Cartridge Series

In this series, a large variety of optical components are modularized as cassettes which enable easy application for various optical experiments and optical measurement.
The polarization state, attenuation volume, optical characteristics of wavelength can be adjusted easily without cumbersome optical axis adjustment.
This series is recommended to be used as a tool for various research and development.
* This series can be applied for near-infrared and visible regions in addition to communication wavelength bands.


Features
- Easy cassette exchange and replacement
- Low insertion loss
- Crystals, etc. of your request can be modularized as cassettes.
