Miniature Motorized Variable Optical Delay Line
The MDL-003 is a small motorized delay line for OEM applications. It uses a stepper motor and dual position sensors for precise delay control.
The MDL-003 is a fiber coupled delay line with the delay adjustment path in free space. It is designed for OEM applications that require continuous scanning capability and a small footprint. The standard device has a delay range of 100 ps. An internal mirror can also be installed to cause light to double pass the device, doubling the delay range. It uses a stepper motor and two position sensors for delay control. The single-pass version is available with SM or PM pigtails.
