Unsurpassed Accuracy World-Wide

The HighFinesse/Ångstrom WS8-2 is the unsurpassed high-end instrument for wavelength measurement of pulsed or continuous laser sources. It delivers superb absolute and relative accuracy required by cutting-edge scientific research, as well as industrial and medical applications. The unmatched precision of the WS8 series demonstrates the world leadership of HighFinesse-Angstrom wavelength meters.

Photonic Crystal Switch

Photonic Crystal Switch

The photonic fiber switch at the input offers endlessly singlemode operation, making it possible to measure lasers at wavelengths across the entire spectrum with the full accuracy of the wavelength meter.

Ease of Use & Customization

Icon Plug & Play via USB Connection Icon Customization Possible

The WS8 is connected to the PC via a USB interface and is ready for use as soon as the software delivered with the device is installed. The design enables the integration of additional options, allowing customized solutions to specific applications.

Typical Applications

The WS8-2 is the highest-end solution for wavelength monitoring and control with an absolute accuracy of 2 MHz and a wavelength deviation sensitivity of 0.2 MHz. The WS8-2 is subject to most stringent production, testing and certification procedures and therefore offers the maximum accuracy with state-of-the-art technology. It comes with the photonic crystal switch, enabling multichannel operation in the spectral range of the wavelength meter.

The 2 MHz accuracy presumes, that the device is supported by one of our calibration sources based on atomic spectroscopy (or another laser source with comparable accuracy).
