   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.

*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the BURLEIGH WA-1500. 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.
