High Power Full C-Band PM EDFA

Amonics offers polarization maintaining EDFAs for various applications. Including free space communications, coherent beam combining, and detection system. The output light is linearly polarized with high polarization extinction ratio. The compact turnkey benchtop or 19” rackmount instrument incorporates a user-friendly front panel housing with a LCD monitor display, key switch, power adjust control knob and optical connectors. A RS232 or Ethernet computer interface is also equipped.
