Iolon Apollo Widely Tunable Laser:

The iolon Apollo is a high performance continuous wave laser for advanced optical networking systems. Capable of providing 10 mW and 20 mW output power over the C or L bands, the Apollo?delivers high power, spectral fidelity, and wide tunability for intelligent optical networking. The Apollo?module contains a miniaturized external cavity laser that incorporates iolon's patented MEMS and micro-technology with best-in-class qualified optical components. The device uses serial communication for fast, reliable, and easy operation. The laser and all control electronics are contained in a small footprint package (70mm x 50mm x 13mm) with a polarization maintaining fiber for coupling with an external modulator.

The Apollo is Telcordia qualified, currently deployed in networks carrying live traffic, and is available in volume.
