CHINO, Calif., Dec. 9 -- General Photonics is offering PolaFlex, a new turnkey instrument that can generate and maintain any desired state of polarization (SOP), regardless of the input SOP. It combines General Photonics’ patented polarization controller, inline polarimeter and control algorithm into an instrument that functions as both a deterministic polarization state generator and a polarization analyzer.
   The generated SOP and the corresponding Poincare Sphere can be readily displayed on a computer screen via USB interface. To generate a desired SOP, a user may simply input the corresponding Stokes parameters using the front panel keypad. The instrument automatically searches for the SOP and maintains it against input SOP fluctuations. Or the user can scan through six distinct SOPs (0°, 90°, +/- 45°, RHC and LHC) sequentially with user-defined speed for Mueller matrix calculations, or select any of the six states with the touch of a button. Furthermore, uses may select multiple predetermined SOP traces for the instrument to generate, emulating certain common polarization variations.

The PolaFlex can also function as a polarization scrambler, generating random SOP scans with user-defined scanning speed. With internal polarization controller disabled, PolaFlex can also function as an inline polarimeter, displaying the instantaneous SOP and DOP of the input light beam.
