Abstract
The ZOOM Spectra spectrometer is the first fully integrated system to benefit from the disruptive SWIFTS technology, providing a high-resolution high-rate solution for the characterization of lasers. It allows for the first time a dynamic real-time view of their behavior. The instrument is an alliance of integrated guided optics, groundbreaking nanotechnologies, microelectronics and advanced software. The device has been designed to be a rapid solution for checking the tuning of a laser, the existence of hopping modes and the correct suppression of a side mode. Their performances are particularly valuable for analysis of custom sources such as Distributed Feedback (DFB) lasers, Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs), External Cavity Lasers (ECL), or Optical Parametric Oscillator (OPO) sources.
