Optical Component Analyzer

The measurement is based on the Mueller Matrix method, which offers
fast characterization of wavelength dependent optical parameters that are critical in today’s optical communication systems. The base model can have up to 8 channels, and the system is expandable to additional sets of channels for maximum flexibility.
