RIO Colorado™ Tunable Laser Source

A compact and turn-key benchtop laser source based on
industry-proven External Cavity Lasers

RIO OPLLDownload Product Brief

The new RIO Colorado™ Tunable Laser Source is an impressive feature-rich extension of RIO’s game-changing ORION™ and PLANEX™ product series. The RIO Colorado laser source is designed with the customer’s need in mind: user-friendly, highly integrated and turn-key operation.

In addition to unrivaled reliability and performance, the RIO Colorado laser source laser-based provides exceptional value and ease-of-use with 20mW output power, wide wavelength tunability, C- or L-band wavelength options, very low RIN, low phase noise and narrow linewidth, very fast frequency and amplitude modulation.

This solution is positioned for reducing the development cycle time and allow for simple integration into R&D lab environments, coherent communication architectures and advanced fiber optic sensing systems. External monitoring and control can be achieved via a Graphical User Interface (GUI) and a USB connection.
