Sweeping Systems

Characterize Passive Components in Shorter Measuring Times

Continuous, smooth wavelength modification (sweeping) is a special operating mode used by tunable lasers as opposed to gradual modification (stepping). Sweeping mode allows for significantly shorter measuring times than stepping mode, e.g. during wavelength-dependent characterization of passive components. Sweeping also opens new areas of application up to you, such as optical frequency domain reflectometry (OFDR) or scanning laser OCT.
