The POS-202 Polarization Stabilizer maintains stable output states of polarization (SOP) against input SOP fluctuations.
The POS-202 architecture includes a fiber squeezer polarization controller, in-line polarization monitor, and proprietary algorithms. They are able to compensate for an input polarization discontinuity in as fast as 5 ms, or track without resets against a continuous input SOP rotation of up to 32π/s.
The POS-202 is a simple instrument that stabilizes the output SOP to linear, aligned to the slow axis of its output PM fiber.
- Reset-free operation
- Fast recovery time and tracking speed
Wavelength range 1550, 1310, or 1060±50nm SOP recovery time <5ms (1.5 ms typical) SOP rotation tracking speed 32π/s SOP accuracy <0.1 dB (PM output fiber, after polarizer) Isolation in orthogonal polarization 20 dB Insertion loss (IL)
<1.2 dB (POS-202)
