Calibration of wavelength/optical frequency measurement instruments – Part 2: Michelson interferometer single wavelength meters
|Publication Date:||1 May 2011|
|ICS Code (Optic amplifiers):||33.180.30|
This part of IEC 62129 is applicable to instruments measuring the vacuum wavelength or optical frequency emitted from sources that are typical for the fibre-optic communications industry. These sources include Distributed Feedback (DFB) laser diodes, External Cavity lasers and single longitudinal mode fibre-type sources. It is assumed that the optical radiation will be coupled to the wavelength meter by a single-mode optical fibre. The standard describes the calibration of wavelength meters to be performed by calibration laboratories or by wavelength meter manufacturers. This standard is part of the IEC 62129 series on the calibration of wavelength/optical frequency measurement instruments. Refer to IEC 62129 for the calibration of optical spectrum analyzers.
