Product Description

While monochromator based Optical Spectrum Analyzers can achieve a maximum resolution of 10pm, the AP2040 series is based on an intereferometric principle which is able to dramatically increase this resolution by a factor of 62, achieving a 0.16pm resolution (20MHz), a +/-3pm absolute wavelength accuracy and a close-in dynamic range of 60dB at 10pm. With a price in the same order as conventional monochromator based OSAs, it makes the AP2040 the first of its kind in the next generation Optical Spectrum Analyzers.
