Highly Stable Polarized Fiber Optic Source

Ottawa, ON - March 19, 2002

OZ Optics Limited, a world leading supplier of fiber optic products for existing and next-generation optical networks offers for its premium line of fiber optics sources for polarization testing, the Highly Stable Polarized Fiber Optic Source (HIPFOSS).

The source produces light with exceptional polarization, power and wavelength stability, for the most demanding performance testing. HIPFOSS source incorporates thermal stabilization circuitry and built-in isolator to ensure that the signal quality is as pure as possible. Optical power stability is typically less than ±0.005dB under normal operating conditions. The rotatable polarizer in the optical system polarizes the output light to over 40dB extinction ratio. All HIPFOSS sources go through stringent quality control and performance calibration. This care in manufacturing makes the HIPFOSS ideal for the characterization of premium polarization maintaining components.

Sources are available with a variety of connector receptacle options at several wavelengths from 635nm to 1620nm. The standard output power is typically 1mW into a singlemode or polarization maintaining fiber. Higher power sources are available on request.
