Keysight (Agilent) 8166B 17-Slot Lightwave Multichannel System Mainframe

The Agilent 8166B Lightwave Multichannel System is the ideal mainframe for test solutions of multiport optical applications because it hosts up to 17 816xxx series modules such as power modules, compact tunable lasers or fixed laser sources. The 8166B is equipped with 17 Slots to host 816xxx series modules in any combination, synchronized parallel testing of multichannel components, graphical display for immediate control, GPIB interface, parallel and serial ports, and easy firmware upgraded high-level API. Specifications. Display: Graphical active color display, 300 x 240 points visible, 4 updates per second, VGA connector for external monitor. Display Resolution: 0.0001dB/dBm, 0.01pW to 10pW (depending on power range), up to 6.5 digits (user definable). Trigger: True synchronous on all channels. Max. 100 kHz for triggering and 1 MHz (50% duty cycle) for external digital modulation. GPIB capability: All modes and parameters accessible via GP-IB interface. Number of Modules: 17 Modules. Modules designed for the HP 8153A Lightwave Multimeter are NOT compatible with the Agilent 8166B Lightwave Multichannel System.

Coherence Length
Average distance over which superimposed waves lose their phase relationships

Linewidth is the width of a spectral line in terms of wavelength, wave number and frequency.

Power Flatness Versus Wavelength
When changing the wavelength at constant power setting and recording the differences between actual and displayed power levels, the power flatness is ± half the span (in dB) between the maximum and the minimum of the measured power levels.

Spectral Width
Spectral Width is the wavelength interval over which the magnitude of all spectral components is equal to or greater than a specified fraction of the magnitude of the component having the maximum value. In optical communications applications, the usual method of specifying spectral width is the full width at half maximum. This is the same convention used in bandwidth, defined as the frequency range where power drops by less than half (at most -3 dB).

Telecom Bands
Optical fiber communications typically operate in a wavelength region corresponding to one of the following Bands. O Band (original): 1260–1360 nm. E Band (extended): 1360–1460 nm. S Band (short wavelengths): 1460–1530 nm. C Band (conventional): 1530–1565 nm. L Band (long wavelengths): 1565–1625 nm. U Band (ultralong wavelengths): 1625–1675 nm
