7 Sept. Chilas New Product Launch banner

About the Company

Chilas develops and supplies high-end semiconductor external cavity tuneable lasers with ultra-narrow ‎linewidth. The lasers can be continuously tuned over the C-band covering a wavelength range larger than ‎‎100 nm ‎and have a linewidth of < 5 KHz. Chilas lasers have a unique combination of characteristics ‎including ultra-narrow linewidth, broad and continuous wavelength tuning range, high output power and ‎low noise. The laser is temperature stabilized and comes in a 14-pins butterfly package. Chilas lasers can be ‎used in a number of applications such telecom and advanced optical sensing including fibre sensors and ‎LiDAR. ‎‎www.chilasbv.com

Presentation: HERE

Chilas lasers harvests the best of both InP and SiN worlds. The external cavity laser (ECL) is constructed by hybrid integration of both InP gainsection and SiN wavelength selective feedback PIC. The InP gainsection provides the high optical output power over a wide wavelength range, whereas the SiN PIC provides a low loss configurable feedback to the gainsection.

This combination results in a robust and compact laser module providing an unique set of laser characteristics:

  • Ultra narrow linewidths (< 5kHz) due to the High Q of the cavity.
  • Agile wavelength selection (> 100 nm) over the C-band, thanks to the configurable microring based vernier filter in the SiN PIC.
  • High output power (>30 mW, 100 mW under development) provided by the InP gainsection.


These characteristics make the Chilas laser your workhorse for a large variety of applications.

  • The ultra-narrow linewidth and compact, robust character of Chilas laser will allow you to increase the sensitivity of your metrology application in harsh environments.
  • The high optical power, ultranarrow linewidth (< 5 kHz), low RIN (<-155 dB/Hz) and low phase noise of our laser will warp your transceiver into the future, meeting novel standards for small channel spacing and enables advanced modulation methods (PAM, PSK,QAM, ..).
  • Beam your Lidar up to space, and bring our laser to the race.
  • Boost the resolution and accuracy of your Optical Fibre Sensor.
  • Enhanced the reach of your Coherence Tomography (OCT) application to microscopic levels by exploiting the full 100 nm bandwidth of Chilas’ lasers.

Chilas mission is to provide top-rated lasers for high-end customers. If you have demanding requirements ‎on a laser for your product, Chilas laser can be the solution you are looking for. You are cordially invited to join Chilas product ‎launch on7  September, 2021 from 16:00 to 17:00 CEST.
