Couplers, WDMs, attenuators, isolators, and circulators are passive optical components. In addition to these parts, we also offer active components such as optical switches.
A MEMS-based attenuator/shutter makes it possible to block collimated laser beams up to 500 mm in diameter in free-beam applications.
Agiltron’s etMEMS™ series is based on a patent-pending process, which is based on a microelectric/mechanical principle, and is extraordinarily compact in size with a large range of movement of the shutter. The simple design and direct control of this component make it a very attractive product, also for integration in complete systems. This component can block a collimated beam up to 500 mm in diameter and can be operated on air, thus meeting the standards according to Telcordia 1209 and 1221. Ideal for use in laser systems, these components can be used in the following applications:
