Fiber Modulators / Photline

Qubig GmbH is proud to announce a strategic partnership with Photline Technologies, France to mutually strengthen its portfolios by distributing each others products in France and Germany, respectively. This allows us to always offer the best solutions for each customers particular electtro-optic modulation application. Whereas Qubigʼs free-space resonant EOMs satisfy with ultra-low optical loss (<1%), high laser power handling (>10W cw) and wide wavelength ranges down to UV, the integrated fiber modulators by Photline technologies offer uncompromising bandwitdh (>10 GHz) and modulation efficiency in both phase/- and intensity modulator (Mach-Zehnder) configurations.

Fiber Modulators

Photline Technology electro-optic fiber modulators offer wide bandwidth (>10GHz), high efficiency (low halfwave voltage Vpi), excellent extinction ratios (Mach-Zehnder Modulators) and good optical power handling in the NIR - IR wavelength range.

Modulator Bias Controllers

Modulator Bias Controllers (MBC) are required to stabilize the operating point of Mach-Zehnder Modulators (Intensity-Modulators). For critical applications and to achieve high extinction ratios (ER) the use of an external tap-coupler (e.g. OP-PD/TAP-800, -1000, 1550) and the MBC’s internal photodiode is recommended.
