Firebird instrumentation range

Phoenix Photonics, the UK-based optical fibre components specialist, has unveiled a new polarisation control module as part of its expanding Firebird instrumentation range.

The polarisation controller module allows predetermined polarisation states to be selected and maintained. The on-board microprocessor is programmed via a simple PC interface to provide a range of pre-selected or user defined operations.. The instrument is all-fibre, providing low loss and high extinction ratio.
