Where to Buy Optical Switches

Optical switches enable the transmission or interruption of optical signals, typically controlled with electrical signals. They are widely used in optical communications and for pulse picking in laser systems.

Before You Buy: Learn About Optical Switches

With its comprehensive resources, RP Photonics helps you to well prepare purchase decisions:

Some aspects to consider before buying optical switches: switching speed, insertion loss, thermal stability, alignment, mounting options, environmental stability, control mechanism, compatibility, ease of integration, durability.

optical switches

The PSW-LN and PSC-LN are two compact and high speed electro-optic polarization switches and scramblers. These integrated-optic devices feature a low-loss single-mode waveguide and are capable of modulating the polarization at frequencies ranging from DC to more than 10 GHz. They are available for the C and O bands.

optical switches

AeroDIODE has developed the fiber modulator – a high-speed intensity modulator and optical switch based on a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA). It is available over a wide wavelength range from 750 to 1650 nm. Key features are high speed (down to 1 ns rise/fall time), high dynamic range (>48 dB), high extinction ratio (>50 dB) and an easy to use graphical user interface with multiple software libraries (LabVIEW, Python etc.). AeroDIODE also offers the Semiconductor Optical Amplifier alone or the SOA driver in either CW or pulsed configuration.

AeroDIODE also offers a wide range of fiber coupled AOMs (Acousto Optic Modulators) with various types of digital (TTL) or analog RF drivers.
