Introduces New Generation of Acrobat™ Polarization Management Devices
Woburn, MA, June 18, 2003 - Boston Applied Technologies Incorporated (BATI), a leading developer of light intensity and polarization management products, today announced the introduction of a new generation of Acrobat™ Polarization Controller, which utilizes the recent breakthrough in OptoCeramic materials to realize ultrafast polarization conversion. The new generation device is capable of providing a polarization conversion in less than 200 ns; which is nearly 100 times faster than the first generation devices. Acrobat™ Polarization Controller was introduced into the market three years ago by Corning Applied Technologies, with features of high speed, low loss, smallest footprint, solid state operation, and no moving parts. Today the new generation of Acrobat™ sets a much higher standard for polarization management components. Same as other polarization management devices in the Acrobat™ family, this device meets or exceeds Telcordia GR1221 and GR1209 specifications. The applications of a high-speed polarization controller include polarization scrambling, polarization multiplexing, polarization generation, and polarization mode dispersion compensation.
