   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.

Coherence Time
Average time for the wave train to lose its phase realtionships

Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG)
A fiber Bragg grating (FBG) is a type of distributed Bragg reflector constructed in a short segment of optical fiber that reflects particular wavelengths of light and transmits all others. This is achieved by adding a periodic variation to the refractive index of the fiber core, which generates a wavelength specific dielectric mirror. A fiber Bragg grating can therefore be used as an inline optical filter to block certain wavelengths, or as a wavelength-specific reflector.

Modulation is the process by which the characteristic of one wave (the carrier) is modified by another. Adding information into pulses of light.

Power Linearity
When changing the power level and measuring the differences (in dB) between actual and displayed power levels, the power linearity is ± half the span (in dB) between the maximum and the minimum value of all differences.

Stability is the extent to which a specified property, characteristic, or parameter of a substance, device, or apparatus, such as a fiber optic transmission system, remains fixed with the passage of time or with varying environmental conditions.
