Speckle patterns from a multimode fiber can cause problems in many applications that require uniform, stable light distributions at the fiber output. General Photonics’ MMS-201 multimode scrambler is specially designed to solve this problem.
Based on a General Photonics proprietary technology, the MMS-201 effectively randomizes multimode speckle patterns over time at a high frequency over 20 kHz. The light distribution at the output appears uniform and stationary when viewed by cameras or detectors with averaging times >80 ms.
In addition, the all-fiber optical path minimizes the scrambler’s insertion loss. The fiber used for this device undergoes a special surface treatment to prevent breakage under stress, ensuring high device reliability.
The MMS-201 can improve performance in various applications including DNA sequencing, multimode fiber sensing and test and measurement of multimode fiber devices.
