Lithium Niobate Electro Optic Modulator : Intensity Modulators : MXER-LN-10

The MXER-LN-10 intensity modulator is a high performance modulator exhibiting superior Extinction Ratio.

Its specific design relies on Photline Technologies patented “Magic Junction” The MXER-LN Mach-Zehder modulator is a key device in all applications where a combination of high extinction (contrast) and high bandwidth is required : laser pulse picking prior optical amplification, pulse generation or lidar based sensing systems are a few examples, as well as fiber optics sensors.
