Why choose nanoplus SLDs
We used our expertise in DFB technology and various semiconductor materials to create broadband light sources in the NIR. These devices combine the proven beam quality of nanoplus lasers with the broad spectrum of LEDs.
Quick description of nanoplus SLD technology
nanoplus SLD are specially designed and characterized to fit your requirements. For more than 20 years, nanoplus has been manufacturing DFB and FP lasers with excellent performance: the same technology is used for our SLDs which we offer at any wavelength between 760 nm and 2900 nm.
