Koheras BASIK MIKRO compact low noise single-frequency OEM lasers

The Koheras BASIK MIKRO is the smallest industrial single frequency fiber laser on the market. Designed for OEM integration in industrial sensing systems like DAS and vibrometry, it features unrivaled reliability and a robust design. The module includes fully integrated laser control electronics and continuous monitoring of the laser performance. Based on a truly single mode DFB fiber laser architecture, it offers ultra stable performance free of mode-hops.
With thousands of lasers installed in DAS systems worldwide, the Koheras MIKRO sets the standard for performance and reliability in high performance sensing applications.

The standard wavelength is 1550 nm and the MIKRO is available with output wavelength anywhere in the 1535 to 1580 nm range. Moreover, the laser offers a wide thermal wavelength tuning range and can be combined with fast wavelength modulation e.g. for external stabilization.

The lasers are available with PM (Polarisation Maintaining) or non-PM output.

For easy control, the MIKRO is available with an optional USB interface kit and can be controlled via our NKTP CONTROL graphical user interface.
