Boston Applied Technologies' Acrobat™ Polarization Rotator provides a continuously rotation of any polarized light with the applied control voltage. The device acts as a half-wave plate with a rotating axis. The OptoCeramic® technology enables high-speed, solid-state polarization rotation in a compact package. Both free space and fiber in-line versions are available, with wavelength range from visible to mid-infrared.
