Photodetectors for use in optical networks.
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.
OCT and sensor systems require high performance balanced photodetectors to increase system signal to noise ratio. Polarization sensitive OCT and similar applications require separate analysis of the two polarization components of a signal. The PBPD-001 is specially designed for use in such systems.
Simultaneously detecting the powers of two orthogonal polarization components is important for many sensor and measurement applications. A pigtailed polarization beam splitter coupled with two photodetectors can be used for such applications; however, this arrangement is bulky, troublesome to handle, and costly.
Simultaneously detecting the powers of two orthogonal polarization components is important for many sensor and measurement systems, to either obtain polarization related information or minimize polarization sensitivity.
The MZI-001 is a fiber pigtailed compact Mach-Zehnder interferometer, based on freespace optics, for detecting changes in optical frequency. The device comes with two fast photodetectors for the balanced detection of the two complementary outputs of the interferometer.
