Keysight (Agilent) 8168E 1475 to 1575 nm Tunable Laser Source

The HP 8168E 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 8168E 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.

Bandwidth
Bandwidth is the difference between the upper and lower frequencies in a contiguous set of frequencies within which a fiber optic component, link or network will operate.

Extinction Ratio (ER)
Extinction Ratio is the ratio of two optical power levels, of a digital signal generated by an optical source, (example a laser diode), where P1 is the optical power level generated when the light source is "on," and P0 is the power level generated when the light source is "off." The extinction ratio may be expressed as a fraction, in dB, or as a percentage.

Optical Signal-to-noise Ratio (OSNR)
Optical Signal-to-noise ratio is the ratio between the signal power and the noise power in a given bandwidth. Most commonly a reference bandwidth of 0.1 nm is used. This bandwidth is independent from the modulation format, the frequency and the receiver. For instance a OSNR of 20dB/0.1nm could be given, even the signal of 40 GBit DPSK would not fit in this bandwidth. OSNR is measured with a Optical Spectrum Analyzer. It is generally measured at the wavelength of interest.

Repeatability
Repeatability is the variation in a number of repeated measured quantities when measurement conditions are changed and restored. The value corresponds to half the spread between the minimum and maximum value measured.

Wavelength Repeatability
Wavelength Repeatability is the random uncertainty in reproducing a wavelength after detuning and re-setting the wavelength. The wavelength repeatability is ± half the span between the maximum and the minimum value of all actual values of these wavelengths. Example test condition: uninterrupted TLS output power, constant power level, temperature within operating temperature range, coherence control off, short time span. Note: NOTE The long-term wavelength repeatability can be obtained by taken the wavelength repeatability and wavelength stability into account.
