Bristol Instruments' 721 Series laser spectrum analyzer is designed to provide spectral information for scientists and engineers using IR sources such as quantum-cascade lasers for high-resolution spectroscopy, photochemistry, or optical sensing applications. It will work with virtually any continuous-wave or high-repetition-rate pulsed laser that operates from 1.3 to 11 µm. Absolute laser wavelength is measured with an accuracy of ± 0.2 parts per million (± 0.001 nm at 5 µm) with a resolution as high as 2 GHz.

Bristol Instruments Introduces Laser Spectrum Analyzer for
Infrared Lasers

Complete wavelength and spectral characterization is now available for CW and pulsed lasers that operate from 1.3 to 11 µm

Bristol Instruments, Inc., the leader in laser wavelength measurement technology, has introduced a laser spectrum analyzer for scientists and
engineers who need to know the spectral characteristics of their infrared lasers. Now, researchers using sources such as quantum cascade lasers for high-resolution spectroscopy, photochemistry, or optical sensing applications can achieve more meaningful experimental results with the wavelength and spectral information provided by this new product.

The 721 Series Laser Spectrum Analyzer will work with virtually any CW and high-repetition rate pulsed laser that operates over the range of 1.3 to 11 µm. Absolute laser wavelength is measured to an accuracy as high as ± 0.2 parts per million (± 0.001 nm at 5 µm), and the laser's spectrum is determined to a resolution as high as 2 GHz. What's more, it does this with an unprecedented level of reliability and convenience.

"The 721 Series Laser Spectrum Analyzer provides the capability that researchers working at infrared wavelengths have needed for quite some time," said Dr. Brian Samoriski, President of Bristol Instruments. "This one instrument measures the wavelength and the spectrum of infrared lasers, whether they operate as CW or pulsed. This is particularly important for those who work with quantum cascade lasers."
