Calibration of wavelength / optical frequency measurement instruments – Part 3: Optical frequency meters internally referenced to a frequency comb
|Publication Date:||1 May 2019|
|ICS Code (Fibre optic systems in general):||33.180.01|
This part of IEC 62129 describes the calibration of optical frequency meters using an optical frequency comb as an internal reference. It is applicable to instruments measuring the optical frequency emitted from sources that are typical for the fibre-optic communications industry. It is assumed that the optical radiation will be coupled to the optical frequency meter by a single-mode optical fibre. This document is part of the IEC 62129 series on the calibration of wavelength/optical frequency measurement instruments. Refer to IEC 621291  for the calibration of optical spectrum analyzers, and refer to IEC 62129-2  for calibration of Michelson interferometer single wavelength meters.
