   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.

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 is the pattern and or relationships of waves due to phase properties.

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.
