Luna Technologies has enhanced its optical vector analyzer platform with the introduction of an external laser version, the OVA-EL, for optical component and subassembly testing applications. The all-parameter, single-channel analyzer tests passive optical components in the S-, C- and L-bands. When used with an Agilent 81640 or 81600 series external tunable laser, the device measures insertion loss, group delay, chromatic and polarization mode dispersion, polarization-dependent loss, optical phase error and time-domain information. It can be upgraded with the company's optical frequency domain reflectometer to measure tiny reflections in components and assemblies.
