HighFinesse’s products are appreciated for their high-end specifications, accuracy and longevity. The portfolio includes the WS8 wavemeter, the most accurate commercially available wavelength meter in the world. With this product, HighFinesse provides the ultimate laser characterization tool for scientific research, telecommunications industry and test applications.
HighFinesse’s product portfolio embraces wavelength meters, linewidth analyzers, spectrometers, calibration sources, and precision current sources for telecommunications, stable clock, test and measurement systems for commercial market.
The Wavelength Meter series allows to characterize the laser wavelength and spectral properties with superb absolute and relative accuracy.
The Standalone modification allows fuII use of the instrument without the need for a connection to a PC.
The Linewidth Analyzers are compact instruments for measuring, analyzing and controlling frequency and intensity noise of lasers.
The Laser Spectrum Analyzers offer the capability for an accurate simultaneous measurement of the center wavelength and the linewidth of a laser source.
The Calibration Sources are frequency stabilized, narrow linewidth laser sources for the calibration of the wavelength meters.
The Precision Current Sources deliver highly stable, low noise currents up to 200 A with ultrafast response.
The HighFinesse WF6 Series features ultra-high-speed measurement rates, the fastest commercially available. Excellent accuracy combined with maximum data acquisition rate of up to 76 kHz, allowing fast dynamics in the kHz range to be directly observed. Different measurement modes enable the user to record or view the frequency behavior of the light source. Combining high speed and superb precision, this instrument fulfils the most important requirements of optical transceiver manufacturers.
The HighFinesse Linewidth Analyzers are high-end optical instruments for measuring, analyzing and controlling frequency, linewidth and intensity noise of laser light sources. The real-time signal output offers the option for a fast feedback loop that can be used to actively reduce the frequency noise and the linewidth of the laser. The evaluation and control of these parameters play a crucial role for development, manufacturing and quality control of lasers for optical communications.
The robust HighFinesse high precision WS8-2 wavemeter, with the world leading Fizeau-technology, is the unsurpassed high-end instrument for wavelength measurement of pulsed and cw laser sources. It delivers superb absolute and relative accuracy. With high measurement performance, this product provides the most significant experimental results meeting the needs of scientific research as well as telecommunications industry and optical metrology.
