SANTEC offers an ultra-broadband spectral equalizer (λEqualizer) at 900nm to 1750nm based on LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon).
Product name： Lambda-Equalizer
Module code： LEQ-1000
SANTEC, a leading design and manufacturer of tunable lasers, optical instruments, OCT products, and fiber-optic components, has introduced an ultra-broadband spectral equalizer (λEqualizer) at a wavelength of 900nm to 1750nm based on LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon). The λEqualizer achieves a wavelength resolution of 2nm with an optical attenuation range of 100% to 1%. Optical single mode fibers are available for the optical input and output ports. The λEqualizer was developed using a WSS (wavelength selective switch) technology in fiber-optics and the LCOS based SLM (spatial light modulator) technology. The unique “No-moving parts” feature provides excellent reliability in field and precision wavelength managements compared with a conventional two-dimensional micro-mirror device.
An ultra-broadband spectral equalizer is very important in various industrial applications such as astrophysics, spectroscopy and laser sensing applications. An arbitrary spectral light passed from the λEqualizer can be applied for various emulations and calibrations of light sources.
