ANDO AQ8423B Optical Amplifier Analyzer

The Ando AQ8423B optical amplifier analyzer employs a new optical technique-the pulse method for easy, accurate evaluation of optical fiber amplifiers. This measurement system is able to provide accurate measurements even when the input level of the optical fiber amplifier signal is high, a challenging task with conventional measurement systems. It is available in two models-Type A, with a built-in optical booster amplifier, and Type B, without the optical booster amplifier. Specifications. Measured wavelengths: 1500 to 1570 nm. DUT input power range: -45 to -6 dBm. DUT output power measurement range: -30 to +30 dBm. Gain measurement Accuracy: ±0.20dB. NF measurement Accuracy: ±0.30dB. DUT input power set Accuracy: ±0.20dB. DUT output power measurement Accuracy: ±0.20dB. Measurement time 1st point: Approx. 30 sec. (normal measurement mode), Approx. 80 sec. (precision measurement mode). Setup time: Min. 1 hour after power on. Measurements Intensity dependence: Input-gain, input-NF, input-output. Measurements Wavelength dependence: wavelength-gain, wavelength-NF, wavelengthinput, wavelength -output. Measurements Stability: Time-gain, time-NF, time-input, time-output.

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.
