Optical Test Equipment technology is used to display and evaluate optical radiation with the help of special components and devices. Light can be measured directly or used as excitation to perform measurements, such as in Raman spectroscopy or NIR spectroscopy. Due to the non-contact and fast measurement they provide, these systems are ideally suited for direct measurements during a process (PAT) and for measurements in the laboratory operations. Alongside complete systems and customer-specific solutions, Laser 2000 also offers individual components.
Another field in the area of Optical Test Equipment technology concerns test solutions to overcome challenges in the telecommunications environment. The applications for measurement technology in this field include optical level measurement, OTDRs, OFDR, WDM, inspection of plug end surfaces with microscopes, and bit error and protocol analysis on transmission systems, whether this be within xDSL, Ethernet, SDH, or OTN environments. For measurement technology in laboratories, we offer solutions such as interferometers, RL/IL test solutions, polarization controllers and analyzers, and optical switches.
