Features

GaAs and InGaAs Versions

Model 1580 (shown) utilizes a GaAs diode providing wavelength coverage from 780-870 nm. Model 1544 utilizes an InGaAs diode to provide spectral coverage from 500-1630 nm for singlemode fiber and 780-1630 nm for multimode fiber.

Ultra-clean Pulse Response

The clean response and 32 ps rise time make these devices especially well-suited for time-domain characterization of 10-Gbit/s components. The high gain and gradual, well-behaved roll-off of the frequency response also make them useful for frequency-domain measurements.

Models 15X4-A/B typical pulse and step response (inverted). NOTE: Pulse response measured on a 20-GHz oscilloscope with a 100-fs optical pulse. Step response calculated from pulse response.

Switchable DC-Coupled or AC-Coupled Output

The -B versions of these photoreceivers include a DC-Coupled option so they give response all the way down to DC. At the touch of a switch, you can select the traditional AC-coupled output with a 10-kHz cutoff or DC-coupled mode.

Typical Frequency Response - Model 1580-A

Typical Frequency Response - Model 1544-A

Applications

Applications for these photoreceivers include:

  • Characterizing 10-Gbit/s components, including BER testing and generating eye diagrams
  • Characterizing the frequency or time responses of pulsed lasers, modulators, and transmitters
  • Characterizing pulse propagation through dispersive optical systems
  • RIN measurements
  • Heterodyne experiments
  • Precision timing/triggering

Single-mode or Multi-mode Fiber-optic Connector Options

Model 1544 has single-mode fiber while Model 1544-A/B-50 has a 50/125-µm core multimode fiber and Model 1580 comes standard with a 62.5-µm core multimode fiber.
