediately.  Company representatives will be taking initial sample orders for the unit at the SPIE Photonics West exhibition which is being held at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco from February 5th to 7th, 2019.

The DL-BF9D digital version has enhanced features and is a member of the popular “Constellation“ series of ILM’s, offering lower Relative Intensity Noise (RIN) and phase noise performance as well as improved linewidth stability performance compared to similar modules from other suppliers.  

The DL-BF9D ILM is well suited for a wide range of communications and sensing applications where noise performance and linewidth stability are critical, such as and Wind LIDAR and other Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) applications.

Key Features

  • Tuneable Optical Power
  • Operating temperature (chassis) from 0°C to 50°C
  • RIN < -150dB/Hz (< -160dB/Hz 10-50Mhz)
  • Low Phase noise
  • Linewidth, typical 10Khz
  • Mode-hop free operation over temperature
  • SMSR > 45dB
  • Digital control interface via USB

For those customers with an immediate requirement, the Company is offering quantities of its DL-DFB9C ILM.  The DL-DFB9C offers the same enhanced performance with Analog control at a more affordable price.

DenseLight Semiconductors is exhibiting its suite of standard components for Data Communications and Sensing applications at SPIE Photonics West in San Francisco, from February 5th to 7th in booth 4085.
