AMSTERDAM – ECOC 2001 – TeraXion (www.teraxion.com), a manufacturer of value-added optical components, introduced today at ECOC the industry’s most exact gain flattening filter.TeraXion has been supplying volume orders of gain flattening filters to the market for over a year. Recent research and development efforts have led to a break-through in GFF manufacturing. These developments allow for the production of deep and complex gain equalizing profiles with error functions lower than +/- 0.1dB.Evolving high-performance DWDM networks require extreme power flatness levels across the entire transmission spectrum. The error function of a GFF contributes to inexact flattening of channel power gain within optical amplifiers. “Amplifier manufacturers requiring extreme levels of gain uniformity have been forced to accept larger tolerances from filter manufacturers. We are excited to be able to provide these manufacturers with the performance they have long desired,” said Etienne Gagnon, vice president, sales and marketing.TeraXion
