APEX Technologies (booth 3146), a manufacturer of ultra-high resolution optical spectrum analysers (OSA), will display updated versions of its star products: including a compact high-resolution OSA, top-performance ultra-high resolution OSA and optical complex spectrum analyser (OCSA). By using robust and smart internal and external mechanics, the new analysers are extremely reliable, the company claims. Furthermore, with faster new electronic and new optical designs, the OSAs can provide not only high resolution, but also fast sweep, to satisfy customers’ requirements in C-, L- and O-band applications. The detailed spectrum and temporal information offered by APEX Technologies’ products opens the door to characterisation of a wide variety of photonic devices, like lasers, combs, advanced modulation formats, sensors and other components.
