Product specs for Agilent 83438A

Agilent 83438A

Product Description:

Agilent 83438A Erbium ASE Source

Wavelength: 1530nm
Power: 5.5dBm

In conjunction with an optical spectrum analyzer, the incoherent light source HP 83438A allows you to measure insertion

loss, crosstalk, bandwidth, polarization dependencies,and other parameters of passive optical components versus


The HP 83438A provides more than +6 dBm in the 1550 nm window, allowing you to characterize advanced components

such as isolators, circulators, add/drop multiplexers, gratings, or demultiplexers for dense wavelength-division multiplexing

(DWDM) systems.

High power density allows high measurement range

Single-mode fiber output, angled connector option

Unpolarized (standard) or fully polarized (optional) to characterize the polarization dependence versus wavelength of

the device under test

Modulation input: up to 300 Hz for applications using lock-in techniques or external control (o For DWDM systems
Modulation input:up to 300 Hz
Measures Insertion Loss
