   BURLEIGH WA-2500 (WA2500)   Description / Specification:    
BURLEIGH WA-2500 Wavemeter Jr Wavelength Meter

The Burleigh WA-2500 Wavemeter Jr is an instrument for wavelength measurement of CW laser sources that combines accuracy with ease of use. The accuracy is +/- 1 part in 10,000 over the full wavelength range. The primary application for Model WA-2500 is measurement of the wavelength or the frequency of tunable lasers that operate from 400 to 1800 nanometers, particularly dye lasers, Ti:Sapphire lasers and diode lasers. Two detectors are provided to cover this range with high sensitivity. The VIS detector is used for lasers operating from 400 to 1100 nanometers, and the IR detector for lasers that operate from 600 to 1800 nanometers. Specifications. Wavelength Range: 400 - 1800 nm. Accuracy: 1 part in 10,000, at 1000 nm: 0.1 nm (1 cm^-1). Display Resolution(Display resolution is adjusted automatically depending on the linewidth of the measured light.): 0.01 nm (0.1 cm^-1). Display Units: Nanometers or wavenumbers in vacuum or air. Display Update Period: Normal Mode; 0.2 seconds, Average Mode 2 seconds. Input Power (Input power requirement is specified as power out of the fiber and into the instrument. For a collimated beam with a diameter 2.5 mm, coupling into the standard beam receiver is usually greater than 30%.): 20 microwatts. Beam Receiver Accessory: Coupling Head Aperture; 2.5 millimeter, Patch cord Cable Length; 3 meters. RS-232 Interface Standard (2400 Baud).

Coherence Length
Average distance over which superimposed waves lose their phase relationships

Linewidth is the width of a spectral line in terms of wavelength, wave number and frequency.

Power Flatness Versus Wavelength
When changing the wavelength at constant power setting and recording the differences between actual and displayed power levels, the power flatness is ± half the span (in dB) between the maximum and the minimum of the measured power levels.

Spectral Width
Spectral Width is the wavelength interval over which the magnitude of all spectral components is equal to or greater than a specified fraction of the magnitude of the component having the maximum value. In optical communications applications, the usual method of specifying spectral width is the full width at half maximum. This is the same convention used in bandwidth, defined as the frequency range where power drops by less than half (at most -3 dB).

Telecom Bands
Optical fiber communications typically operate in a wavelength region corresponding to one of the following Bands. O Band (original): 1260–1360 nm. E Band (extended): 1360–1460 nm. S Band (short wavelengths): 1460–1530 nm. C Band (conventional): 1530–1565 nm. L Band (long wavelengths): 1565–1625 nm. U Band (ultralong wavelengths): 1625–1675 nm
