High Speed In-Line Polarimeter
The POD-001 is a high-speed in-line polarimeter for detecting both degree of polarization (DOP) and the state of polarization (SOP).
The POD-001 in-line polarimeter is specially designed for low cost, high-speed polarization characterization without interrupting data traffic. It outputs four voltage signals for calculating both the degree of polarization (DOP) and the state of polarization (SOP) of the light passing through the device in microseconds.
PolaDetect™ is ideal for integration into polarization monitoring and polarization stabilization modules, or in polarization characterization instruments. It comes with a preamplification board to provide analog signals for SOP/DOP calculation, feedback control, and computer interface. Calibration matrices are provided with every device for the calculation. Devices without preamplification board and calibration matrix are also available for OEM purposes.
