Agilent Technologies, Inc. introduces its N7781A compact high-speed polarization analyzer that provides comprehensive capabilities for analyzing polarization properties of optical signals. The N7782A PER analyzer is designed for high-speed and highly accurate testing of the polarization extinction ratio (PER) in PM fibers. The real-time measurement capability, in combination with automation interfaces, makes this unit suitable for integration in manufacturing systems like pigtailing stations for optical components. The N7783A thermal cycling unit is fully controlled by the proprietary N7782A PER analyzer, and it allows accurate and repeatable cycling of the temperature of the fiber under test. This family of polarization controllers provides a stable output SOP even with fluctuations and drifts of the input SOP as occurring, for example, through temperature drift and mechanical settling processes.
