OPTICAL SPECTRUM ANALYZER
An Optical Spectrum Analyzer (or OSA) is a precision instrument designed to measure and display the distribution of power of an optical source over a specified wavelength span. An OSA trace displays power in the vertical scale and the wavelength in the horizontal scale.
The expanding field of optics related applications has created a vast variety of industries and organizations that require advanced optical spectral measurements for both R&D and manufacturing. These industries include telecommunications, consumer electronics, healthcare, life science/medical research, security, sensing, microscopy, and gas/chemical analysis, and environmental monitoring.
Yokogawa (formerly Ando) is the global leader in optical spectrum analyzers, delivering high quality, cutting edge technology with dependability, performance and flexibility for over thirty years.

Popular TELECOM wavelength Range of 600nm to1700nm makes this an ideal model for Telecommunications applications for both singlemode and multi-mode optics.
Dedicated SHORT wavelength Range of 350nm to1200nm allows this model to accurately measure the visible spectrum of 380nm to 780nm for bio-sciences and beyond. It is also a popular tool for measuring 1064nm Nd:YAG, DPSS Laser sources.
Unique LONG wavelength range of 1200 to 2400 nm makes this the world's first and only OSA specifically designed for use in advance applications such as Carbon Monoxide (CO), Carbon Dioxide (CO2) gas detection and LIDAR.
