JDSU CORL-A1 Optical Return Loss Meter

The JDSU cORL-A1 provides a compact, intuitive Optical Return Loss Meter designed to enable applications ranging from simple continuity verification and return loss testing to integration into process automation equipment designed for automated alignment. Available in two or three laser versions with the option to select from four key wavelengths: 1310, 1490, 1550, and 1625 nm. The intregrated multiplexer and single optical output found in the cORL-A1 greatly simplifies the optical connections and calibrations. The 70 dB dynamic range in return loss enables the measurement of high performance angled physical contact (APC) connectors. A simple, intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) and keypad minimizes training requirements. A universal serial bus (USB) interface may be used for test automation interfacing to a PC. While connected by USB, the cORL-A1 does not require an additional mains connection, reducing cord tangle. Specifications. ORL Mode; Peak wavelength: 1310, 1490, 1550, 1625 nm.

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.
