(a) RMS value over 8 hours.
(b) The maximum of the frequency range is defined as the point where 0 dB noise attenuation is obtained. These noise eaters are designed to operate down to DC frequency. However, due to external factors (e.g. ambient temperature, vibration, spatial and/or polarization stability of the light source), the noise attenuation factor below 10 Hz is difficult to measure and quantify. Therefore our specifications are guaranteed at 10 Hz and above.
(c) Noise attenuation factor is the ratio of noise amplitude before and after the noise eater. It was tested at 3 mW input power with a noise amplitude of 5% of the input power level. See detailed noise attenuation plots on the Performance manual.
(d) This is the range of output power adjustment where the noise attenuation factor is guaranteed for a given input power level. If the output power is further reduced, the noise eater might not be able to completely reduce the noise in the signal. This specification does not include losses due to absorption.
(e) The maximum input power density and laser damage threshold are wavelength-independent. Additionally, the absolute maximum input power varies with wavelength; see the manual.
(f) Specified for a 1/e2 beam diameter.
(g) Extinction ratio is the ratio of the signal power at minimum attenuation to the signal power at full attenuation, regardless of the effective noise attenuation factor, when using the SMA modulation input.
(h) Rise time is measured on the rising edge of the output intensity from 10% to 90% of full output power.
