Optical test equipment

Optical test equipment or optical measuring instruments are used to measure and characterize the physical properties of light. The insatiable demand for higher capacity in communication networks has fueled the need for highly precise optical test solutions. In addition, precision optical measurements are essential to optical research applications for biophotonics, environmental sensing, and consumer products.

For more than thirty years, Yokogawa (formerly Ando) has delivered quality, consistency, ease of use, and market leadership for optical test applications.

Optical Spectrum Analyzer

An Optical Spectrum Analyzer (or OSA) is a precision instrument designed to measure and display the distribution of power of an optical source over a specified wavelength span. An OSA trace displays power in the vertical scale and the wavelength in the horizontal scale.

Wavelength range: 350 to 1200 nm

Wavelength range: 600 to 1700 nm
