The PZ1 series are the high-speed members of Optiphase’s family of fiber stretchers. At the core of the PZ1 high-speed fiber stretchers is a fiber wound piezoelectric element for use in a wide range of optical interferometric measurement and sensing system applications.
Optiphase’s expertise in the design, manufacture and use of all-fiber interferometers has produced a unique multi-layer winding approach resulting in an enhanced modulation function while maintaining a high operational frequency. PZ1 high-speed fiber stretchers are available with single mode (SM), commercial polarization maintaining (PM, Panda or Bowtie) or SM reduced cladding (RC) fiber types
PZ1 high-speed fiber stretchers deliver a high performance to cost ratio, exceeding all other known competitive devices. The compact and low-profile form factor makes the PZ1 series easily configurable into small spaces.
In addition, Optiphase fiber stretchers are unique in that they do not require proprietary drivers. For most low-voltage applications (<±15 V), Optiphase stretchers can be driven by standard electronics such as signal generators, op-amps or other laboratory equipment without modification. For more information on how to drive PZ1 high-speed fiber stretchers see the downloadable application note.
