Manual Polarization Controllers
The PLC series are manual polarization controllers based on fiber squeezing technology and are available in several configurations.
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.
