Ultrafast Polarization Scrambler (5MHz)

Enquire Now

The polarization scrambler is based on fast speed electro-optical materials functioning as phase retardation with three plates oriented at 0, 45 and 90 degree. The electro-optical materials are modulated at high speed. Unlike conventional polarization scrambler, it is uniquely non-mechanical.  It converts any input state of polarization to randomly polarized states fully covering the Poincare sphere. The polarization scrambler is designed to meet the most demanding operation requirements of ultra-high reliability, fast response, compact size to provide an ultimate solution for polarization randomization.
