HighFinesse-Ångstrom Wavelength meters

WS/5 Precision

Wavelength measurements with highest accuracy

The WS/5 Wavemeter is a sensitive and compact wavelength meter for laser sources. It is capable of measuring pulsed and continuous laser sources. Both, optical elements and assigned electronics are housed in a compact, thermally isolated casing.

 Standard measurement range 350-1120 nm
 Relative accuracy 5*10-6
 Measurement speed 300 Hz (Data collection 600 Hz)
 Single integrated interferometer for compact design
 Capable of measuring cw and pulsed lasers
 Various options available


Easy Set-up

The wavelength meter is connected to the PC via the USB interface. After installation of the supplied software, the device directly is ready for measurement. There is no warm-up time under constant ambient conditions.

Guaranteed Future

The design of the WS/5 Wavemeter permits the integration of additional optical components and software modules, allowing custom solutions for customer specific application even years after purchase.
For further particulars on the available options we refer you to our » options page.

Spectral resolution (λ/Δλ) different designs possible: up to 20000 (10)
Coupling fiber diameter [µm] 400
Calibration Built-in calibration (11)
Calibration period >≤1 month (will be detected and done automatically) (11)
Warm-up time No warm-up time under constant ambient conditions (except IR-II:> 30 minutes warm-up time required) Otherw. until thermal and air pressure equilibrium is reached.
Dimensions L x W x H [mm] 360 x 120 x 120
Weight [kg] 2.8
Interface High-speed USB 2.0 connection
Power supply Power consumption <2.3 W, supply directly via USB cable; IR-II, IR-III: external power supply included; IR-I and WSU via USB or external power supply possible

(1) With multi mode fiber   (2) Only for standard range   (3) But not better than 5% of the linewidth
(4) According 3σ criteria   (5) Without autocalibration usage
(6) The cw power interpretation in [µW] compares to an exposure of 1s (generally the energy needs to be divided by the exposure time to obtain the required power)   (7) [µJ] interpretation for pulsed lasers; cw signals need more power in [µW] since the exposure is limited at IR-II devices   (8) For further information on IR-III devices see MID-IR section.
(9) Signal/noise in this case will be 5:1, thus averaging is required   (10) Not for IR-III, for IR-III λ/Δλ = 450   (11) Not for IR-III, external calibration source needed, e.g. SLR-1532
