A wide-bandwidth, sensitive O/E converter for characterizing lightwave systems and components, the Agilent / HP 11982A combines a PIN photodetector with a low-noise dc-coupled preamplifier to create a general-purpose front end. It can be used with Agilent spectrum analyzers, oscilloscopes, bit-error-rate testers (BERT), and network analyzers, as well as with other manufacturers’ instrumentation. It covers wavelengths from 1200 to 1600 nm and bandwidths from dc to 15 GHz. With 300 V/W conversion gain and 0.05 percent input optical reflections, it significantly improves the sensitivity of the measurement system. The converter comes with a calibration chart of instrument-specific data for making corrected frequency response measurements
