General Photonics’ POD module is an in-line polarimeter for low-cost, high-speed polarization characterization without interrupting data traffic. It outputs four voltage signals for calculating in microseconds both the degree of polarization (DOP) and the state of polarization (SOP) of the light passing through the device.
The POD polarimeter module comes with a preamplification board to provide analog signals for SOP/DOP calculation, feedback control, and computer interface. A calibration matrix is provided with every device for the calculation. Devices without preamplification board and calibration matrix are also available for OEM applications.
The POD polarimeter module is ideal for integration into polarization monitoring and polarization stabilization modules, or in polarization characterization instruments.
