Optical Domain Signal Analyzer
Project Award Date: 06-01-1999
Researchers are working to develop an optical domain signal analyzer which will provide high resolution analysis over a wide optical bandwidth. The optical domain signal analyzer broadly includes an optical filter for providing wavelength samples of a received optical signal, a dispersing element for receiving the samples and dispersing the samples, a detector for receiving the dispersed signal and for providing electrical signals representative of the dispersed sample, and a processor for receiving the electrical signal and calculating the characteristics of the spectrum.
The project's objective is to provide an improved optical domain signal analyzer for providing for high resolution and wide bandwidth testing of an optical signal.
