   BURLEIGH WA-1600 (WA1600)   Description / Specification:    
BURLEIGH WA-1600 700 to 1700 nm Optical Wavelength Meter

The Burleigh WA-1600 Wavemeter 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. The WA-1600 uses a stabilized single frequency HeNe laser that is calibrated to an accuracy better than ± 50 MHz relative to the Ne20 atomic line center. This corresponds to a reference accuracy of ± 0.1 parts per million. It instrument has a built-in bi-directional RS-232 interface and a GPIB interface for transmitting data and remotely controlling the instrument. Specifications. Wavelength Range: 700 - 1700 nm. Accuracy: ±0.2 ppm (± 0.30 pm @ 1550 nm). Display Resolution: 0.0001 nm. Input Sensitivity: -30 dBm (1µW) 1200 - 1700 nm, -20 dBm below 1200 nm. Max Input Power: 10 dBm (10 mW). Optical Power Measurement Accuracy: ±0.5dB (±10%). Resolution: ±0.05dB (±1%). Measurement Rate: 1 per second. Input: Fiber Optic Coupler, FC/APC standard. Instrument Interface: RS-232 standard, GPIB/IEEE-488 optional.

Amplified Spontaneous Emission Source (ASE)
ASE, a process where spontaneously emitted radiation (luminescence) is amplified. In lasers and particularly in high-gain erbium-doped amplifiers, amplified spontaneous emission is usually an unwanted effect. It tends to limit the gain achievable in a single stage of a fiber optic amplifier to the order of 40–50 dB.

Dynamic Range
In a transmission system, the ratio of the overload level to the noise level of the system, usually expressed in dB. Ratio of the highest to lowest detectable signal of a system, expressed in dB.

Optical Power
Optical Power is usually measured in "dBm", or decibels referenced to one miliwatt of power. while loss is a relative reading, optical power is an absolute measurement, referenced to standards. You measure absolute power to test transmitters or receivers and relative power to test loss.

Relative Wavelength Accuracy
When randomly changing the wavelength and measuring the differences between the actual and displayed wavelengths, the relative wavelength accuracy is ± half the span between the maximum and the minimum value of all differences.

Wavelength is a term for the color of light, usually expressed in nanometers (nm) or microns (m). In Fiber Optics the wavelenghts mostly used are in the infrared region where the light is invisible to the human eye.
