Millersville, MD, USA — Gould Fiber Optics, a leading worldwide manufacturer and supplier of premium passive fiber optic components, planar components and integrated modules; is expanding its product portfolio to include a miniaturized sized single-mode (SM) and polarization maintaining (PM) fiber based Manual Variable Optical Attenuator (MVOA). The MVOA is available in SM and PM fibers for the wavelengths regimes of 630, 780, 980, 1064, and 1310/1550 nm. It operates by manually moving a blocking element into the optical path. Gould’s variable optical attenuator is used for power adjustment in optical modules, systems and test platforms. The MVOA operates by precisely adjusting the power to any desired level through a controlled movement of the blocking element. Ideal for use in Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) modules, optical test and measurement systems, communication systems, optical sensors, as well as amplifier power control and equalization.
