Automatic extinction ratio measurement device
A Polarization Crosstalk Analyzer / PCA2000C enables you to analyze INSTANTLY! the polarization state such as an extinction ratio and azimuth angles and observe in REAL TIME! See the results on the monitor.
PCA2000C excels especially in monitoring and studying the polarization characteristics of various optical devices, and it is really convenient to use for in-site measurements of a polarization state.
Benefits / Features
- Extinction ratio (dB), principle axis angle and elliplicity angle are displayed in real time.
- Extinction ratios of a laser beam propagating in free space and the beam issuing from a fiber can be measured easily.
- Connection through RS-232C increases efficiency and allows automatic measurement.
