The 1310 ±10nm Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) is packaged in compact coaxial housing with single mode fiber pigtail. VCSEL-1310-SM is designed for fiber sensing, laser transmitter and optical communication applications. It requires very low drive current and can be temperature stabilized with built-in TEC.
● Low dependence of electrical and optical characteristics over temperature
● Data rates from OC-3 to OC-48
● Lower Power Consumption

Safety and Operating Considerations
This device operates under reverse bias voltage, and the polarity of the device can't be reversed.
Operating the Photodiode outside of its maximum ratings may cause device failure or a safety hazard. Power supplies used with this component cannot exceed maximum peak optical power.
ESD PROTECTION—Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is the primary cause of unexpected laser diode failure. Take extreme precaution to prevent ESD. Use wrist straps, grounded work surfaces, and rigorous antistatic techniques when handling Photodiodes.
