   ACTERNA OLP-15B   Description / Specification:    
ACTERNA OLP-15B 800 to 1700 nm Handheld Optical Power Meter

The Acterna OLP-15B Optical Power Meter is especially suitable for applications involving the installation, maintenance or repair of fiber optics networks, as they are both compact and easy to use. It can be used to make power and loss measurements in the wavelength range from 800 to 1700 nm. The OLP-15B is specially suited to measuring high power levels, such as those found in CATV systems, optical amplifiers (e.g. EDFA) and high-power lasers. The upper display limit for the OLP-15B is +20 dBm. The lower limit of below -60 dBm means that the instruments are suitable for practically any application. The OLP-15B can store up to 150 sets of data and output these to a PC or printer for documentation via the built-in RS 232 interface. Specifications. Wavelength range: 800 to 1700nm. Photodiode: Germanium. Fiber type: 9/125 to 100/140 um. Standard wavelengths, switchable: 780, 850, 1300, 1310, 1550 nm. Display range: -70 to +11 dBm. Max. permitted level: +20 dBm. Intrinsic error: ± 0.13 dB (corresponds to ±3%). Overall measurement uncertainty for the level range -60 to +18 dBm: + 0.25dB +0.8 nW (850 nm), ±0.20 dB ±2 nW (1300,1310 nm), ±0.40 dB ±2 nW (1550 nm). Wavelength detection: automatic switching and display of nominal wavelength. Data memory: 1000 results. Results data/Remote control: RS 232 interface. Modulation detection: 270 Hz, 330 Hz, 1 kHz, 2 kHz. Result display: LCD, 4-digit. Resolution: 0.01 dB/0.001 uW.

Chromatic Dispersion
Chromatic Dispersion is a broadening of the input signal as it travels down the length of the fiber. Chromatic Dispersion results from a variation in propagation delay with wavelength, and is affected by fiber materials and dimensions.

A Detector is a signal conversion device that converts power from one form to another, such as from optical power to electrical power

Jitter in technical terms is the deviation in or displacement of some aspect of the pulses in a high-frequency digital signal. Jitter is the time variation of a periodic signal in electronics and telecommunications, often in relation to a reference clock source. Jitter may be observed in characteristics such as the frequency of successive pulses, the signal amplitude, or phase of periodic signals. Jitter is a significant, and usually undesired, factor in the design of almost all communications links (e.g., USB, PCI-e, SATA, OC-48). In clock recovery applications it is called timing jitter.

Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD)
Polarization mode dispersion (PMD) is a form of modal dispersion where two different polarizations of light in a waveguide, which normally travel at the same speed, travel at different speeds due to random imperfections and asymmetries, causing random spreading of optical pulses. It is he difference between the maximum and minimum values of loss typically measured in ps/km^1/2.
