PM Polarization Combiner/Splitter

SENKO’s Polarization Beam Combiner/Splitter is a high performance component that combines two orthogonal polarization signals into one output fiber. The typical configuration uses two PM fibers for the input and the SM fiber for the output. The device can also be used as a beam splitter.
