  • Electro-Optic Modulators

    Thorlabs, Inc.

    Thorlabs’ selection of electro-optic (EO) modulators includes free-space and fiber-coupled LiNbO3 modulators. Free-space amplitude, phase, or resonant modulators can operate at speeds up to 100 MHz. We also offer liquid crystal EO modulators for speeds up to 2.5 kHz. Fiber-coupled intensity, phase, or IQ modulators for speeds up to 40 GHz can be driven by our EO modulator drivers. A modulator bias controller is also available for use with fiber-coupled intensity modulators.

  • Electrophysiology

    Burleigh's® microscope platforms, micromanipulators, and accessories provide leading edge stability and control for electrophysiology research. The Gibraltar® platform supports microscopes from popular third-party manufacturers such as Olympus, Zeiss, Nikon, and Leica, and our manual and motorized micromanipulator assemblies offer excellent control for patch clamping experiments.

  • 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 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.

  • 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.
