Oclaro Starts Volume Production Of 400G Modulator
Represents the industry's first single carrier Polarisation Multiplexed Quad Mach-Zehnder modulator in mass production
Oclaro, a provider of optical communications solutions, has announced volume production of its lithium niobate (LiNbO3) Polarisation Multiplexed Quad Mach-Zehnder (PM-QMZ) modulators.
These new modulators enable data rates up to 400G on a single wavelength, allowing customers to quickly and cost effectively transition to faster network architectures for today's growing bandwidth demands, says Oclaro.
The Oclaro single carrier PM-QMZ lithium niobate external modulator is a high electro-optic bandwidth PM-QMZ device that integrates into a hermetic package an input beam splitter, four parallel Mach-Zehnder modulators configured for I-Q modulation, a polarisation combiner, and monitor photodiodes for power and bias control.
