THE BROAD SPECTRUM TUNABLE, SUPERLUMINESCENT DIODE LIGHT SOURCE BY LUXMUX

The BeST-SLED® is the LUXMUX original - a rugged, compact broadband light source in the near infrared wavelength range. It offers spectral coverage from 1230nm to 1730nm with up to 50mW of optical power.

The BeST-SLED® is comprised of a set of superluminescent diodes and driver circuit with overlapping spectral coverage into a 32 pin butterfly package. This module can be sold separately, and directly integrated into existing OEM products.

  • Superluminescent diodes, low coherence length

  • Reliable and stable over the entire spectral range

  • Compact: up to 6 SLEDs from 740nm to 1720nm in one 32-pin Butterfly Package

  • 40 mW of optical power with a single mode fiber

  • Broad Spectrum

  • FWHM up to 480nm

  • Widely tunable and flexible

  • Cost-effective / High value

  • Rugged and durable

The BeST-SLED has worked very well. We needed a low coherence device with good spectral power and we are now using both the 1480nm and 1545nm sources. We are running a novel interferometer architecture where we leverage the low coherence of the SLED.
