Standard Polarization Maintaining EDFA

Amonics' polarization maintaining EDFAs are featured with high gain, low noise, and high polarization extinction ratio. The signal polarization is highly maintained after the amplification in the EDFA.The EDFAs are useful in the applications of fiber optic sensing, high capacity optical communications, and scientific experiments in nonlinear fiber optic.
