Bristol Instruments, a leader in optical interferometer-based instrumentation, offers products that are used in the scientific research, fiber communications, and optical metrology markets. Bristol's flagship products accurately characterize the wavelength and spectral properties of lasers used by researchers at universities, government laboratories, and industry. They are also used for the development and production testing of laser transmitters used in optical fiber communications. In addition, Bristol Instruments provides an optical interferometer-based system to measure the physical thickness of materials such as plastic films, medical membranes, and ophthalmic products.
The most complete laser wavelength and spectral analysis from the visible to the mid-IR.
These products precisely analyze a laser’s wavelength and spectral properties. A family of wavelength meters provides accurate information for scientists and engineers who need to know the exact wavelength of their CW or pulsed lasers that operate from 350 nm to 12 μm. A unique laser spectrum analyzer that operates as both a high-accuracy wavelength meter and a high-resolution spectrum analyzer is also available.
Optical wavelength meters to test your WDM signals with the confidence that results from reliable accuracy.
Bristol Instruments offers a family of wavelength meters designed for WDM testing applications. These instruments are ideal for the precise wavelength characterization of tunable WDM lasers, DFB lasers, and VCSELs. Multi-wavelength meters are also available for testing the wavelength, power, and OSNR of WDM signals.
The most reliable thickness measurement of specialty plastic films, medical membranes, and ophthalmic products.
The evolution of items such as plastic films, balloon catheters, medical tubing, and contact lenses has driven the development of more precise manufacturing processes. These advanced manufacturing requirements are addressed by Bristol’s optical thickness gauge. Proven interferometer technology is used to provide the most accurate and reliable thickness measurement available. This system also has the advantage of being able to measure the thickness of a single layer or multiple layers simultaneously.
