Passive network components are network components that usually do not require any electrical power input. Key passive components include couplers/splitters, wavelength-selective splitters (WDM, CWDM, and DWDM), circulators/isolators, and optical switches. They are available for both single-mode (SM) and multi-mode (MM) applications. These parts are crucial for building a powerful and error-free network. Using unsuitable passive components at key locations in a network could have a quick and noticeable detrimental effect on system 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.
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.
Le SigmaLinks 2000 est un système flexible et rentable de transport optique de multiplexage, de-multiplexage et de commutation de données haut-débit pour les applications de stockage, vidéo et voix.
The polarization maintaining filter coupler can either split the light from an input PM fiber between 2 output PM fibers, or can combine light signals from 2 PM input fibers into a single PM output fiber.
General Photonics Manual Variable Optical Delay Line VDL-001 erzeugt optische Verzögerungen bis 600 ps (~18 cm).
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.
