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.

Optical power referenced to 1 millimatt

Multimode Fiber
Multimode Fiber has a large core (almost always 62.5 microns - a micron is one one millionth of a meter - but sometimes 50 microns) and is used with LED sources at wavelengths of 850 and 1300 nm for short distance, lower speed networks like LANs. 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.

Power Repeatability
Power Repeatability is the random uncertainty in reproducing the power level after changing and re-setting the power level. The power repeatability is ± half the span (in dB) between the highest and lowest actual power. Note: - The long-term power repeatability can be obtained by taken the power repeatability and power stability into account.

Refractive Index
The refractive index or index of refraction of a substance is a measure of the speed of light in that substance. It is expressed as a ratio of the speed of light in vacuum relative to that in the considered medium. The velocity at which light travels in vacuum is a physical constant, and the fastest speed at which energy or information can be transferred. However, light travels slower through any given material, or medium, that is not vacuum.

Total insertion loss
A measure of the loss of light within an optical component
