   ADVANTEST TQ8210   Description / Specification:    
ADVANTEST TQ8210 Handheld Optical Power Meter

The Advantest TQ8210 handheld Optical Power Meter uses either a silicon photodiode sensor (for short wavelengths) or an InGaAs or a germanium photodiode sensor (for long wavelengths). A compact sensor facilitates measurements in clamped places. It is suitable for use in R&D applications for optical telecommunications, laser printers, CD equipment and magneto-optical disks. The TQ8210, in its compact body mounts full application of Advantest’s measuring technology and features a wavelength sensitivity compensation function, eliminating measurement errors which usually occurs when the range is changed or a new sensor is connected. The TQ8210 features a two-way power supply (including a chargeable Ni-Cd battery), allowing you to use it anytime and anywhere. Mainframe Specifications. Resolution: 0.005 to 0.1% (with unit of W), 0.01 dB (with unit of dBm). Absolute Accuracy of A/D converter: ±0.2% (included sensor measurement accuracy). Display: LCD with back light for use in dark location, Wavelength readout 4 digits(nm), Power readout 4-1/2 digits (mW,µW, nW, dBm, dBr). Range switching: Automatic or manual. Measurement speed: 2 Measurements/s or faster. Max-hold (for wait measurement): The maximum measured value is held. dBr (for dBr measurement): The value relative to a reference value is indicated. Wavelength sensitivity compensation: Automatic compensation of sensor sensitivity at set wavelengths. Smoothing function: Digital smoothing (by moving averages, 2 to 20 averages). Offset and zero: Stores sensor offset for automatic compensation. Analog output: Proportional to the input signal. Output voltage: 0V to 2V Output impedance: Max 10 ohm. Output connector: 2-pin mini-jack. Optical Sensors Specifications (Option); Q82014A, Wavelength range 0.4 to 1.1 µm. Q82015, Wavelength range 0.8 to 1.6 µm. Q82017A, Wavelength range 0.4 to 1.1 µm.

Amplified Spontaneous Emission Source (ASE)
ASE, a process where spontaneously emitted radiation (luminescence) is amplified. In lasers and particularly in high-gain erbium-doped amplifiers, amplified spontaneous emission is usually an unwanted effect. It tends to limit the gain achievable in a single stage of a fiber optic amplifier to the order of 40–50 dB.

Dynamic Range
In a transmission system, the ratio of the overload level to the noise level of the system, usually expressed in dB. Ratio of the highest to lowest detectable signal of a system, expressed in dB.

Optical Power
Optical Power is usually measured in "dBm", or decibels referenced to one miliwatt of power. while loss is a relative reading, optical power is an absolute measurement, referenced to standards. You measure absolute power to test transmitters or receivers and relative power to test loss.

Relative Wavelength Accuracy
When randomly changing the wavelength and measuring the differences between the actual and displayed wavelengths, the relative wavelength accuracy is ± half the span between the maximum and the minimum value of all differences.

Wavelength is a term for the color of light, usually expressed in nanometers (nm) or microns (m). In Fiber Optics the wavelenghts mostly used are in the infrared region where the light is invisible to the human eye.
