Product description

A planar lightwave circuit available in port configurations such as 1×4, 1x6, 1x8, 1x16, 1x32, 1x64, 2x4, 2x8, 2x16 and 2x32 operating at dual bandpass 1260-1360 nm/1480-1580 nm with 100 nm bandwidth at each bandpass. G&H manufactures PLC components fully in-house in a clean room environment, through an ion-exchange-based process providing superior dependability and great performance. Our high quality planar splitters/couplers offer low insertion loss, ultra-low polarization dependent loss (PDL) and excellent uniformity.

Key features

  • Very low optical insertion loss
  • Superior optical uniformity
  • Low optical back reflection
  • Highly reliable and compact packaging
