ANDO AQ8423B Optical Amplifier Analyzer

The Ando AQ8423B optical amplifier analyzer employs a new optical technique-the pulse method for easy, accurate evaluation of optical fiber amplifiers. This measurement system is able to provide accurate measurements even when the input level of the optical fiber amplifier signal is high, a challenging task with conventional measurement systems. It is available in two models-Type A, with a built-in optical booster amplifier, and Type B, without the optical booster amplifier. Specifications. Measured wavelengths: 1500 to 1570 nm. DUT input power range: -45 to -6 dBm. DUT output power measurement range: -30 to +30 dBm. Gain measurement Accuracy: ±0.20dB. NF measurement Accuracy: ±0.30dB. DUT input power set Accuracy: ±0.20dB. DUT output power measurement Accuracy: ±0.20dB. Measurement time 1st point: Approx. 30 sec. (normal measurement mode), Approx. 80 sec. (precision measurement mode). Setup time: Min. 1 hour after power on. Measurements Intensity dependence: Input-gain, input-NF, input-output. Measurements Wavelength dependence: wavelength-gain, wavelength-NF, wavelengthinput, wavelength -output. Measurements Stability: Time-gain, time-NF, time-input, time-output.

Broadband Source (BBS)
A Broadband Source is a spectrally large source that emits a signal which contains a continuous range of frequencies with a broad optical bandwidth (usually 100 nm or more). Sometimes called a white light source, there are two different meanings of this term. Visible white light and a source which does not necessarily emit in the visible spectral region.

Coherence is the pattern and or relationships of waves due to phase properties.

Linearity is the relative difference between the displayed power ratio, Dx/D0, and the actual (true) power ratio Px/P0 caused by changing the displayed power level from the reference level, D0, to an arbitrary displayed level, Dx.

Power Flatness Over Modulation
When changing the wavelength and modulation frequency, and measuring the differences between actual and displayed power levels (in dB), the power flatness is ± half the span between the maximum and the minimum value of all differences.

Singlemode fiber
Singlemode Fiber has a small core, only about 9 microns, and is used for telephony and CATV with laser sources at 1300 and 1550 nm. It can go very long distances at very high speeds. Both multimode and singlemode fiber have an outside diameter of 125 microns - about 5 thousandths of an inch - just slightly larger than a human hair.
