   ILX LIGHTWAVE FPM-8210   Description / Specification:    
ILX LIGHTWAVE FPM-8210 Single Channel Optical Power Meter

The ILX Lightwave FPM-8210 Fiber Optic Power Meter has a single input port for both connectorized and bare fiber measurements. Virtually insensitive to polarization state or to pattern changes from fi ber orientation, these meters deliver repeatable high resolution results. ILX Lightwave engineered the FPM-8210 for the production test workstation. The innovative fiber optic head design makes reliable fiber endface positioning a routine task, whether or not the fiber has a connector. With the CA-120 Bare Fiber Adapter, this meter is compatible with either ILX Lightwave or Agilent bare fiber holders. Specifications. Wavelength Range: 800 to1650 nm. Power Range: -70 to +20 dBm.

Coherence Length
Average distance over which superimposed waves lose their phase relationships

Linewidth is the width of a spectral line in terms of wavelength, wave number and frequency.

Power Flatness Versus Wavelength
When changing the wavelength at constant power setting and recording the differences between actual and displayed power levels, the power flatness is ± half the span (in dB) between the maximum and the minimum of the measured power levels.

Spectral Width
Spectral Width is the wavelength interval over which the magnitude of all spectral components is equal to or greater than a specified fraction of the magnitude of the component having the maximum value. In optical communications applications, the usual method of specifying spectral width is the full width at half maximum. This is the same convention used in bandwidth, defined as the frequency range where power drops by less than half (at most -3 dB).

Telecom Bands
Optical fiber communications typically operate in a wavelength region corresponding to one of the following Bands. O Band (original): 1260–1360 nm. E Band (extended): 1360–1460 nm. S Band (short wavelengths): 1460–1530 nm. C Band (conventional): 1530–1565 nm. L Band (long wavelengths): 1565–1625 nm. U Band (ultralong wavelengths): 1625–1675 nm
