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.

Chromatic Dispersion
Chromatic Dispersion is a broadening of the input signal as it travels down the length of the fiber. Chromatic Dispersion results from a variation in propagation delay with wavelength, and is affected by fiber materials and dimensions.

Detector
A Detector is a signal conversion device that converts power from one form to another, such as from optical power to electrical power

Jitter
Jitter in technical terms is the deviation in or displacement of some aspect of the pulses in a high-frequency digital signal. Jitter is the time variation of a periodic signal in electronics and telecommunications, often in relation to a reference clock source. Jitter may be observed in characteristics such as the frequency of successive pulses, the signal amplitude, or phase of periodic signals. Jitter is a significant, and usually undesired, factor in the design of almost all communications links (e.g., USB, PCI-e, SATA, OC-48). In clock recovery applications it is called timing jitter.

Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD)
Polarization mode dispersion (PMD) is a form of modal dispersion where two different polarizations of light in a waveguide, which normally travel at the same speed, travel at different speeds due to random imperfections and asymmetries, causing random spreading of optical pulses. It is he difference between the maximum and minimum values of loss typically measured in ps/km^1/2.
