World's Best Endless Rotating Half-Waveplate

[Owings Mills, Maryland, USA]: New Ridge Technologies, a leading manufacturer of Photonic Solutions for R&D and Industry, is pleased to announce enhancements to our NRT-2500 polarization control platform, offering up to 75kHz SOP rotations (i.e. over 471,000 rad/s) in “Spinner” mode. Three different ‘drift’ variations of the Spinner are available for different SOP test applications. These modes cover the entire Poincare sphere with continuous tilt of the rotation axis and elevation of the rotation along the rotation axis. It is world’s best endless rotating half-waveplate with constant, precise and user-configurable rotation rate. With rapid growth and deployment of 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s coherent transmission systems, the entire landscape of optical telecommunication industry and supply chain are undergoing a big shift towards advanced technologies, especially in ultrafast, dual-polarization, coherent based modulation formats. Thus, the requirement to test and verify fast and ultrafast SOP changes in the laboratories and in manufacturing environment has grown dramatically. The new 75kHz SOP-rotations Spinner, provided by NRT-2500 has raised the standard for even the toughest coherent system test environment. Along with multiple significant improvements both in hardware and in software, the newly enhanced NRT-2500 is offering unsurpassed performance in polarization Scrambling, Spinning, Tracking and other polarization operations.

Please visit our booth #3641 at OFC/NFOEC 2013 at Anaheim Convention Center from March 19 to 21. Our experts will be pleased to discuss with you on your applications. For more information, please contact New Ridge Technologies at (410) 504-3239 or send e-mail to
