Ibsen launches E-PING Telecom gratings for WSS/ROADMs
16 Mar 2007
Ibsen Photonics, a leading supplier of holographic Phase masks, fused silica transmission gratings and optical spectrometer modules based on transmission gratings...
...today announced it's release of a new, extended wavelength version of it's PING gratings (Polarization Independent telecom gratings.) E-PING gratings will be produced on an OEM basis to specific customer requirements, but with standard specifications E-PING gratings offer >90% diffraction efficiency, <0.25 dB PDL and <0.25 dB WDL - just as the current PING gratings. Uniquely, these specs are upheld over an extended wavelength range of 1510 - 1596 nm. Product Manager Kristian Buchwald explains: "Our PING gratings have been rapidly embraced by WSS/ROADM manufacturers, due to both performance and the inherent stability of our fused silica transmission grating technology." He adds: "This development exemplifies the strength of this technology in offering stable performance over a broad bandwidth in addition to for example a great tolerance to incidence angle." Torben Jacobsen, President and CEO of Ibsen, comments: "In addition to the exciting product development in itself, our high-resolution spectrometer business is boosted by this unique grating - the E-PING grating has immediately been put to use within Ibsen by being incorporated into our extended wavelength I-MON FBG Sensor System Interrogation Monitors." Ibsen will be presenting its PING and I-MON products at the OFC exhibition March 27-29th in Anaheim, as well as at other important telecom and photonics conferences throughout the year. About Ibsen Photonics Ibsen Photonics is a leader in Phase masks and transmission gratings for a wide range of telecom, sensing and laser markets. The grating technology is leveraged in Ibsen's optical spectro- meter modules for FBG sensor interrogation systems and telecom DWDM networks. Ibsen Photonics furthermore is pursuing partnerships in other industries to expand their high-resolution spectrometer platform based on Ibsen pure fused silica holographic diffraction gratings.
