Description Optical Spectrum Analyzer
                                    The Q8381A/Q8383 is an optical spectrum analyzer of the
decentralized spectrum method
employing diffraction lattice monochrometor. its main
features are given below.
Wide dynamic range
Wide dynamic range in the Q8381A is obtained by an optical
design to suppress an
internal stray light level.
The range of 40 dB in a state 1 nm away from peak wavelength.
The range of 50 dB in a state 5 nm away from peak wavelength.
Wide dynamic range in the Q8383 is obtained by the adoption
of doubie-pass
The range of 55 dB in a state 0.5 nm away from peak wavelength.
The range of 65 dB in a state 1 nm away from peak wavelength.
High-speed measurement
High-speed measurement can be done by the adoption of the
high-speed drive system
which controls the rotation of the diffraction lattice.
0.8 seconds or less in 200 nm span.
1.5 seconds or less in 500 nm span.
Puise fight measurement
The Q8381A/G8383 incorporates the AMP system for high-speed
measurement of light
pulse under te s t By synchronizing measurement by the
external TTL signal, more stable
spectrum can be obtained.
Easy operation and abundant functions
Various aspects have been taken into consideration to make
measurement easier.
The panel key arrangement, softkey menus and basic key
functions can be specified in
the first hierarchy.
They include four types of spectral width measurement
functions, power monitor function,
cursor function, and various display (3-dimensional data,
dual screen, and super-impose).
Built-in high-speed printer
Measurement data can be easily output using a high-speed
thermal printer having a
printing speed of less than 8 seconds.
Enhanced memory function
3.5 inch floppy disks in accordance with MS-DOS* form at in
addition to 32 data memories
(battery backup) are equipped normally.
The measurement data by an outside computer can be easily
