Overview

Moonstone

The MoonstoneTM is a small-footprint, high-power, single or multi-wavelength optical source. Moonstone is used as the light source solution for all Lightelligence products (i.e., oMAC, oNET, oNOC).


Moonstone is a competitively-priced laser source with up to 8 multiple wavelengths, high laser output power, and low-power consumption, in addition to having excellent optical coupling and thermal control.

The Moonstone is fabricated using an automation optical packaging assembly process. Off-the-shelf laser chips (with single or multi-wavelengths) were mounted on the carrier and submount using eutectic soldering and die-bonding techniques. The laser chips are connected to the FPC through wire bonding. In the single-wavelength scenario, free-space coupling is employed using lens to focus the laser light into fiber. In the multi-wavelength scenario, laser light is colllimated into MUX which acts as a beam combiner, and then focused into a single fiber. A TEC is placed underneath to control the temperature of the laser with the aid of thermistor. The base and submount are both materials that have matchable heat conductivity. The Moonstone has standard MT ferrule and FPC connector as optical and electrical interfaces, respectively.
