Product information "OVA 5000 Optical Vector Analyzers"
Single-scan, All-parameter Measurement; 1270-1610 nm; Wavelength Resolution 1.6 pm; Loss Measurement Dynamic Range 60, 80 dB; Loss Measurement Resolution ±0.002, ±0.05 dB
Luna’s OVA 5000 Optical Vector Analyzer™ is the fastest, most accurate and economical tool for loss, dispersion and polarization measurements of modern optical networking equipment – and the only instrument on the market that is capable of full and complete all-parameter linear characterization of single-mode optical components in a single scan. The OVA 5000 provides comprehensive component characterization of dispersion compensation modules, AWGs, Fiber Bragg Gratings and many other optical devices.
The OVA 5000 uses an interferometric method to directly measure the linear transfer function (Jones Matrix) and simultaneously measure its four complex elements at every wavelength. From this data, all standard linear parameter measurements can be extracted with the highest dynamic range and accuracy available. The result is an extremely fast, high-resolution and accurate device characterization that is ideal for silicon photonics and other integrated photonics devices.
The OVA 5000 simultaneously performs these optical component characterizations every 3 seconds:
Insertion Loss (IL)
Return Loss (RL)
Dependent Loss (PDL)
Group Delay (GD)
Chromatic Dispersion (CD)
Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD) / Second Order PMD
Min/Max Loss Due to Polarization
Jones Matrix Elements
Phase Ripple – Linear and Quadratic
With the optical frequency domain reflectometer (OFDR) option, the OVA 5000 optical vector analyzer can also operate as a high-resolution reflectometer , delivering reflectometer measurements with 20 μm sampling resolution, “zero dead zone” and high sensitivity (>95 dB). An optional polarization analysis software add-on allows the OVA 5000 to measure, calculate and display the response of an optical component to simulated input polarization states, eliminating the tedious and difficult task of polarization alignment.
