Wideband (L, C, S) light source for the third fiber transmission window was developed. It has replaced incandescent halogen lamp light source in grating monochromator to increase the input signal level during measurements. This replacement has resulted in measurement time decrease and dynamic range increase in narrowband FBG spectral measurements. The source is an offer for other fiber metrology equipment users.
