HAMBURG, Germany -- Adaptif Photonics GmbH ( has announced the release of its series of high speed polarization measurement and control instruments. The first members of this family of products are now providing to customers a quantum leap in polarization measurement and management capabilities.

The A1000 High-Speed Polarization Analyzer is a compact unit that allows the measurement of the polarization of optical signals with up to megasample per second speed. Parameters such as the State of Polarization (SOP) and the Degree of Polarization (DOP) are easily obtained with microsecond resolution.

The A3100 Polarization Controller offers multiple functionalities supporting a broad range of applications that require polarization management. In particular:

  • as a SOP Stabilizer, the A3100 provides a stable output SOP, evenwithhigh-speed changes of the input SOP;

  • as a Polarization Scrambler, the A3100 varies the output SOP in acompletely random / pseudo random way; and

  • as a SOP Switch, the A3100 supports PMD/PDL testing of components inconjunction with the A1000 High-Speed Polarization Analyzer.

The polarizationNAVIGATORTM PC software integrates support for all applications with a powerful and convenient user interface.

Announcing the release, Dr Ralf Stolte, Adaptif Photonics’ CEO stated “customers are showing great enthusiasm for our new products - they are offering a functionality and ease of use well beyond that that has been available in the market until now, and are applying them in a broad variety of applications in both the communications and more traditional industries.”
