   NEWPORT 818-IS-1   Description / Specification:    
NEWPORT 818-IS-1 400 to 1650 nm InGaAs Universal Fiber Optic Detector

The Newport 818-IS-1 Universal Fiber Optic Detector, use a symmetrical integrating sphere design to ensure accurate calibration, regardless of the fiber type measured. The integrating sphere uses a novel dual detector design, with special optics that improve temperature sensitivity markedly from ordinary detectors. The 818-IS-1 is compatible with Newport's legacy power meters utilizing calibration modules, while the 918D-IS versions have an integral DB15 connector and are compatible with Newport's new power meters. Maximum versatility is provided by the detector’s dual port design. A variety of adaptors for connector-terminated fibers are provided, and plug into the detector’s front port. The rear port is designed to measure light from straight and angle cleaved bare fibers, using Newport’s FP3-FH1 bare fiber holder. Specifications. Spectral Range (nm): 400 to 1650. Saturation Power (mW): > 200. Saturation Energy (µJ) 10–15 ns pulse: >1. Pulse Energy, Maximum (µJ): 100. Calibration Uncertainty: <5% @ 410 to 640nm, 3% @ 650 to 1650nm.

Chromatic Dispersion
Chromatic Dispersion is a broadening of the input signal as it travels down the length of the fiber. Chromatic Dispersion results from a variation in propagation delay with wavelength, and is affected by fiber materials and dimensions.

A Detector is a signal conversion device that converts power from one form to another, such as from optical power to electrical power

Jitter in technical terms is the deviation in or displacement of some aspect of the pulses in a high-frequency digital signal. Jitter is the time variation of a periodic signal in electronics and telecommunications, often in relation to a reference clock source. Jitter may be observed in characteristics such as the frequency of successive pulses, the signal amplitude, or phase of periodic signals. Jitter is a significant, and usually undesired, factor in the design of almost all communications links (e.g., USB, PCI-e, SATA, OC-48). In clock recovery applications it is called timing jitter.

Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD)
Polarization mode dispersion (PMD) is a form of modal dispersion where two different polarizations of light in a waveguide, which normally travel at the same speed, travel at different speeds due to random imperfections and asymmetries, causing random spreading of optical pulses. It is he difference between the maximum and minimum values of loss typically measured in ps/km^1/2.
