Tunable Laser Module and Fast Spectral Loss Engine

Agilent Technologies (Santa Clara, CA) has introduced a compact tunable laser module for its 816x Series lightwave measurement platform. The Agilent 81960A module, which features a 200 nm/s sweep speed and increased acceleration, measures dense-wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) components. The 81960A offers C- and L-band wavelength coverage for DWDM component measurements; it also provides bidirectional sweeping and 1-3 Hz repetition rate, depending on range. Automated measurements are supported by N7700A measurement engines, an updated 816x plug-and-play driver, N4150A photonic foundation library, and direct SCPI commands. The 81960A features up to +14 dBm output power, adjustable down to +6 dBm.

altThe company has also released a fast spectral loss engine, a software package for the N7700A photonic application suite. The N7700A-102 fast spectral loss engine synchronizes the laser with N7744A or N7745A power meters to produce power and loss spectra in a graphical display.
