The LPA-9080 laser diode parameter analyzer introduced by ILX Lightwave Corp. has a power meter with 16-bit resolution and 12 photodiode input ranges from 50 nA to 10 mA. The analyzer's laser diode controller features adjustable compliance voltage and fast shutoff circuitry for laser diode protection. When used with SPA-9000 Windows-based software, the system can provide rapid, accurate characterization of light, current and voltage. LabView drivers can be downloaded from the company's Web site to customize applications. The company says L/I, V/I and other curves of up to 5000 data points can be generated in seconds.
