   ILX LIGHTWAVE OMH-6790B   Description / Specification:    
ILX LIGHTWAVE OMH-6790B 830 to 1100 nm Silicon Optical Power/Wavelength Head

The ILX OMH-6790B Optical Power and Wavelength Measurement Head is an integrating sphere based measurement head compatible with the OMM-6810B Optical Power and Wavelength Meter. It is designed to measure optical power up to 1W over a wavelength range of 830-1100nm. The OMH-6790B also has the unique ability to measure the wavelength of the source with an NIST traceable accuracy of ±0.2nm. Interchangeable fiber optic adapters allow the OMH-6790B Optical Power and Wavelength Measurement Head to be compatible with a wide range of connectors including FC, SC, LC, bare FC ferrule, and bare fiber.

Average time for the wave train to lose its phase realtionships

Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG)
A fiber Bragg grating (FBG) is a type of distributed Bragg reflector constructed in a short segment of optical fiber that reflects particular wavelengths of light and transmits all others. This is achieved by adding a periodic variation to the refractive index of the fiber core, which generates a wavelength specific dielectric mirror. A fiber Bragg grating can therefore be used as an inline optical filter to block certain wavelengths, or as a wavelength-specific reflector.

Modulation is the process by which the characteristic of one wave (the carrier) is modified by another. Adding information into pulses of light.

Power Linearity
When changing the power level and measuring the differences (in dB) between actual and displayed power levels, the power linearity is ± half the span (in dB) between the maximum and the minimum value of all differences.

Stability is the extent to which a specified property, characteristic, or parameter of a substance, device, or apparatus, such as a fiber optic transmission system, remains fixed with the passage of time or with varying environmental conditions.
