General Photonics Announces Accuracy Breakthrough for PMD and PDL Measurement: Published results confirm accuracy that exceeds NIST standards

General Photonics, the world leader in dynamic polarization and timing management, has developed a calibration system for the PSGA-101A Polarization Measurement System and confirmed that the accuracy of the PSGA system exceeds that of NIST artifacts

(PresseBox) (Wessling, ) General Photonics researchers have developed artifacts that are more accurate than standard NIST reference materials. The artifacts enabled them to confirm that the capability of the PSGA far exceeds all known commercial instruments with regard to accuracy, repeatability and resolution.

Emerging needs of market
PMD affects the reliability of fiber optic data when the transmission speed exceeds 10Gb/s. Emerging communication systems operate at 40Gb/s and future systems will operate at speeds beyond 100Gb/s. At these high data rates, the ability to accurately measure first order PMD (DGD) as well as second-order PMD (SOPMD) is critical. The General Photonics PSGA-101A is conclusively the most accurate system on the market today.

General Photonics Corporation is the leading designer and manufacturer of dynamic polarization and timing management products. General Photonics customers include researchers and test engineers around the world.
