Laser Components introduced iXblue’s NIR-MX800-
These modulators have become the reference components for many applications. In telecommunications and particularly data-com applications (short reach SR4 standard), the NIR-MX800 is integrated in transmitters to generate bit rates of up to 56Gb/s, and also used by the scientific community for quantum optics, cold atoms and atomic clocks. Amplitude modulators offer high carrier suppression to generate high quality carrier-suppressed double-sideband (CS-DSB) signal. Both the NIR-MX800 and NIR-MPX800 are today used for CS-DSB.
The NIR-MPX800 is designed with a specific RF electrode, which enables generation of ultra-short optical pulses with very short rise times (in the order of a few picoseconds). Furthermore, we can offer extinction ratio greater than 30dB.
