Boston Applied Technologies Inc.Request Info
 
The Nanona ultrafast and low-loss optical switch from Boston Applied Technologies Inc. (BATi) redirects the optical signal from one channel to another at speeds faster than 50 ns.

The Nanona switch is a solid-state switch operating in free-space architecture. It has lower optical insertion loss (<1 dB), much faster speed and more reliable switching compared to competing optical switching technologies.

The switches provide solutions to managing fiber optic connections, monitoring optical performance and sharing vital resources for a wide variety of applications in the  telecommunication, defense and government, medical and biotechnology, and instrumentation industries.

The Nanona switch is the newest addition to BATi’s Eclipse, Acrobat and Equinox product portfolio -- such as optical VOAs, polarization controllers and tunable filters -- for  telecommunications and instrumentation markets.

GLOSSARY
filter
1. With respect to radiation, a device used to attenuate particular wavelengths or frequencies while passing others with relatively no change. 2. See digital filter.
optical
Pertaining to optics and the phenomena of light.
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
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...
