   ANDO AQ6140 (AQ-6140)   Description / Specification:    
ANDO AQ6140 Multi-Wavelength Meter

The Ando AQ6140 Multi-Wavelength Meter has been developed as a measuring instrument compatible for the characteristic evaluation of WDM (wavelength divided multiplex) systems and Fabry-Perot laser multiplexing. The wavelength measurement range is 1270 to 1650nm, and up to 256 laser beams can be measured simultaneously. The GP-IB and RS-232-C interfaces are provided as a standard allowing remote control.

Coherence Length
Average distance over which superimposed waves lose their phase relationships

Linewidth is the width of a spectral line in terms of wavelength, wave number and frequency.

Power Flatness Versus Wavelength
When changing the wavelength at constant power setting and recording the differences between actual and displayed power levels, the power flatness is ± half the span (in dB) between the maximum and the minimum of the measured power levels.

Spectral Width
Spectral Width is the wavelength interval over which the magnitude of all spectral components is equal to or greater than a specified fraction of the magnitude of the component having the maximum value. In optical communications applications, the usual method of specifying spectral width is the full width at half maximum. This is the same convention used in bandwidth, defined as the frequency range where power drops by less than half (at most -3 dB).

Telecom Bands
Optical fiber communications typically operate in a wavelength region corresponding to one of the following Bands. O Band (original): 1260–1360 nm. E Band (extended): 1360–1460 nm. S Band (short wavelengths): 1460–1530 nm. C Band (conventional): 1530–1565 nm. L Band (long wavelengths): 1565–1625 nm. U Band (ultralong wavelengths): 1625–1675 nm
