Wavelength meter Resolution vs Optical Spectral Resolution

When discussing the characteristics of the laser characterization tool, a really common confusion occurs between the terms “Optical Spectral Resolution” and “Wavelength meter Resolution”. Indeed, both of these specifications contain the word “resolution” and are amongst the most common specification of these characterization tools, but are referring to two widely different characteristics. The aim of this article is thus to well define both of the specifications and illustrate them by an example to avoid any mix up between the 2….


High-Depth Optical Coherent Tomography (OCT)

In the last 25 years, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) has advanced to be one of the most innovative and most successful optical imaging techniques, reaching very high performance required for challenging applications like ophthalmic medicine, dermatology, angiography, and material analysis. OCT principle and domains The OCT technique is classically based on the principle of a Michelson interferometer, with a broadband light source as an input. The interferometric signature of this low coherence signal obtained with a Fourier Transform is a…
