With its PDLE-10/11 series, OZ Optics provides polarization dependent loss (PDL) emulators that produce a specific amount of polarization dependent loss by transmitting the light through the device. The orthogonal polarizations will have different transmission properties resulting in PDL effect. Emulators are available with either a fixed PDL (between 0.05 and 10dB) or a variable PDL(between 0.05 and 10dB). Higher PDL values can be provided on request.

The PDLE-10/11 PDL emulators are used to simulate the PDL behavior of a passive component within an optical link. This includes devices like variable optical attenuators, optical modulators, array waveguides, fiber Bragg gratings, optical switches or fused couplers. One can thus examine the effects of PDL in a system and work out a PDL budget for an optical link.

OZ Optics also produces a polarization dependent loss meter, polarized stable sources, and polarization controllers, to further help study the effect of polarization in optical systems.
