Photline Technologies phase modulators for sensing applications

Photline Technologies MPX-LN-0.1 pigtailed phase modulators

MPX-LN-0.1 pigtailed phase modulators for sensing applications operate over a -40°–85°C temperature range while keeping stable insertion loss and polarization extinction ratio. Available for the 1550, 1310, 1064, and 800 nm optical bands, the LiNb03 modulators require <3.5 V of high impedance drive voltage and offer over 100 MHz of modulation bandwidth.

Photline Technologies MPX Phase Modulators for Sensing

MPX-LN-0.1 are pigtailed phase modulators specially designed for sensing applications. They operate over a wide temperature range (-40°C - +85°C) while keeping stable insertion loss and polarization extinction ratio. MPX-LN-0.1 phase modulators are ideal devices for fiber optics sensors operating in harsh environments.

The MPX-LN-0.1 phase modulators series are LiNb03 modulators available for the 1550 nm, 1310 nm , 1064 nm and 800 nm optical bands. Each device feature wavelength specific waveguides and optical fibers.

The MPX-LN-0.1 phase modulators are compact, easy to drive devices that require only a few volts (< 3.5 V) of high impedance drive voltage and offer over 100 MHz of modulation bandwidth. They have been tested over -40°C - +85°C in both insertion loss and polarization extinction ration (PER) and shows a high stability. Their extended temperature performance makes them devices of choice for fiber optics sensors and instruments operating in severe conditions.
