Bristol Instruments Improves its Laser Spectral Analysis Capability in the IR and mid-IR

VICTOR, NEW YORK May 31, 2018 – Bristol Instruments, Inc., a leader in optical interferometer-based instrumentation, announces the introduction of the new 771A-MIR Laser Spectrum Analyzer. The 771 product line includes a series of unique instruments that operate as both a high-accuracy wavelength meter and a high-resolution spectrum analyzer. The model 771A-MIR combines highest wavelength measurement accuracy and highest spectral resolution for IR and mid-IR laser applications.

The new 771A-MIR Laser Spectrum Analyzer measures the wavelength of lasers that operate between 1 and 5 μm to an accuracy of ± 0.2 parts per million. For wavelengths from 5 to 12 μm, the system’s accuracy is ± 1 part per million. This wavelength measurement accuracy, combined with spectral resolution as high as 2 GHz and optical rejection ratio greater than 30 dB, provides the most detailed information about a laser’s spectral properties in the IR and mid-IR.

“The 771 Series Laser Spectrum Analyzer provides the most advanced spectral characterization of virtually any laser,” said Dr. Brian Samoriski, Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “Bristol Instruments is excited to provide such tools for scientists and engineers to help ensure the most meaningful results for their experiments.”
