Designed for swept-wavelength measurement of passive fiber-optic components, New Focus Inc.'s High Dynamic Range (HDR) power meter features a dynamic range of 70dB and offers a high sensitivity level between the wavelength range of 950nm to 1,630nm.

When used in tandem with the company's Model 6528 swept-wavelength laser, they enable real-time adjustment and testing of both C and L band components during manufacture, thereby increasing yield and throughput.

The HDR power meter was designed specifically for sweep speed of 100nm/s and uses a logarithmic circuit to provide its rated sensitivity and optical power. The device has a modular design that allows it to be easily integrated with the laser and data-acquisition system.
