Fourier Transform and Laser characterisation based on SWIFTS technology Laser Spectrum Analyser – MICRO Spectra Educational Kit

The MICRO Spectra Educational Kit supports the preparation of an educational experiment in the field of Fourier transform spectroscopy and LASER characterisation.

A stand alone experiment dealing with Fourier transform spectroscopy, VCSEL laser sources is described based on the MICRO Spectra, an ultra-high resolution mini Laser Spectrum Analyser using SWIFTS technology (SWIFTS : Stationary Wave Integrated Fourier Transform Spectrometer, French patents).

Other types of experiments such as optical coherence tomography, fibred bragg grating sensors, phase modulation, data processing in the Fourier domain, compressive sensing or laser source analysis are also presented.
