Fourier Transform and Laser characterization based on SWIFTS technology Laser Spectrum Analyzer - MICRO Spectra

This educational kit is to support the preparation of an educational experiment in the field of Fourier transform spectroscopy and LASER characterization.
A stand alone experiment dealing with Fourier transform spectroscopy, VCSEL laser sources is described based on the MICRO Spectra, an ultra-high resolution mini Laser Spectrum Analyzer using SWIFTS technology (SWIFTS : Stationary Wave Integrated Fourier Transform Spectrometer, French patents).
Other types of experiments such as optical coherence tomography, fibered bragg grating sensors, phase modulation, data processing in the Fourier domain, compressive sensing or laser source analysis are also presented.
