AMS Technologies introduces New Polarization Processor

AMS Technologies introduces New Polarization Processor (PresseBox) (Martinsried, ) The WaveShaper 2000S Polarization Processor from Finisar allows full control of amplitude and phase of both polarization components independently. Providing a difference in amplitude to both polarizations results in a Polarization Dependent Loss (PDL).

A difference in phase of the two polarizations provides a Differential Group Delay (DGD). The WaveShaper 2000S is ideally suited for systems test applications in which it stresses communication systems for various polarization effects. It can also operate polarization independently and serve with its 1x2 port configuration as a simple channel add/drop multiplexer.

The waveShaper 2000S Polarization Processor is a Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) based optical processor. The optical signal entering the device is split in two polarization components. Both, the "horizontal" and the "vertical" polarization component create separate images on the LCoS array and can be controlled for amplitude and phase independently. Careful control of the parameters allows generation of wavelength dependent PDL or DGD or alternatively polarization independent operation when both components are being controlled symmetrically.

The waveShaper 2000S Polarization Processor can stress communication systems by creating frequency dependent PDL and DGD.

We look forward to seeing you at the 21st LASER World of PHOTONICS in Munich from May 13 - 16, 2013.
