General Photonics’ MPC-202 advanced multifunction polarization controller is specially designed to meet the requirements of coherent receiver performance tests.
MPC-202 combines General Photonics’ award winning PolaRite™ II/III polarization controller with proprietary polarization control algorithms to achieve a wide range of polarization control functionalities, including high-speed quasi-uniform rate polarization scrambling, random-rate polarization scrambling with Rayleigh rate distribution, discrete-state polarization scrambling with high slew rate, sine, square, and triangle-wave SOP (state of polarization) modulation, and manual polarization control functions.
In particular, the “Tornado” quasi-uniform rate polarization scrambling function can achieve a high SOP scrambling rate of up to 60,000 revolutions/s (more than 360 krad/s) with a narrow rate distribution clustered around the highest rate.
In short, the MPC-202 is an ideal tool for production or laboratory testing of polarization related functions and parameters, including passive/active component characterization, performance tests of fiber optic interferometers, sensor systems, RF photonics systems, etc. The quasi-uniform rate high-speed scrambling function is particularly useful for SOP tracking speed testing of coherent receivers, and the square wave SOP modulation function is ideal for SOP recovery time tests.
