You will find the press releases in chronological order below. If you are looking for press releases from a specific department, use the navigation bar on the side. We differentiate between general company news and news from the product groups: photodiodes, IR components, photon counters, lasers, measurement devices, fiber-optical components, optics, and laser accessories.

MPC-203 – High-Speed Scrambling


Multifunction Polarization Controller

With its new MPC-203 multifunction polarization controller, General Photonics presents a high-precision device for generating and adjusting polarization states in optical fibers. When it comes to depolarization, this high-speed device shows what it is capable of: It reaches up to 780,000 revolutions/s in tornado scrambling mode, which is more than ten times the speed of its predecessor, MPC-202. Tornado scrambling is a proprietary algorithm developed by General Photonics and provides highly efficient scrambling at a quasi-uniform change rate.

As a polarization controller, MPC-203 allows for manual adjustment of different characteristics, such as speed and waveform. It can also be used to create deliberately random polarization states.

Laboratories use polarization controllers to characterize components or to evaluate the performance of sensor systems and fiber-optic interferometers. The results are of crucial importance in optical communications and fiber optic sensor technologies.

LASER COMPONENTS sells polarization controllers of the MPC-20X series in German-speaking countries.
