Agilent 86038B Photonic Dispersion and Loss
Analyzer accelerates development of the next
generation networks
If you are involved in optical communications design or
manufacturing, whether at component, subsystem or
system level, you know the challenges you face are
complex. These challenges are driven by the use of
higher data transmission rates (10 Gb/s and 40 Gb/s),
dense and coarse wavelength division multiplexing
(DWDM or CWDM), and wide wavelength range.
Overcoming dispersion is a major complication in
deploying and upgrading 10 Gb/s and 40 Gb/s
networks. Chromatic dispersion can limit the
performance of optical components and signals. This is
a problem at 10 Gb/s and a bigger one at 40 Gb/s. Like
chromatic dispersion, polarization mode dispersion also
degrades fiber optic transmission performance. It is
caused by birefringence in the optical transmission
medium, and causes polarization modes of a signal to
travel at different group velocities. The precise
characterization of dispersion and loss properties for
fibers, components and systems becomes mandatory at
data rates above 10 Gb/s.
The 86038B Photonic Dispersion and Loss Analyzer
provides the required accuracy and repeatability for
10 Gb/s and 40 Gb/s system reliability.
The value that the Agilent 86038B Photonic Dispersion
and Loss Analyzer offers is its ability to perform highly
accurate measurements of group delay (GD) and
chromatic dispersion (CD), differential group delay
st
nd
(DGD) and 1 and 2 order polarization mode dispersion
(PMD), insertion loss (IL) and polarization dependent
loss (PDL) with a single set-up and connection for
minimum test uncertainty and time to increase
throughput and reduce cost of test. The 86038B is the
ideal solution for R&D and manufacturing requirements
for measurement of optical fiber, dispersion
compensating gratings, DWDM and CWDM
components, amplifiers and links.
Agilent has always been relentless in helping you meet
your design challenges. Using an innovative technique
developed by Agilent, enhancing the industry-standard
modulation phase-shift (MPS) technique, the 86038B
achieves best-in-class accuracy and repeatability with

allows optimizing the wavelength resolution to your
needs and provides both high resolution and low trace
noise at high speed. The 86038B also offers a real-time
data update mode (continuous sweep) for fine-tuning
devices.

Agilent 86038B
An innovative solution for
simultaneous dispersion and
loss measurements
Highly accurate and repeatable
Group Delay (GD) and
Differential Group Delay (DGD)
measurements
The 86038B was designed for a wide
range of test needs including optical
fiber, dispersion compensators,
wavelength-dependent components,
amplifiers and systems.
The 86038B uses the industrystandard Modulation Phase Shift
(MPS) method for both GD/CD and
DGD measurements. This
implementation of the MPS method
delivers both high GD and wavelength
resolution. The basic method is
standardized in IEC 60793-1-42. The
method is documented for DGD and
PMD in other standards such as
IEC 61280-4-4. This is the one method
that can determine a DGD value from
measurements only at that
wavelength, allowing high resolution
with low noise.
The 86038B Photonic Dispersion and
Loss Analyzer is based on the Agilent
N5230A Performance Network
Analyzer (PNA-L) and Agilent 81600B
tunable laser source. The PNA-L
provides low-noise phase and
amplitude measurements and flexible
choice of modulation frequency from
5 MHz to 2.5 GHz for optimizing to any
dispersion level and wavelength
resolution. The Agilent 81600B
provides specified wavelength
accuracy and stability, even during
high-speed sweeps.
Polarization-dependent measurements
are achieved with optics that minimize
the wavelength dependence and
maximize the reproducibility. An
optimized choice of polarization states
and selectable use of six input
polarization states provide optimum
accuracy of the results obtained by
matrix analysis, even over very wide
wavelength ranges. A new analysis
algorithm is used to decouple the
influence of DGD and PDL.
The Enhanced PDL and Loss Option
adds Agilent’s highest performance
power sensors to the instrument for
sensitive optical power detection with
minimum polarization dependence.
This delivers the PDL accuracy familiar
from Agilent’s industry standard
spectral loss and PDL measurement
solutions based on a tunable laser and
optical power meters using the
Mueller Matrix method.
The 86038B uses fast swept
measurements that are ideal for
manufacturing. On the manufacturing
floor, success depends on high volume
throughput, fast ramp-up and reduced
cost of test. Trust in your results is
vital. The MPS method used on the
86038B avoids sensitivity to thermal
drifts and mechanical vibrations. And
the Drift Correction feature assists in
obtaining repeatable and stable
measurements even in an unstable
environment.
Advanced polarization analysis
The 86038B Photonic Dispersion and
Loss Analyzer uses swept or stepped
wavelength measurements with 4 or 6
input polarization states in
combination with matrix analysis.
Besides DGD, PMD and PDL, this
nd
provides complete PMD vector and 2 order PMD and the top row of the
Mueller Matrix. The exported matrix
data can be used to extract TE and TM
spectra, polarization-dependent
wavelength (PDW) of filters and
determine the contribution of GD
ripple to DGD.
Page 3 of 10
CD measurements
automatically corrected for
PMD
CD measurements can vary with the
polarization of the light due to DGD,
which limits the accuracy of the
measurement. The inherent
uncertainty can be up to half of the
differential group delay. The 86038B
takes advantage of multiple sweeps at
distinct states of polarization to
evaluate the impact of DGD on the
group delay and remove it, allowing
the system to produce group delay and
CD traces that are free of the effects
of DGD.
Fast and accurate length
measurement
In a few seconds, the fiber or device
length can be determined, short or
long. The measurement, according to
the standard IEC 60793-1-22 and using
the modulation frequency range of the
86038B supports determination of CD
and PMD coefficients of fiber, the
dependence of dispersion on length.
Excellent optical resolution for
narrow band devices
The 86038B Photonic Dispersion and
Loss Analyzer can perform
measurements with modulation
frequencies as low as 5 MHz with
wavelength steps of 0.1 pm. The
extremely low noise floor on the
PNA-L combined with phase dynamic
accuracy corrections enables
measurements with high accuracy and
repeatability at low modulation
frequencies. The very high-resolution
capability of the 86038B enables
measurements of group delay ripple.
Optical phase
Optical phase traces are also
calculated as the integral of GD.
Deviation from linear or quadratic
phase are easily displayed, similar to
GD ripple.
High speed dependable
measurements
The 86038B allows fast group delay,
chromatic dispersion and insertion
loss measurements in sweptwavelength mode. The high-speed
measurements minimize
environmental influences that affect
accuracy. A continuous sweep mode
that provides real-time data update is
also provided for fine-tuning of devices
in R&D and manufacturing.
Extremely high wavelength
accuracy
The high absolute and relative
wavelength accuracy derive from the
Agilent 81600B tunable laser with
internal wavelength monitoring and
control. Especially important for swept
measurements of devices with high
CD, the 81600B wavelength accuracy
is also specified during swept
wavelength measurements, using
triggers for synchronization with the
analyzer.
If needed, further enhanced absolute
wavelength accuracy is available
using the Agilent 86122A
Multiwavelength Meter to
automatically measure and offset the
tunable laser source’s output
wavelength. The 86122A can be
ordered as an option on the 86038B.
The 86122A can also be used for other
measurement purposes when not
being used for 86038B measurements.
Wide dynamic range
The 86038B has a dynamic range that
can easily measure optical
transmission amplitude characteristics
of optical filters and other devices.
Furthermore, the 86038B can also
measure group delay and chromatic
dispersion characteristic over a wide
dynamic range. If required, the lowSSE output port of the tunable laser
can be used to measure filter to high
levels of wavelength isolation.
Easy to use solution for R&D
and high volume
manufacturing
This instrument is a stand-alone,
compact bench-top solution, ideal for
either a space-constrained R&D lab or
manufacturing floor. The 86038B has
an easy-to-operate user interface
designed to meet the individual needs
of R&D and manufacturing
environments. Measurements can be
acquired with the touch of a button.
The 86038B is designed for high
throughput measurements over an
entire wavelength band. The option for
up to 4 ports enables automated
measurement of multiport
components in transmission or using a
coupler also in reflection. The 86038B
displays a maximum of eight traces
simultaneously.
Since manufacturing test equipment is
primarily used remotely, instrument
control must be easy, reliable and
robust. The 86038B offers complete
instrument control using .NET via LAN
interface. The LAN interface provides
for easy data storage via the network.
Extensive curve fitting and
smoothing algorithms for
group delay ripple analysis
The 86038B offers an extensive set of
data processing and smoothing
algorithms for post-processing of data.
Custom curve fitting or smoothing
algorithms can be easily imported into
the 86038B as well. Ripple analysis is
realized from the residual difference
between original and fit data. The data
can also be easily exported for data
processing and smoothing.
Drift Correction feature
provides excellent stability
The 86038B Photonic Dispersion and
Loss Analyzer has a unique and
powerful feature that can improve the
accuracy of the system when the
temperature of the room or the test
device is gradually changing. If
temperature is changing, the test
paths and DUT length change with it,
Page 4 of 10
and the phase from which relative
group delay is calculated also drifts.
To reduce the drift, select the drift
correction feature.
Real-time Port Monitor for
connection, alignment and
stability check.
The real-time port monitor allows
observation of the loss and group
delay in real time at fixed wavelength.
It is a practical tool for coupling and
alignment processes. Also with the
real-time port monitor function the
device stability and connection can be
verified prior to the measurement
process.
Continuous trigger sweep
mode provides real time update
of data
This mode simplifies fine-tuning,
calibration and configuration of
components.
