New ! Low loss Intensity and Phase Modulators for the 1000 nm band !
The NIR-MX intensity modultors and the NIR-MPX series phase modulators come now with typical insertion losses of respectivily 3.5 dB and 3 dB. This reduced losses combined with the 100 mW handling power allow to get more modulated output optical power and thus to expand the range of use of those LiNbO3 modulators and to build more efficient laser systems.
Rad Hard Fibers
The iXFiber radiation hardened active fibers are designed to be used in embarked space optical amplifiers and fiber lasers, they can be used with the associated space compatible passive fibers. Standard Rad Hard fibers are available for low power and medium power fiber lasers and amplifiers in the 1550 nm band. For the 1000 nm band, Rad Hard active fibers can be produced on demand.
NEW 28 Gb/s NRZ Reference Transmitter ModBoxes with a Variable Extinction Ratio
Both Photline 28 Gb/s NRZ 850 nm-ModBox and 28 Gb/s NRZ O-Band ModBox have been reference turn-key transmitters for optical telecommunication laboratories and production test beds. These instruments which provide clean open eye diagrams with above 20 dB SNR, can integrate now the variable extinction ratio option: VER OPTION. This unique feature allows users to set the ER between 3 dB to 12 dB for vertical eye closure, either manually or via computer interface. VER value can be adjusted within the 9 dB range or chosen from standard and pre-set values: 3 dB, 6 dB, 9 dB or 12dB.
Coatings & buffering for harsh environment
For more than 10 years, iXblue Photonics has developed large experience in the use of optical fibers in extreme conditions from undersea to space environment, oil and gas, nuclear, medical, and aerospace applications.
iXblue Photonics in now offering a large variety of most adapted coating and buffer options, beyond standard acrylate coating to optimize the product lifetime in those difficult operating environment.
Some of the materials we have applied to our custom optical fiber products include:
- Acrylate, Fluoroacrylate & High-Temperature Acrylate
- Silicone & Silicone/Acrylate
- Extrusion of custom materials Fluoropolymers (PFA, FEP, ETFE, PEEK, PVC)
