High Resolution Optical Spectrum Analyzer

Specifications

From 250 GHz to 5 MHz resolution

+/-3 pm wavelength accuracy

Close-in dynamic range > 60dB @ +/- 0.4pm

Rectangular shape resolution filters

2 channels, one per polarization axis

Built in tunable laser source

Component transmission analysis

Description

With a 500 times better resolution than the best conventional grating-based OSA, it can clearly show much more spectral information than traditional OSA which are measuring in reality the spectrum envelope and not its real shape.

APEX Technologies OSA has not only the best resolution (5 MHz/0.04 pm), but also the best wavelength accuracy (+/- 3 pm) and the best close-in dynamic range (60 dB @ +/- 0.4 pm from the peak) you can find on the market.

Optical Spectrum Analyzer specifications :

From 250GHz to 20 MHz resolution

+/- 3 pm Wavelength accuracy

Close-in dynamic range > 60dB @ +/- 3pm

Optical Modulation Analyzer specifications :

No symbol rate limitation (13 Thz Optical Bandwidth)

No modulation format limitation

PRBS pattern Analysis

Description

This equipment is an ultra high resolution Optical Spectrum Analyzer and an Optical Modulation Analyzer !

It can measure the intensity and the phase as a function of frequency. The phase and the intensity information can then be used to calculate chirp, phase, alpha parameter or pulse shape as a function of time, further more it can display constellation, intensity eye diagram, phase eye diagram, EVM and BER estimation.

This equipment has no modulation format and symbol rate limitation and is now adapted to PRBS pattern anlysis.
