If you selected ‘’Save to disk and open’’ the file will be displayed in the application.


Note:  The iOLM file used in this example had 2 wavelengths (1310nm and 1550nm) and that the application created two .SOR files, one for the 1310nm and one for the 1550nm. This is because .SOR file can only support one wavelength per file.
