Bandwidth requirements for modern communication infrastructures are accelerating the trend of implementing more and more fiber optic solutions in mobile and stationary networks. Our fiber optic range includes products that are required to build a fiber optical transmission path. These paths are used in all places where data or optical power are meant to be transmitted.
Our product portfolio includes components for private and public networks as well as ones for industrial applications. The focus is on customized solutions and products for use in local area networks (LAN), wide area networks (WAN), in-house and hybrid cabling, and fiber management systems. More specifically, we offer active and passive components, various fibers, different cables, patch cords, and pigtails as well as cable management systems.
General Photonics Manual Variable Optical Delay Line VDL-001 erzeugt optische Verzögerungen bis 600 ps (~18 cm).
The FST-001-B is a piezo-driven fiber stretcher with a long optical delay range of up to 3 mm. The device comes complete with a piezo driver packaged in a user-friendly small enclosure.
The FPS-003 all fiber phase shifter/modulator combines a wide modulation bandwidth (up to 60 kHz) with low half-wave voltages to create a long-range device that can be driven by standard function generators.
OCT and sensor systems require high performance balanced photodetectors to boost system signal to noise ratio. The BPD-003 is specially designed for OEM applications in such fields, engineered for low cost and small size as well as high performance.
GPCs’ fixed differential group delay lines eliminate the need for precise measurement of PM fiber lengths to add defined amounts of first order PMD to a system.
Winding a large fiber spool is easy, but making compact, low loss fiber coils requires attention, precision, and skill.
GPCs’ 2nd generation all fiber phase shifter/modulator provides phase shifts up to 65π with a much lower half-wave voltage (~2 volts as compared with 10-20 volts for the 1st generation phase shifter) at frequencies from DC to 20 kHz
A suite of advanced polarization test instruments specially designed for testing the quality of fiber coils ensures the consistent production of high performance coils. GPCs' PM coils can be wound with different winding patterns such as quadrupole, octupole, or other types to minimize the Shupe effect, which degrades the performance of a fiber gyro under...
The Faraday rotator mirror is a fiber optic polarization rotation mirror designed for fiber optic networks and measurement applications. The state of polarization (SOP) of the reflected light is rotated 90 degrees from that of the input light.
The VDL-002 is a miniaturized variable optical delay line designed specifically for OEM applications. With a delay range of up to 250 ps, this device is a superior replacement for the variable RF phase shifters inadequately adapted from the RF/wireless field for fiber optic communications.
General Photonics’ motorized variable optical delay line provides low cost, precision optical path length adjustment and delay scanning functionality. This addition to the MDL product line is specifically designed for OEM applications that require continuous scanning capability and a small footprint.
GPCs' motorized variable optical delay line provides precision optical path length adjustment of up to 560 ps, single-pass. Driven by a DC motor with an integrated encoder, the MDL-002 has a resolution of less than 0.3μm (1 fs).
