Reliability test system for laser diode qualification in pulsed or CW regime

laser diode reliability test system

Life-test and qualification test system for laser diode reliability evaluation in CW or pulsed regime down to 1 nanosecond. Up to 112 fully independent fibered devices are electrically, thermally and optically tested according to several user-programmed test scenario.

This laser diode reliability test system has been specially designed for the qualification and test  of  fiber-coupled devices with maximum of internal and external measurement flexibility. The laser diode optical power is measured independently from the BFMs or some external photodiodes with variable gain for a better precision. It allows for the independent and precise adjustment of the temperature of each laser diode package and each laser diode chip.

laser diode reliability test system
Exemple of a 5 ns pulse reaching 4 A peak current in ~1 ns

This laser diode reliability test system is a short-pulsed-compatible reliability evaluation system ideal for life-test and qualification testing.

Key Features : 

  • From CW (Continuous Wave) down to less than 1 ns pulse width
  • CW-LIV and Pulsed-LIV testing to avoid thermal effects
  • 100% independent behavior of each laser diode
  • Ideal for Butterfly or other fiber coupled packages (Mini-Butterfly, TOSA, TO-Can etc.)
  • Embedded flash memory in each tray of 8 laser diodes
  • Programming supervisory GUI with easy-to-use graphical interface
  • Full laser protection with special protective window


Applications of this laser diode reliability test system includes any qualifications, life-test or Burn-in tests :

  • In parallel with the production process for R&D and Qualification teams
  • At the end of the laser diode production process
  • After the production when considering applications requiring high reliability levels, like aerospace, nuclear plants etc.

A dedicated programming supervisory GUI with an easy-to-use graphical interface lets the user have total control of all module functions independently.

If you are interested in a lower number of channels or a Multichannel driver with no need for reliability testing functionalities, you may consider the following product : Multi channel laser diode driver

This laser diode reliability test system includes several levels of secured data management to ensure data integrity even through power blackout. Is the most complete system coming from our wide experience in pulsed laser diode drivers such as :


This system is ideal for singlemode laser diode reliability evaluation like  808 nm laser diodes, 915 nm laser diode976 nm laser diode980 nm laser diode1064 nm laser diode1550 nm laser diode or any other wavelengths. Butterfly laser diodes such as II-VI, lumentum or 3SP are perfectly well tested.
