ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Phoenix Photonics, the UK-based optical fiber components specialist, has unveiled a new polarization control instrument as part of its expanding Firebird instrumentation range today at OFC. The exhibition marks the global launch of the new product and can be seen at Booth #1710 from 19 - 21 March, Anaheim Convention Center, CA.
The new polarization controller utilizes a novel technique which provides a user programmable state of polarization anywhere on the Poincare Sphere. The instrument itself is all-fiber, low loss and high extinction ratio. It has pre-selected facilities for user programming and will enable users to select any state, in order to programme and switch between pre-selected states, for example, programme rotating half-wave and quarter wave plates. It ensures maximum power throughput at the selected state and an in-built method to move the plane of output polarization.
The Firebird range, which currently provides precision polarization control products using proprietary fiber technology is part of the companyâ€™s widening portfolio of equipment for the global fiber optics market, which already consists of; Fiber Optic Polarizer and Depolarizers, Fiber Optic Differential Group Delay Line and Fiber Polarization Control Instruments.
