Optical spectrum analyzer

MS9710A optical spectrum analyzer tests wavelengths from 600 to 1750 nm with 70-dB dynamic range. The 32-lb unit features test and characterization of WDM and dense WDM networks, optical light sources and Edfa devices. Preprogrammed measurements include gain tilt, power at wavelength, peak and valley search, as many as 50 channel markers and PMD analysis. The analyzer has a flatness level of ۪.01 dB, wavelength accuracy of ۪.05 nm (level ۪.4 dB), wavelength linearity of ۪.02 nm (level ۪.05 dB), wavelength resolution of ۪.07 dB (level ۪.01 dB) and wavelength stability of ۪.005 nm (level ۪.02 dB). Other features include a built-in printer, floppy disk drive and user-definable keys. The unit costs $41,500.
