   Keysight (Agilent) 8168A   Description / Specification:    
Keysight (Agilent) 8168A 1500 to 1565 nm Tunable Laser Source

The HP 8168A tunable laser source is a basic tool for characterizing and testing optical amplifiers and components. The HP 8168A operates in the 1550 nm window. A built-in side mode filter ensures that a true single-mode laser line is generated for every wavelength point, eliminating any possible multimoding. A 0.001 nm resolution also makes these tunable lasers valuable tools for heterodyne measurements and coherent applications. Both tunable lasers provide independent control of output power and wavelength on a what-you-set-is-what-you-get basis. Wavelength scans, which require an output power that is stable over time and flat across all wavelengths, can be performed reliably, accurately, and quickly. Specifications. Wavelength Range: 1500 nm to 1565 nm. Absolute Wavelength Accuracy: <± 0.1 nm. Relative Wavelength Accuracy: ± 0.05 nm (lypical ± 0.02 nm). Wavelength Resolution: 0.001 nm, 125 MHz at 1550 nm.

*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the Keysight (Agilent) 8168A. Price does not in most cases include measurement performance data. Pricing does include NIST traceable calibration and issue of a calibration certificate and calibration label. Pricing may vary slightly due to volume and location of laboratory supporting calibration. Volume pricing may apply. On-site fees may apply depending on logistics, location and volume of work to be completed during the visit.

Absolute Wavelength Accuracy
Absolute Wavelength Accuracy is the maximum difference between the actual wavelength and the displayed wavelength of the Optical Source. Wavelength is defined as wavelength in vacuum.

Decibel (dB)
A unit of measurement of optical power which indicates relative power. A -10 dB means a reduction in power by 10 times, -20 dB means another 10 times or 100 times overall, -30 means another 10 times or 1000 times overall and so on.

Nanometer (nm)
A unit of measure used to measure wavelength of light, meaning one one-billionth of a meter

Relative Intensity Noise (RIN)
Relative intensity noise (RIN), describes the instability in the power level of a laser. The noise term is important to describe lasers used in fiber-optic communication and LIDAR remote sensing. It is the square of the (spectrally resolved) RMS optical power amplitude divided by the measurement bandwidth and the square of the average optical power, expressed in dB/Hz.

Total Return loss
In an optical fiber, the loss that takes place at any discontinuity of refractive index, especially at an air-glass interface such as a fiber endface, at which a fraction of the optical signal is reflected back toward the source. RL = - 10log10 (Preflected/Preference)
