Compact High-Resolution Laser Spectrum Analyzer

WIDE Spectra is a high-performance laser spectrum analyzer with wide measurement bands. Ideal for monitoring narrow-linewidth tunable laser emission over tens or hundreds of nanometers, it is suitable for both continuous and pulsed laser sources, from single pulse to quasi-cw, without any temporal artifact.
Thanks to smart SWIFTSTM Technology, WIDE Spectra has a steady calibration and can also operate as a multi-wavelength meter.
