Paper Abstract

Dynamic range is a key performance parameter in spectrum analyzers. The dynamic range of a Bragg cell spectrum analyzer is generally limited by the dynamic range of the self-scanned photodetector arrays. During the past four years, advances in interferometric techniques have overcome this basic limitation demonstrating spectrum analyzers with nearly twice the dynamic range (measured in decibels) as their earlier counterparts. This paper will describe a system based on the interferometric architecture which is also small and compact in size.
