The AQ6373B is one of the latest additions to the AQ6370 Series of Optical Spectrum Analyzers. With the ability to provide high speed, accurate analysis of the short wavelength range between 350nm and 1200nm, this OSA is well suited for a broad range of applications. The AQ6373B can accelerate the development and manufacturing of short wavelength lasers, passive devices and LEDs as well as equipment that uses these devices for the biomedical, material processing, consumer product and telecommunications markets. With built in color analysis capabilities and remote command compatibility with the AQ6315, the AQ6373B provides an upgrade of capabilities, speed and performance for current AQ6315 users.
|7 sensitivity settings |
Can be selected according to test applications and measurement speed requirements.
|High dynamic mode |
Obtains a better dynamic range by reducing the influence of stray-light, which is caused when the input is a strong optical signal.
|Peak-Hold and External trigger mode |
Measure a pulse peak spectrum of a pulsed light signal. Often used in the transmission loop testing of telecommunication systems, and also in the low power measurement at the early stage of laser chip development to catch the peak power of a pulsed signal.
|■Multimode and single mode fiber on the same OSA |
■Small insertion loss variation at the input connector increases measurement repeatability.
■No damage connecting fibers because there is no physical contact.
■Supports SM, GI (50/125 μm, 62.5/125 μm) and large core fiber up to 800 μm.
Optical input structure
(note. AQ6373B uses a fixed connector)

Easy to control with an external PC and to build an automated test system.
■Improve the testing throughput of test systems
by the fast measurement, command processing, and data transfer speed.
|SCPI compatible |
The standard remote commands are compatible with SCPI, which is an ASCII text based standard code and format that conforms to IEEE-488.2.
AQ6317 Emulation mode
Supports the private remote commands of Yokogawa's best selling AQ6317 series and AQ6315 for users to easily upgrade from their current automated test environment.
Note. some commands may not be compatible due to changes in specifications and functions.
LabVIEW® driver available
By supporting the large core fiber input, the AQ6373B can efficiently get the LED light and measure its spectrum. The built-in color analysis function automatically evaluates a dominant wavelength and chromatic coordinates.
■Analysis of FP-LD (VCSEL) sources
Today FP-LD sources emitting in the visible (VIS) wavelength range are mounted into many different devices/systems used in different areas of application, such as:
405 nm FP-LD measurement (resolution setting: 0.01 nm)
VCSEL seen through a Scanning Electron Microscope
The 735383-A001 and A002 are unique adapters that reduces the numerical aperture (NA) of a connected fiber to half and is only applicable to the free space optical input structure on the Yokogawa AQ6370 series optical spectrum analyzers
