Keysight (Agilent) 83438A Erbium ASE Source

The Agilent 83438A Erbium ASE Source provides incoherent light for characterizing fiber-optic components. Its output is centered at approximately 1550 nm. Because it has a relatively high-power spectral density, you can probe devices with medium or high insertion loss. Its single-mode output originates from the amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) of an Erbium doped fiber amplifier. The power spectral density of the output is up to one hundred times (20 dB) greater than that of edge emitting LEDs (for example, the Agilent 83437A Broadband Light Source) and up to 100,000 times (50 dB) greater than white-light tungsten lamp sources. An internal optical isolator protects the Agilent 83438A from back reflections from the device under test. This greatly improves the power stability of the Agilent 83438A. Specifications. Total output power: +8.1 dBm maximum (6.5 mW), +5.5 dBm minimum (3.5 mW) . Power stability: < ±0.02 dB (15 minutes), < ±0.05 dB (6 hours). Compatible fiber: 9/125 µm, single mode. Spectral density: > –13 dBm [1 nm] (> 50 µW/nm) @ 1530, 1550, 1560 nm. Output return loss: > 30 dB (characteristic). Degree of polarization: < 5%, standard (characteristic). Modulation: Digital (TTL compatible), DC to 300 Hz (characteristic). Options. 009, Built-in polarizer. 011, Diamond HMS-10 fiber-optic input connector interface. 013, DIN 47256 fiber-optic input connector interface. 014, ST fiber-optic input connector interface. 017, SC fiber-optic input connector interface. 022, Angled contact fiber-optic output interface.

*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the Keysight (Agilent) 83438A. 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.
