FIGURE 1. Two-path interferometers include Michelson and Mach-Zehnder configurations. In this Michelson interferometer with single photodiode detection the sample and reference beams are split and recombined by the same beamsplitter (a). In the Mach-Zehnder interferometer with dual photodiode detection the sample and reference paths are recombined into a second optical combiner after passing through the reference delay and sample material (b).

INTERFEROMETRY: Emerging applications push receivers to higher speeds

Use of autobalanced detectors to monitor the sample and reference beams of an interferometric system delivers high bandwidth with improved gain and reduced noise for applications...
The spectral range of available laser diodes is steadily expanding along with higher powers especially in the near infrared. More manufacturers are now offering laser diodes in the blue and even in the green.

FIGURE 1. The impulse response (blue) of a 4-GHz receiver was measured with a 1-ps, 1530-nm pulse on a 50-GHz oscil­loscope. The step response (red) was then calculated by integrating the impulse response, which can be used to derive the eye diagram.
Detectors & Imaging

Photodetector impulse response yields eye-diagram information

The eye diagram of a photo­receiver is a key ingredient in assessing performance of an optical-communications network.
Fiber Optics

Tunable lasers enhance fiber sensors

Tunable lasers developed for telecommunications are well suited for use with fiber sensors, while existing high-volume manufacturing capabilities will help lower costs.

OPTICAL MOUNTING: Choosing the right optical mount

Selecting a mount for either manufacturing or laboratory use requires balancing size, ease-of-use, performance, and cost.
Scanning confocal etalon is used for routine analysis of laser spectra in Jeff Dixon’s laboratory. Output of an argon-ion laser is sampled by an angled flat mounted on the front of the confocal cavity mount (lower right). Electronic drive unit for the spectrum analyzer is positioned on top of an oscilloscope (background). Proper adjustment of the electronic drive unit and oscilloscope permit the longitudinal-mode spectrum of the argon-ion laser to be displayed.
