Introduces Equinox™ Variable Gain Tilt Filters
Woburn, MA, September 8, 2003 - Boston Applied Technologies Incorporated (BATI), a leading developer of light intensity and polarization management products, today announced the introduction of Equinox™ Variable Gain Tilt Filters (VGTF) for EDFAs and for dynamic gain tilt adjustment in DWDM systems. Based on the recent breakthrough in OptoCeramicmaterials, Equinox™ VGTF enables dynamically flattening or tilting the broadband signal in a real-time fashion. This device contains no moving parts and offers high speed, low insertion loss, low polarization dependent loss (PDL), and wide dynamic range. BATI's advanced micro-optical design also enables the integration of the static gain flattening filter (GFF) and other components into one compact and robust package for space and cost savings and performance enhancement.

By adding the Equinox™ gain control series to the products portfolio, BATI is in a strong position to provide our customers a complete solution on the management of light intensity, polarization, and gain profile.
