Photon Inc. introduced the CLEO/QELS 2000 New Product Award instrument, the LD 8900R Wide Dynamic Range Goniometric Radiometer for characterizing the angular radiation intensity of light. The LD 8900R provides direct real-time far-field measurements of light flux from any light-emitting surface, such as VCSELs, laser diodes, and optical components with an angular field-of-view of 144° and a resolution of .055°. The LD 8900R provides full three-dimensional views of light patterns accurately (>36 dB) in near real time. Measurement of the mode field diameter of optical fiber is also now possible in real time with greater than 5% accuracy. The LD 8900R is available with either a silicon detector or an InGaAs detector, and has a standard entrance aperture of 2 mm, with an optional 10 mm entrance aperture for use with large sources such as LEDs and LD bars. The LD 8900R is a modular unit designed for R&D, manufacturing, and custom applications, such as testing LDs at the wafer level.
