Avoiding Detrimental & Misleading Results in Laser & Optical Spectrum Analysis

Webinar Recording 

No longer is the usage of lasers and optical solutions limited to visible laser pointers and traditional communications applications. Optical solutions have expanded into a variety of fields, from guiding a new generation of autonomous vehicles (LiDAR) and enabling facial recognition for smartphones to identifying greenhouse gasses and detecting cancer in the medical field.

Many of these applications require precise analysis of the optical light spectrum displayed (or not displayed) on the test instrument. The analysis techniques behind understanding spectral behaviors is a science in itself; what is not shown on an instrument can be as misleading to your results as what is shown, and vice versa!

Join us in this webinar where our experts discuss:

  • How researchers and engineers can avoid relying on false or misleading results when using an optical spectrum analyzer
  • An overview of spectral measurement technologies
  • Examples from Yokogawa’s 3+ decades of spectral analysis experience
  • Special guest speaker Jean-Christophe Gauthier from Laval University will share revealing results from advanced research projects, including:
    • Characterization of a MIR supercontinuum (SC) source
    • Visualization of the CO2 lines @4.3µm with nitrogen purge
    • Fiber-Bragg Grating (FBG) characterization in the MIR
    • Development of a 3.9µm fiber laser
  • Our new breakthrough OSA with a maximum wavelength limit of 5.5 um – be the first to preview!
