Optical Calibration Laboratory capability summary

We can calibrate your equipment and issue a calibration certificate for:

Optical power meter calibration
Absolute optical power meter calibration at wavelengths from 350 to 1650 nm in 5 nm steps, with least uncertainty of 0.02 dB / 0.4 % at a power in the range of +3  to - 60 dBm / 10 uW - 1 nW and wavelength accuracy of 0.5 nm, using non-coherent light. In accordance with TIA-455-231 / IEC 61315 / FOTP 231 Calibration of Fiber Optic Power Meters. 

Optical power meter or attenuator linearity calibration
Linearity from +10 to -70 dBm with least uncertainty of 0.01 dB / 0.2 % at 1310 & 1550 nm, using non-coherent broadband light.
Linearity from 0 to -70 dBm with least uncertainty of 0.01 dB / 0.2 % at 650 & 850 nm.
Linearity from +10 to -60 dBm with least uncertainty of 0.1 dB / 0.7 % at 850, 1310, 1550 nm, using coherent laser light.

Optical return loss calibration
Optical return loss calibration at 850, 1310, 1550 nm with least uncertainty of 0.01 dB / 0.2 % in the range 0 to - 60 dB.

Optical light source wavelength calibration
