The G06 generation of 980 nm pump lasers shows very low failure rates below 100 FIT at 410 mW output power and 25°C heat sink temperature. The failure rate is below 1000 FIT at an ex-fiber output power of 200 mW and 75°C for FBG stabilized modules that operate over a temperature range from 0°C to 75°C. This makes the G06 pump lasers the best choice for submarine and an ideal candidate for low-cost metro as well as long-haul terrestrial applications.
