VICTOR, N.Y., March 1, 2016 — Bristol Instruments Inc. has announced the 871 Series of laser wavelength meters, measuring the absolute wavelength of pulsed and CW lasers. A measurement rate of 1 kHz enables the wavelength characterization of individual laser pulses, with the resulting time resolution of 1 ms providing detailed wavelength analysis of tunable lasers. The device uses a Fizeau etalon design to measure to an accuracy of ±1 ppm (±300 MHz at 1000 nm). The 871 series is available for operation from 350 to 1700 nm. Prealigned fiber optic input ensures optimum alignment resulting in uncompromised accuracy and automatic pulse detection triggers data collection for asynchronous operation.
