Agilent Releases Analysis Software
The Photonic Foundation Library is an enhancement to the Agilent 8164A Lightwave Measurement System, consisting of Agilent's established range of tunable lasers, the series 8162 and 8163 power heads and sensor modules, and the 8166A Lightwave Multichannel System. The software seamlessly integrates into Agilent VEE and National Instruments LabVIEW and Lab Windows graphical programming environments. The library also features proprietary processes to improve measurement accuracy of the most critical DWDM1 parameters. In addition, a pseudo-real-time operating mode enables users to explore changes in a given filter curve to adjust the device's wavelength performance.
