The 819xxA compact tunable laser source from Agilent Technologies Inc. offers an optical power output of 13dBm and a stimulated Brillouin scattering suppression feature that allows high-launch powers in optical fibers, enabling testing of nonlinear effects in fiber links.

The high output power allows the device to overcome losses and improve the test of all types of optical amplifiers and other active components, as well as broadband passive optical components, the company said. In addition, it lowers test costs by eliminating the need for an additional booster EDFA.

The device also features integrated dynamic wavelength and power control mechanisms that improve on the company's swept wavelength concept to assure accurate wavelength and power repeatability for broadband passive component test.

Prices start at $19,000 for the 81949A (1,520nm to 1,630nm) and 81989A (1,465nm to 1,575nm).
