Manual Polarization Controller

Manual Polarization Controllers

The PLC series, available in several configurations, are manual polarization controllers based on fiber squeezing technology.

Product Description

In the PLC series of polarization controllers, pressure is applied to a single-mode fiber to change its birefringence, and thus, the polarization of the output light. The user controls the amount of pressure via a thumb screw, and the pressure axis via a rotatable center section of the controller. They are available with built-in fiber or as drop-in devices that can control the polarization in fiber already in the system, Different connector configurations and sizes are also available.

Solutions and Applications


PLCs are useful wherever a manual polarization controller is needed. Applications include fiber laser and OCT system integration, as well as general lab use.
