  • Polarization Controller
Jan 2016
General Photonics Corp.Request Info
OLCHING, Germany, Jan. 14, 2016 — The PSY-201 PolaFlex deterministic polarization controller from General Photonics Corp. adjusts the polarization of light in 9/125-μm single-mode fibers in a targeted manner for use in optical transmission or fiber sensors.

A polarization controller is combined with an in-line polarimeter with sophisticated control algorithms. The PolaFlex modulates fluctuations in the input polarization to achieve the desired and stabilized polarization state at the instrument's output.

The device can also be used as a polarimeter to determine the current state of polarization and measure the degree of polarization. As a polarization synthesizer, it produces any state desired or runs programmed polarization traces on the Poincaré sphere. Alternatively, the PolaFlex can be used as a polarization scrambler.

Laser Components GmbH is the distributor.

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...
