Bristol Instruments

Wavelength Meter and Spectrum Analyzer

Bristol Instruments offers a large variety of optical interferometer-based products for wavelength measurements and laser spectral characterization. Spectrum analyzer, wavelength meter and linewidth analyzer for the entire range from the visible light to the mid infrared are rapidly available. Bristol Instruments offers the right solution for pulsed and CW-lasers, as well as for WDM lasers and systems.


BRI-671 Series                   Wavelength Meter

  •      wavelength range / type
    • 375 – 1100 nm    871A/B-VIS
    • 520 – 1700 nm    871A/B-NIR
    • 1,0 - 5,0 µm        871A/B-IR
    • 1,5 - 12 µm         871A/B-MIR
  • for cw- and quasi-cw-operation (>10 MHz)
  • absolute accuracy:
    • ±0,2 ppm* (for type 671A)
    • ±0,75 ppm* (for type 671B)
      • 1 ppm* (for type 671B-MIR)
  • continous calibration due to built-in stabilized single-frequency HeNe laser
  • optical coupling:
    • FC/xPC fiber coupled for VIS and NIR
    • IR/MIR: free beam with (optional) fiber coupling
The 671-series was developed to measure the wavelengthof CW-lasers with highest accuracy. This system uses aproven Michelson interferometer-based design with a built-in wavelengthstandard to guarantees reliable accuracy which is required for the most meaningful experimental results.

ppm*: "parts per million", d.h. eine Genauigkeit von z.B. 0,2 ppm entspricht

  • @ 1000 nm -> 0,0002 nm bzw. 0,2 pm
  • @ 500 nm -> 0,0001 nm bzw. 0,1 pm
  • @ 600 THZ -> 120 GHz
