A tunable laser is a complex piece of technology that can initially be difficult to control. Pure Photonics makes it easy by making convenient control tools available to the users. This will speed-up the learning cycle and ensure that the customer can access the features with minimal effort. The following tools are available on this page:
Graphical User Interface
The easiest way to access the special features of the Pure Photonics ITLA is to use the windows based GUIs, where the user can easily set the boundary conditions and monitor the performance.
We are happy to announce that the full suite of GUIs is available for free and includes all the major features, such as Clean Sweep, Clean Scan, Clean Jump, Firmware Upgrade, Calibration and Basic Settings.

Labview example 1 and 2 (currently Pure Photonics does not have a Labview license, hence maintenance of this code is not available. The code is pretty messy, but provides a good basis for building your own vi's)
Python example for RS-232 communication
We are pleased to publish the latest Pure Photonics firmware loads (modified 26 January 2016):
Note that these firmware versions only works on Pure Photonics products. If you have a NeoPhotonics product, please contact Pure Photonics for a complimentary upgrade to check out the new features.
