Optical Wavelength Meter

This page of equipments section of Test and Measurement World covers Yokogawa Optical Wavelength Meter.It mentions features of AQ6150 Optical Wavelength Meter from Yokogawa. Other vendors of Optical Wavelength Meter are also mentioned.

Optical radiation: The EM radiation which falls between 100 nm to 1 mm is referred as optical radiation. Within this range, 400nm to 800nm band is visible to the naked human eye.

The device which measures wavelength of optical signal with extreme accuracy is known as Optical Wavelength meter. Yokogawa optical wavelength meter measures with picometer and sub picometer accuracy with the help of peak value of optical signal.
