Fibre Pigtailed AO Modulators, Frequency Shifters and Q-switches

Fibre Pigtailed AO Modulators, Frequency Shifters and Q-switches

AA’s fibre pigtailed devices can be used, depending on the model, as pulse pickersmodulators, fixed frequency shifters or Q-switches. Their standard versions are offered with a single mode polarisation maintaining fibre. However on request, they can offer different types of fibres or connectors. These devices are designed for numerous applications, including telecomunications, printing, microscopy, lidar, remote sensing, Quantum Optics.

Description

Fibre Pulse Pickers

AA offers a range of fibre pigtailed pulse pickers for 1030-1080nm, 1300-1600nm and 1900-2100nm with compact or VSF packages.

Other models for different wavelengths, type of fibre and connectors are available on request.
