Funding is requested to purchase Keysight N4357D 26.5 GHz single-mode light wave component analyzer (LCA) and associated source/voltage test units for high-speed membrane laser research, as well as other extreme photonic devices and integrated chip testing. The electrical and optical design of N4375D is optimized for lowest noise and ripple. In addition, this design makes the accuracy independent of the electrical reflection coefficient. Using the advanced measurement capabilities of the network analyzer, all S-parameter related characteristics of the device under test, like responsivity, ripple, group delay and 3 dB-cutoff frequency, can be qualified from 10 MHz to 25.6 GHz. The E5270B precision IV analyzer supports multiple SMU (Source/Monitor Units) for voltage/current sourcing and voltage/current measurement with the best in the class current measurement performance as low 1 fA. The N4375D LCA is based on the new 4-port N5222A PNA Series microwave network analyzer with high RF output power. This enables both small signal analysis and large signal analysis on device under test.
