Mechanical Polarization Controller


  • User friendly
  • Low insertion loss
  • Low cost
  • Large operating bandwidth
  • Low back reflection


The ProtoDel mechanical polarization controller provides complete Poincare sphere coverage by adjusting the angles of the userfriendly paddles. The design utilizes three wave plates with fixed retardation and variable orientation angles to control the State of Polarization. The flexibility of the paddle design allows you to install a variety of fibers for use at different wavelengths. Additional options including integrated polarizers are available. These devices can be tailored to meet most application requirements Please contact our technical design team to discuss specific requirements.
