Newport Corp.'s FPA-15 and FPA-18 are high-performance benchtop fiber optic power amplifiers designed specifically for laboratory end users. They have high saturated optical power, a high small-signal gain, and what the company calls a very respectable noise figure. A large LED indicates the output power in decibels above a milliwatt, and a mechanically shuttered APC connector is used for the optical output. The company also is offering the FPA-35, a preamplifier designed for amplification of weak incoming signals.
