Bristol Instruments Introduces New Optical Wavelength Meter Covering the Broad Range of 700 to 1650 nm

VICTOR, NEW YORK February 16, 2022 –Bristol Instruments is pleased to announce the introduction of the 238 Series Optical Wavelength Meter. This system is designed for the precise wavelength characterization of tunable transmitter lasers, DFB lasers, and VCSELs used in a wide variety of applications including fiber-optic communications, data storage and 3D sensing.

The 238 Series features a broad operational range from 700 to 1650 nm. Two versions are available: The model 238A provides the most precise wavelength accuracy of ± 0.3 pm; and the model 238B, with an accuracy of ± 1.0 pm, is well suited for less exacting requirements. Both models feature continuous calibration with a built-in laser wavelength standard to provide the utmost confidence in your test results. A rugged opto-mechanical design ensures long-term reliable operation that is backed by an industry leading five-year warranty.

“We are committed to expanding our product lines to meet the evolving needs of our customers,” said Nick George, Marketing Manager at Bristol Instruments. “With the addition of the 238 Optical Wavelength Meter, we offer broad wavelength coverage combined with the reliable accuracy that is a hallmark of Bristol’s products.”
