Touchdown at 633 nm
DBR 633 nm laser diode family
February 01, 2013
Berlin/Germany, 01st February 2013: eagleyard Photonics, a leading supplier of high-power laser diodes,
introduces a new family of single frequency red laser diodes
With its new DBR*1 633 nm laser diode family, eagleyard Photonics expands its widely introduced Near-IR portfolio into the red.
Integrated within the high reliable TO package style, eagleyard’s new GaAs*2-based DBR laser is capable
of providing 10 mW @ 633 nm with a spectral linewidth of 750 kHz and below. The device is also available in
a 14-pin standard butterfly package with fiber pigtail and incorporates thermistor, thermo-electric cooler (TEC)
and a monitor diode. This proven design ensures a fiber-coupled output power of more than 5 mW.
“With our new products we are entering into a new era of single frequency laser diodes” says Michael Kneier,
VP Sales and Marketing at eagleyard. “The compact design in conjunction with its narrow linewidth performance,
opens new opportunities for eagleyard’s customers as more bulky and power consuming HeNe lasers can now be replaced with our
These lasers are commonly used for various scientific and industrial applications involving biological research,
spectral analysis, interferometry, metrology, sensing and a broad spectrum of other applications.
The product is perfectly suited as an OEM component with its dense small form factor.

eagleyard Photonics a privately held company headquartered in Berlin, Germany, has spun-off in 2002 from the
Ferdinand-Braun-Institut (FBH). Its core competence is the development, production and sales of innovative
high power laser diodes based on GaAs (Gallium Arsenide). Its portfolio contains DFB-lasers as well as tapered lasers ranging
from 633 nm to 1,180 nm. These laser diodes addressing a variety of applications such as space/aerospace, display technology,
medical instrumentation, test & measurement and material analysis. The strong demand for eagleyard’s products is continuously
contributing to a sustained company growth. eagleyard is represented in all relevant markets around the globe, in particular
in Europe, Asia and the Americas. For more information, please visit our website at
