A phase modulator specifically designed to operate in the 1,000nm wavelength band has been introduced by LASER COMPONENTS. The NIR-MPX series use a proton exchanged based waveguide process that confers them an unparallelled stability even when operating at high optical power.
The NIR-MPX phase modulators come with high PER and low IL options, and featuring a high optical power (100mW) along with a low Vpi.
The NIR-MPX-LN-0.1 phase modulator has become the reference component for many applications involving lasers such as Spectrum Broadening for Suppression of the Brillouin Back Scattering effect (SBS), Pound-Drever-Hall (PDH) and Coherent Beam Combining (CBC) techniques.
One of the key parameters determining the performance of the modulation is the Residual Amplitude Modulation (RAM).
The NIR-MPX-LN-0.1 phase modulator combined with its matching RF driver DR-VE-0.1-MO can be specified with an exceptional 30dB of RAM.
