Keysight (Agilent) 8168D 1490 to 1565 nm Tunable Laser Source

The HP 8168D tunable laser source is a basic tool for characterizing and testing optical amplifiers and components. The current values of wavelength and output power are indicated on a large and bright display. You can select both parameters independently within the specified range. If you change the output power, the wavelength remains stable, and if you change the wavelength, the output power remains stable. Just input a new wavelength and the instrument will set it immediately. With its coherence control mode made active, the HP 8168D will feature an effective linewidth of up to 500 MHz, thus drastically reducing the interference ripple. The internal modulation frequency is selectable between 250 Hz to 300 kHz for squarewave signals with 100% modulation depth (on/off). In the external modulation mode, the bandwidth is between 200 kHz and 20 MHz with a duty cycle depending on the input signal and a maximum modulation depth of ±15%. Specifications.

*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the Keysight (Agilent) 8168D. 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.

Broadband Source (BBS)
A Broadband Source is a spectrally large source that emits a signal which contains a continuous range of frequencies with a broad optical bandwidth (usually 100 nm or more). Sometimes called a white light source, there are two different meanings of this term. Visible white light and a source which does not necessarily emit in the visible spectral region.

Coherence
Coherence is the pattern and or relationships of waves due to phase properties.

Linearity
Linearity is the relative difference between the displayed power ratio, Dx/D0, and the actual (true) power ratio Px/P0 caused by changing the displayed power level from the reference level, D0, to an arbitrary displayed level, Dx.

Power Flatness Over Modulation
When changing the wavelength and modulation frequency, and measuring the differences between actual and displayed power levels (in dB), the power flatness is ± half the span between the maximum and the minimum value of all differences.

Singlemode fiber
Singlemode Fiber has a small core, only about 9 microns, and is used for telephony and CATV with laser sources at 1300 and 1550 nm. It can go very long distances at very high speeds. 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.
