Santec unveils polarization scramble module

FEBRUARY 26, 2008 -- The device is adaptable for long-haul and submarine networks up to 10 Gbits/sec to minimize polarization-dependent gain in an EDFA.

FEBRUARY 26, 2008 -- Santec (search for Santec), a Japanese designer and manufacturer of fiber-optic components, subsystems, and optical instruments, has developed a commercially available hermetic sealed polarization scramble module (PS3300-S). The device is adaptable for long-haul and submarine networks up to 10 Gbits/sec to minimize polarization-dependent gain in an erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) for the first time, says the company.

The PS3300-S operates at a fast modulation frequency of 1 MHz, incorporating polarization scramble technologies from Fiberpro Inc. The module provides low degree of polarization (several percent at 0 to 50 degrees Celsius) in the C and L bands.
