Product information "PSGA-101 Polarization Measurement System"

1280-1620 nm; SOP Generation Accuracy ±1°; Azimuth & Ellipticity Angle Accuracy <0.25°; DOP Measurement Accuracy ±1%; PER Dynamic Range: >40 dB; PMD Measurement Range 0.001-10 ps, 0.001-400 ps; PDL Measurement Range 0-40 dB

General Photonics’ PSGA-101 polarization measurement system is the most accurate product on the market for analyzing PMD, PDL and other polarization-related properties of light sources and optical materials.

Based on General Photonics’ patented magneto-optic polarization generation and analysis technology, the PSGA-101-A is specially designed for fiber optic applications and can effortlessly accomplish multiple functions, including polarization state generation (PSG), polarization state analysis (PSA), polarization extinction ratio (PER) measurement, polarization dependent loss (PDL) measurement, and polarization mode dispersion (PMD) measurement, as well as birefringence measurement in spun fiber.

Another attractive feature of the PSGA-101 instrument is its large flip-top LCD graphic display design, allowing large viewing area on a compact, portable enclosure. Furthermore, a 2x20 character LCD is also included on the front panel for easy operation of the instrument for applications that do not require a graphic display.

The instrument comes with an internal tunable laser for PDL and PMD measurement up to 10 ps. It can also control tunable lasers from third parties via a GPIB port for measurement of larger PMD values. The instrument also features a VGA port for use with an external LCD graphic display of the user’s choice.
