Bristol Instruments Introduces The Fastest Wavelength Meter For Pulsed Lasers

The new 871 Series Laser Wavelength Meter provides a measurement rate as high as 1 kHz, making it the fastest method to measure the wavelength of pulsed and CW lasers.

Bristol Instruments, Inc. has introduced the 871 Series Laser Wavelength Meter. This new system measures the absolute wavelength of pulsed and CW lasers with the reliable accuracy that is expected from Bristol Instruments. In addition, an unsurpassed measurement rate of 1 kHz enables the wavelength characterization of individual laser pulses, and the resulting time resolution of 1 ms provides the most detailed wavelength analysis of tunable lasers.

The 871 Laser Wavelength Meter uses a unique Fizeau etalon design to measure laser wavelength to an accuracy of ± 1 ppm (± 300 MHz at 1000 nm). This performance is guaranteed by automatically calibrating with a built-in wavelength standard. The 871 system is available for operation from 350 to 1700 nm. Pre-aligned fiber-optic input ensures optimum alignment resulting in uncompromised accuracy and automatic pulse detection triggers data collection for asynchronous operation. The model 871 operates with a PC, running under Windows, via standard USB and Ethernet interface. Measurement data can also be displayed using a web-based application with a tablet or smart phone.

“The new 871 Laser Wavelength Meter, with its 1 kHz measurement rate, will revolutionize many laser spectroscopy applications,” said Dr. Brian Samoriski, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Bristol Instruments. “Our customers will realize greater efficiency and greater detail in their experiments.”
