The TLS001 T-Cube Laser Source is a fully functional, highly compact laser source incorporating driver electronics and an FC/PC
(wide 2.1 mm key compatible) connected pigtailed laser diode in both 635 nm and 1550 nm variants.The internally-pigtailed Fabry-Perot laser diode is connected to the rear panel FC feedthrough via a single mode fiber. With this fiber-to-fiber connection at the output, these devices deliver more useful optical power than air-to-fiber systems that use a receptacle with embedded optics. It can be controlled manually or via a USB interface. The output laser power is monitored continuously and a feedback circuit adjusts the laser power to achieve a constant output power.

Multiple T-Cube units can be connected to a single PC via standard USB hub technology or by using the T-Cube Controller Hub (TCH002) for multi-function control applications.

Power Supply Options
The preferred power supply (i.e., single channel, multi-channel, or hub-based) depends on the end user's application and whether you already own compatible power supplies. To that end and in keeping with Thorlabs' green initiative, we do not ship these units bundled with a power supply. This avoids the cost and inconvenience of receiving an unwanted single channel supply if a multi-channel or hub-based system would be more appropriate. The power supply options compatible with the TLS001 T-Cube Laser Source are listed in the table below.
