The WaveAnalyzer(TM) 1500S is an Optical Spectrum Analyzer offering very high spectral resolution in combination with a fast update rate of 4 measurements per second across the entire C-band or 10 Hz across any 200 GHz window.

Product Detail

The WaveAnalyzer(TM) 1500S is an Optical Spectrum Analyzer offering very high spectral resolution in combination with a fast update rate of 4 measurements per second across the entire C-band or 10 Hz across any 200 GHz window. The operating principle is based on coherent detection using a fast scanning laser. In addition to being very compact, the WaveAnalyzer 1500S is rugged and robust, as the measurement core does not contain moving parts. The instrument is controlled by a Windows based computer using either the Graphical User Interface or the Application Programmers Interface (API). A sample measurement of a 10G PRBS signal is displayed in the graph below. It shows the high resolution trace of the WaveAnalyzer in comparison to a standard grating based OSA, which offers a 0.01nm resolution bandwidth. The WaveAnalyzer trace is a single scan measurement with sub-picometer resolution, obtained in about 0.25s without averaging.
