    The FOS Series Fiber-Optic Switch is a convenient way to connect up to eight lasers to a single fiber-coupled instrument. This switch is a self-contained micro-electromechanical (MEMS) switch that operates from 400 to 1700 nm.

  5. Fast Wavelength Meter Precisely Maps Laser's Tuning Behavior

    The 828B High-Speed Optical Wavelength Meter from Bristol Instruments is designed to provide accurate wavelength information at an unprecedented rate of 1 kHz. It revolutionizes WDM wavelength testing applications by reducing test times from hours to minutes. 

  6. 828 High-Speed Optical Wavelength Meter Datasheet

    The 828 Optical Wavelength meter has a speed measurement rate as high as 1 kHz. WDM components are more efficiently tested, and time resolution is much higher for a more detailed wavelength characterization. The 828B includes a SCPI interface via USB, Ethernet, or GPIB cable. With a rugged design, this device is perfect for manufacturing environments.

  7. Measuring Lens Assembly Thickness with the 157 Series Optical Thickness Gauge

    This technical note provides details on how the 157 Series Optical Thickness Gauge by Bristol Instruments can be used to determine the precise thickness of cemented or air-spaced achromatic doublets and triplets (as well as more complex lens stacks), and other lens assemblies.

  8. Contact Lens Metrology with the 157 Series Optical Thickness Gauge

    Bristol Instruments’ 157 Series optical thickness gauge is ideal for contact lens metrology. Its guaranteed performance over long periods of time and its ability to measure absolute thickness to an accuracy of + 0.1 µm and repeatability as high as + 0.05 µm make it an ideal solution for this application.
