ADVANTEST Q8344A 350 to 1750 nm  Optical Spectrum Analyzer

The Advantest Q8344A is an optical spectrum analyzer with a wide wavelength range from 0.35 to 1.75 um. The usage of a Fourier spectrum system using a Michelson interferometer makes it possible to analyze coherence that cannot be obtained by the dispersing spectrum systems using monochromators. It exhibits its capabilities for evaluation of laser diodes for CDs and video disks. The built-in He-Ne laser used as the reference wavelength realizes a wavelength accuracy of ± 0.1 nm (1.3 um), ensuring a long-term measurement stability even without wavelength calibration. The Q8344A provides a maximum wavelength resolution of 0.05 nm (at 0.85 um), accommodating measurements of laser diodes with narrow mode intervals. The measurement speed is approx. 1.5 seconds (at 0.4 to 1.05 um and 0.8 to 1. 75 um) regardless of the analysis span, allowing it to be used as a system component. With the versatile display, analysis and processing functions , the Q8344A can be used for characteristic measurement applications for diverse components ranging from photo emitting elements such as laser diodes and LEDs to optical components such as optical fibers and filters .

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
