PMS1000 Polarimeter and Polarization Scrambler/Transformer

PMS1000 is a combination of the PM1000 polarimeter with the EPS1000 polarization scrambler/transformer.

Key features

  • All functionalities and data of PM1000 and EPS1000
  • Ideal for synthesis of desired polarization states and polarimetric characterization of devices under test (DUT)
  • Opto-mechanical 2x2 switch (optional) can connect output of LiNbO3 polarization transformer directly to input of polarimeter. Insertion loss of each path is therby increased by ~0.5 dB (<1 dB).
  • Another opto-mechanical 2x2 switch (optional) can exchange output of LiNbO3 polarization transformer and input of polarimeter, to determine DUT reciprocity by backward measurement.
  • Power consumption: ~15 W (+5 V from included power supply 100-240 V)
  • Available as a desktop unit (with fixation for opto-mechanical switches) and as module cards
  • Switching between PM1000 and EPS1000 via control buttons, or parallel operation via USB
