1550 MEMS-VCSEL at OFC 2014

At OFC 2014, the Optical Fiber Communications conference in San Fransisco, Praevium demonstrated their new 1550nm MEMS-VCSEL tunable laser.  Similar to the 1050nm & 1310nm versions, this MEMS-Tunable VCSEL has the widest tuning range for this type of laser, at 170 nm, and tunes at hundreds of kilohertz.  Come to the Thorlabs Booth in North Hall to see a live demo running with the new laser source.
