An optic attenuator, is a fiber optic device used to reduce the power level of an optical signal in an optical fiber. GOuld’ offers both variable and in line fixed single mode (SM) and Polarization Maintaining (PM) fiber based attenuators.
Gould’s Miniaturized Type Manual Variable Optical Attenuators (MVOA) are available in Single Mode (SM) and Polarization Maintaining (PM) fibers for the wavelengths regimes of 780, 850, 980, 1064, 1310, 1480, 1550, 1560, 1950 & 2000 nm and operates by manually moving a blocking element into the optical path.
Gould’s polarization maintaining (PM) Inline Fixed Attenuators are passive, all-fiber wavelength flattenecomponents with fixed preciselycontrolled attenuation. These components offer very low back reflection, and highpolarization extinction ratio.
Gould’s high quality passive, all-fiber wavelength flattened (Broadband/Wide band), In-line fixed single mode fiber optic attenuators can be manufactured to a customer specified Optical attenuation level.
