LENSES AND OPTICS
7 June 2012
Fibre optic test and measurement equipment manufacturer Yenista Optics has added a new option to its manual optical tuneable bandpass filter, the WSM-160 BP.
This option offers an optimised wavelength range over the C-band from 1525nm to 1570nm and passband adjustment from 0.25 to 45nm. The standard WSM-160 was designed to enable engineers to extract channels with low insertion loss and no signal distortion thanks to its flat-top shape. It is particularly well suited for studying new modulation formats, high bit rate transmission, pulse shaping, and optical parametric amplification.
The new option addresses specific needs in new modulation formats where polarisation multiplexing is utilised. This option is an advanced feature in Yenista Optics’ already very broad range of benchtop tuneable filters.
