PLS-100

New! Polarized Light Source PLS-100

PLS-100
The PLS-100 is a light source with well defined polarization.
It features stable high output power while maintaining a high polarization extinction ratio (PER) of 45dB (typ.).

 
 
 

Overview

Combining PLS-100 and PEM-330 (Polarization Extinction Ratio Meter) provides an optimized system for PER measurement of polarization maintaining (PM) fiber optic devices in both R&D and production environments.

 

Features

  • Polarization extinction ratio, up to 45dB (typ.)
  • High output power and power stability
  • Wavelength range 1310 ±20nm or 1550 ±20nm

 

Applications

  • Alignment of polarization axis of optical devices
  • Connectorized PMF patch cord evaluation
