Advanced Multifunction Polarization Controller - PolaMight™

PolaMight combines GPC's PolaRite™ III polarization controller with proprietary polarization control algorithms to achieve a wide range of polarization control functionalities. including high speed quasi-uniform rate polarization scrambling, random- rate polarization scrambling with Rayleigh rate distribution, discrete-state polarization scrambling, sine, square, and triangle wave SOP modulation, and manual polarization control functions.In particular, the “Tornado” quasi-uniform rate polarization scrambling function can achieve a high SOP scrambling rate of up to 60,000 revolutions/s (more than 360 krad/s) with a narrow rate distribution clustered around the highest rate. In short, the MPC-202 is an ideal tool for production or laboratory testing of polarization related functions and parameters, including passive/active component characterization, performance tests of fiber optic interferometers, sensor systems, RF photonics systems, etc. The quasi-uniform rate high speed scrambling function is particularly useful for SOP tracking speed testing of coherent receivers. The square wave SOP modulation function is ideal for SOP recovery time tests.
