BRISTOL INSTRUMENTS, INC., located near Rochester, NY, was founded in 2005 by three technical and marketing leaders of the now-defunct Burleigh Instruments. Together, this group has over 75 years of combined experience in the design, manufacture, and marketing of lasers and precision test instruments used in basic and applied research, engineering, and production test applications.
The company currently focuses on the scientific, fiber communications, and optical metrology markets. The scientific market consists of researchers at universities, government laboratories, and industry who are involved in fields such as chemistry, physics, and optics. The fiber communications market consists of R&D and manufacturing engineers who need to accurately test WDM components and transmission systems with respect to absolute wavelength. And, the optical metrology market consists of manufacturers that need to precisely measure critical physical dimensions of materials such as plastic films, medical membranes, glass tubing, and ophthalmic products.
The primary technology utilized by Bristol Instruments is optical interferometry. Detailed analysis of interference phenomena, a consequence of the wave properties of light, can result in a variety of precise measurements. In particular, Michelson and Fizeau interferometer-based technologies are employed to develop instruments that provide the reliable accuracy for which Bristol Instruments has become known.

Bristol Instruments, Inc. recently announced the introduction of its new 438 Series Multi-Wavelength Meter. This product measures the wavelength, power, and OSNR of as many as 1000 discrete optical signals. With key features such as high accuracy, fast measurement rate, straightforward operation, and rugged design, the model 438 provides the most precise, reliable, and efficient WDM wavelength testing available to meet the needs of the most demanding applications.
Bristol Instruments, Inc. has recently announced several improvements to its 871 Series Pulsed Laser Wavelength Meter. The model 871, which excels with an unsurpassed measurement rate of 1 kHz, now has a wavelength accuracy as high as ± 0.75 parts per million (± 225 MHz at 1000 nm). In addition, an integrated proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller benefits researchers who need active regulation of their laser’s frequency.
Bristol Instruments, Inc. recently announced an agreement with Photonics Solutions, a new distributor in the United Kingdom. Photonics Solutions is a leading independent UK supplier of optoelectronic products, and exclusively represent a limited number of cutting edge manufacturers, providing their customers with the highest quality products to meet both research and industrial applications.
Bristol Instruments, Inc. has recently hired Ms. Kristina Schanz to join its Sales and Marketing team. She will serve in the new position of Marketing Communications Manager.
Bristol Instruments, Inc. recently announced the addition of Mr. Scott Sandruck to its Sales & Marketing team. He will serve in the new position of European Sales Manager.
This optical thickness gauge answers the need for precise thickness information in the design and manufacturing of specialty plastic films, medical membranes, and ophthalmic products. This datasheet includes a detailed description of the series, as well as specifications. This optical thickness gauge features a straightforward operation, a rugged design, high accuracy, and exceptional reliability.
The 137 Series Optical Thickness Gauge includes a super-luminescent LED (SLED), an interferometer assembly, and a digital processor, all housed within a single chassis. It is able to provide accurate results within ± 1 µm (± 0.04 mils), and exceptional repeatability (standard deviation) as good as ± 0.05 µm (± 0.002 mils), to ensure that the measurements are well within the specified accuracy limits. With a rugged design and free upgrades for the software, these gauges are ideal for applications in manufacturing environments.
The new 871 Series Laser Wavelength Meter is designed to measure the absolute wavelength of pulsed and CW lasers. Available for operation from 375 to 1700 nm, the meter utilizes a unique Fizeau etalon design that guarantees a measurement accuracy of ± 1 ppm (± 300 MHz at 1000 nm).
This high-resolution laser spectrum analyzer identifies the spectral properties of both CW and pulsed lasers operating in the 375 nm to 12 µm wavelength range. Download the datasheet to learn more about the models available in the series and their unique features and specifications.
This datasheet contains information on features, specifications, areas of application, and more for Bristol Instruments' 671 Series High Accuracy Laser Wavelength Meter.
