Large bandwidth.

The large spectral bandwidth brings you a short coherence length for high resolution inteferometry and optical coherence tomography.

Various wavelength ranges.

With a choice of multiple wavelength ranges you can find the model that fits in with your wavelength of interest.

Stable wavelength spectrum output.

Broad and smooth spectral profile enables consistent testing across a wide range of wavelengths.

Fully programmable.

Plug and play with USB or Ethernet connectivity; Controllable via the web-based GUI, CohesionUI, LabVIEW or SCPI commands.


Up to four channels in a single PXIe slot.

  • Broadband source for component spectral characterization
  • Coherence scanning interferometry
  • Optical coherence tomography
  • Passive optical component characterization (spectral response stimulation)
  • Spectral response with Optical Spectrum Analyzers (OSA)
