POLARIZATION SWITCH

Photonics Spectra

Phoenix Photonics Ltd.Request Info
 
POLARIZATION SWITCH The all-fiber polarization switch from Phoenix Photonics Ltd. is designed to provide a flexible and compact means of converting polarization for applications in telecommunications, test and measurement, and optical sensing. The switch converts an input linear state aligned on the input polarization-maintaining-fiber axis to either of the orthogonal output axes. It displays low losses and virtually zero backreflection, and it is available for use at wavelengths of 1300 to 1610 nm. The company says that the switch can be adapted to operate at other wavelengths.

GLOSSARY
polarization
With respect to light radiation, the restriction of the vibrations of the magnetic or electric field vector to a single plane. In a beam of electromagnetic radiation, the polarization direction is the direction of the electric field vector (with no distinction between positive and negative as the field oscillates back and forth). The polarization vector is always in the plane at right angles to the beam direction. Near some given stationary point in space the polarization direction in the beam...
