Advantest Q8163 Optical Fiber Polarization Scrambler

  • Low Fluctuation of Insertion Loss
  • Variable Speed Polarized Wave Control
  • Continuously Change Polarized Waves


The Q8163 is a optical polarization scrambler which has a function to change the state of output light polarization with using a polarization element of optical fiber type. The state of output light polarization can be changed continuously by driving 3 polarization elements of optical fiber type. Therefore, all the states of polarized light (all the points on the Poincare sphere) can be output.

As a polarization element of optical fiber type is used inside, the fluctuation of insertion loss are ±0.005 dB or less when the state of polarized light changes. Therefore t provides the efficiency in evaluating various optics of small PDL (Polarization Dependent Loss).

By driving the polarization element of optical fiber type, the state of output light polarization can be changed at high speed. It is possible to measure polarization dependability of various light components at high speed.

Product Family: Q8163

InstraView™ Equipment Inspection

Buying used equipment doesn't always have to be a shot in the dark. We know there are plenty of differences when it comes to used equipment and quite often, choosing between different pieces is difficult, especially when the equipment is not sitting right in front of you.

Well, what if you were able to see a piece of equipment before you purchased it? Not just a picture from the manufacturer's website, but the actual piece of equipment you would receive.
With InstraView™, we move you one step closer to inspecting the equipment you're interested in without having to wait for the equipment to show up at your door.

InstraView™ works in your web browser and allows you to view the actual piece of equipment you're interested in before purchasing. You can zoom in close to see the labels with the serial number or zoom out to see the overall condition of the equipment.

It's like having the store come to you!

InstraView Request Form
