   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. Display Resolution: 0.0001 nm, 0.001 cm, 0.01 GHz. Units: nm or cm (vacuum or air), GHz. Optical Input Signal Sensitivity: 20 µW (VIS, NIR), 1 mW (IR). Maximum Optical Input Signal: 2 mW (VIS, NIR), 100 mW (IR). Measurement Update Rate: 4 Hz. Optical Input Fiber: FC/PC connector standard, FC/APC connector optional. Analog Output: ± 5 volts proportional to wavelength deviation. Instrument Interface: RS-232 standard, GPIB/IEEE-488 optional.

*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.

Absolute Wavelength Accuracy
Absolute Wavelength Accuracy is the maximum difference between the actual wavelength and the displayed wavelength of the Optical Source. Wavelength is defined as wavelength in vacuum.

Decibel (dB)
A unit of measurement of optical power which indicates relative power. A -10 dB means a reduction in power by 10 times, -20 dB means another 10 times or 100 times overall, -30 means another 10 times or 1000 times overall and so on.

Nanometer (nm)
A unit of measure used to measure wavelength of light, meaning one one-billionth of a meter

Relative Intensity Noise (RIN)
Relative intensity noise (RIN), describes the instability in the power level of a laser. The noise term is important to describe lasers used in fiber-optic communication and LIDAR remote sensing. It is the square of the (spectrally resolved) RMS optical power amplitude divided by the measurement bandwidth and the square of the average optical power, expressed in dB/Hz.

Total Return loss
In an optical fiber, the loss that takes place at any discontinuity of refractive index, especially at an air-glass interface such as a fiber endface, at which a fraction of the optical signal is reflected back toward the source. RL = - 10log10 (Preflected/Preference)
