Polarizers - Fiber Optic

Key Features

  • Rugged & compact housing
  • SM, MM, PM and fiber combinations available
  • Miniature sizes available
  • Wide range of available wavelengths
  • High extinction ratio

Description

Fiber Optic Polarizers are designed to polarize the output from a light source or fiber and launch it into an output fiber. These polarizers typically consist of input and output collimators with a plate polarizer in between. Broadband polarizers are used, so the power extinction ratio is maintained for up to several hundreds of nanometers. The same polarizer, for example, may be used for 1300 nm to 1600 nm. The power extinction ratio is the ratio between maximum and minimum output power as the input polarization state is changed.

Applications

  • Fiber amplifiers
  • System polarization extinction ratio conditioning
  • Measuring polarization extinction ratio
  • Sensors
  • Integrated optics
  • Interferometric sensors
