High-Resolution High-Rate Laser Spectrum Analyzer

ZOOM Spectra gives you access to high spectral resolution on a simultaneous bandwidth of a few nanometers. ZOOM Spectra is both a multi-wavelength meter (picometer accuracy) and a spectrum analyzer. It is the ideal tool for the characterization of your cw and pulsed lasers.
