PCD-104

Polarization Scrambler

The PCD-104 Polarization Scrambler randomizes the instantaneous polarization state of output light to achieve a time-averaged depolarization effect.

Product Description

The PCD-104 combines a fiber squeezer polarization controller with specialized driver electronics to achieve uniform Poincaré sphere coverage in a few ms. Because it uses the resonance frequencies of the polarization controller, the scrambling rate is fixed. Because of the all-fiber construction, it has low insertion loss and low back reflection as well as minimal phase and amplitude modulation.

Solutions and Applications

Fiber optics

The PCD-104 is useful for any application that requires a quasi-depolarized signal, for example, to mitigate polarization sensitivity in a system.
