  • Extinction Ratio Meter

    Thorlabs, Inc.

    The ERM100 is an extinction ratio meter based on the rotating polarizer technique. This benchtop device offers a fast and simple way to measure the ER of Polarization Maintaining (PM) fibers. It is an easy-to-use device that may be utilized in many applications where the alignment of PM fibers is required.

  • Fiber End Face Interferometer

    Thorlabs, Inc.

    Thorlabs' GL16 End Face Interferometer measures and images the end face geometry of single- and multi-fiber connectors. A non-contact technique called scanning white-light interferometry (SWLI) provides high accuracy, repeatability, and reliability for fiber connector testing, particularly for pass/fail testing using IEC or Telcordia requirements. The system can be controlled locally through the touchscreen display or remotely through a browser-based application (see Software tab for details), allowing it to be easily integrated on the production floor.

  • Fiber Optomechanics

    Thorlabs, Inc.

    The versatile FiberBench product line includes Single and Multi-Axis FiberBenches as well as a wide variety of compatible components ranging from beamsplitter modules to wave plate units. FiberBenches form the foundation of a nearly infinite array of miniature fiber optic systems that customers have been building for the last decade. When used with the FiberPort Collimators/Couplers, a complete optical circuit can be constructed. The Fiber Launch Platforms are ideal for coupling a free space laser into a single mode, multimode, or polarization-maintaining fiber. Other accessories include fiber mounts, fixed and kinematic collimator adapters, and L-bracket mating sleeves.

  • Fiber Photodiode Power Sensors

    Thorlabs, Inc.

    These interfaces provide communication between an attached sensor and a PC or other external control unit. They are designed to be controlled via an external device or operated autonomously using the analog output; there are no controls or display screens.

  • Fiber Test & Measurement

    Thorlabs, Inc.

    Thorlabs manufactures a range of devices for testing and measuring the performance of optical fiber. Power, spectral signature, polarization, or end face surface geometry can by characterized with out-of-the-box solutions from our catalog. EO modulators, optical switches, and light sources are available to treat light being used on a test bed.

  • Fourier Transform Optical Spectrum Analyzer, 350 - 1100 nm

    OSA201C - Thorlabs, Inc.

    Thorlabs' Optical Spectrum Analyzers (OSAs) perform highly accurate spectral measurements. Compatible with fiber-coupled and free-space light sources, these compact benchtop instruments suit a wide variety of applications, such as analyzing the spectrum of a telecom signal, resolving the Fabry-Perot modes of a gain chip, and identifying gas absorption lines. Many commonly available OSAs use grating-based monochromators, which have slow acquisition times due to the need to mechanically scan the grating and average out noise at each wavelength. Thorlabs' OSAs acquire the spectrum via a Fourier transform using a scanning Michelson interferometer in a push/pull configuration. This approach dramatically improves the acquisition time, enables a high-precision wavelength meter mode with 7 significant figures and ±1 part-per-million accuracy, and allows the included software to provide robust statistical analysis of the acquired spectra, as explained in the Design tab.

  • Fourier Transform Optical Spectrum Analyzer, 600 - 1700 nm

  • Galvo Mirror Systems

    Thorlabs, Inc.

    Thorlabs offers Galvo Mirror Systems for both small (<5 mm) and large (<10 mm) beam diameters. Choose from single- or dual-axis galvo motor options as well as your choice of metallic silver, metallic gold, a dual band dielectric coating for 532/1064 nm, or a broadband dielectric coating for 400 - 750 nm.

  • Galvo-Resonant Scan Head and Controller

    Thorlabs, Inc.

    Our LSK-GR08(/M) Galvo-Resonant Scanner contains one resonant scan mirror and one galvo scan mirror that deflect an incident laser beam in X and Y, respectively. Identical to the galvo-resonant scanner used in our Bergamo® II multiphoton microscopes and complete Cerna®-based confocal systems, the 8 kHz resonant frequency of the resonant scan mirror enables much higher-speed scans than a galvo-galvo system. In our Bergamo system, the scanner can achieve 30 fps at 512 x 512 pixels image resolution.

  • Mode-Conditioned Light Sources

    Thorlabs, Inc.

    Thorlabs' Mode-Conditioned Light Sources are fiber-coupled LED sources that have an output with a flat-top profile in the far field. Common applications include the testing of multimode fused fiber components as well as verification of modal behavior in fiber-based setups. Standard fiber-coupled LED sources can have a range of output profiles that are usually not uniform and vary from source to source. This can be dependent on emitter orientation, alignment with fiber tip, and connector assembly. These mode-conditioned sources have been engineered to distribute light evenly into all transverse modes, resulting in an equilibrium modal distribution at the output. The front panel includes an adjustment knob to control the power and an output port that accepts 2.2 mm wide-key FC/PC connectors. A DS15 15 V power supply with a location-specific plug is included with each device.
