Laser drivers from Wavelength Electronics are used around the world, providing low-noise current for high performance laser systems. Noisy drivers can mask optical and mechanical noise. Cleaning up the electronics can lead to discoveries and significantly improved systems. Our most recent case study, CS-LD01: Lower Electronic Noise Enhances Atmospheric Gas Sensing, highlights researchers at Aerodyne Research, Inc. who excel in developing high-precision atmospheric trace gas measurement instruments. The instruments based around quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) have greatly improved precision, thanks in part to the use of Wavelength Electronics QCL drivers. Read more here.

The June issue of Laser Focus World includes a featured article from Wavelength Electronics. The article, titled Using a laser diode or quantum cascade laser? Don’t forget the electronics, goes into detail about how the electronics in the laser driver can impact laser diode and quantum cascade laser performance, safety features to keep in mind when selecting a driver, and important driver specifications.
