Smarter Modular Polarization Controller

Automated polarization dependent testing at your fingertips.

Coherent Solutions’ PolBlade brings automation to polarization dependent testing procedures. With its fast rotation of waveplates, you can rotate or scramble the polarization of your signal from the comfort of your remote computer.
