RIO ORION Laser Source - A compact and turn-key benchtop laser source based on the industry-proven ORION™ laser module

The ORION™ Laser Source is based on the proven performance of RIO’s ORION™ product series. The ORION 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 ORION laser-based system provides exceptional value and ease-of-use with up to 20mW output power, very low RIN, ultra low phase noise and narrow linewidth, excellent wavelength stability and fast frequency tuning.

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

The ORION laser source is ideally position as the best ease-of-use system for a multiple of lab-orientated applications where absolute accuracy, stability, lifetime reliability and high resolution are vital, such as remote sensing, distributed temperature, strain, or acoustic fiber optic monitoring, LIDAR and other precision metrology applications.
