   BURLEIGH WA-1500 (WA1500)   Description / Specification:    
BURLEIGH WA-1500 Wavelength Meter

The Burleigh WA-1500 system employs Burleigh’s proven scanning Michelson interferometer-based WAVEMETER technology to determine the absolute wavelength of a laser by comparing its interference fringe pattern with that of a built-in HeNe laser wavelength standard. Three versions of the WA-1500 WAVEMETER are available for different operational wavelength ranges: visible (VIS: 400-1100 nm), near infrared (NIR: 600-1800 nm), and infrared (IR: 1.5-4 µm). Each version includes a photodetector and a beamsplitter optimized for its operational wavelength range. Conversion from one wavelength range to another is accomplished simply by replacing the photodetector and beamsplitter. This WAVEMETER system includes two standard methods of laser input. A laser beam from an optical fiber enters through a standard FC/PC (FC/APC optional) connector on the front panel. Or, a free space laser beam enters through an aperture on the side of the system. A flip mirror is used to switch from one input method to the other. The fiber-optic input is used primarily for visible and near infrared wavelengths. Specifications. Wavelength Range: 400 - 1100 nm (VIS), 600 - 1800 nm (NIR), 1.5 - 4 µm (IR). Absolute Accuracy: ± 0.2 ppm, ± 0.0002 nm @ 1000 nm, ±0.002 cm @ 10,000 cm, ± 0.06 GHz @ 300,000 GHz.

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.

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.
