Motorized Polarization Controller

This orthodox polarization controller consists of a combination of polarization control elements, such as polarizers, λ/4 wave plates and λ/2 wave plates.
Each polarization element may be freely chosen, such as a single plate, achromatism for broadband wavelength, high-power compatibility, specification wavelength, phase difference specification, polarizer, etc. Various polarization conditions can be produced through 0.1-degree angle adjustments with a highly accurate rotation mechanism.
This product is recommended for a wide range of applications, such as optical communications, optical measurement, biotechnology, and other research institutions, etc


- Low insertion loss, low loss fluctuation, and high return loss
- Compatibility with a wide range of polarizing element variations
- Simple and flexible operation panels, angle specification, relative angles and constant speed rotation
- A wide variety of options and high functionality
- Capability to be manually operated and externally controlled

Key Applications

- PDL measurement in combination with optical power meters
