EXFO’s new CW tunable laser offers 10 pm resolution and 100 kHz linewidth in the C or L bands
The EXFO FLS-2800 is a continuous wave (CW) tunable laser with a high-power output, narrow 100 kHz linewidth and 10 pm resolution tunability over the C or L band. This laser offers a cost-effective and versatile solution for various applications, including coherent/orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) transmission and WDM network emulation. The FLS-2800 is available in single- or dual-laser configurations.
The FLS-2800 is easy to directly control using the knob on the front panel. Each laser is controlled separately, and both wavelength and power can be adjusted quickly and precisely. It is also possible to view the status of and control the FLS-2800 remotely via the USB or Ethernet ports by means of EXFO’s TLM user interface.

Two new catalogues of CODIXX colorPol® polarisers out now
The CODIXX range of tough, dichroic glass-based colorPol® polarisers pass or stop polarised light, modulate or reduce brightness, diminish noise and lots more. With over two dozen standard colorPol® versions available for use throughout the UV, VIS, NIR and mid-IR wavelength ranges, CODIXX have released two catalogues to help you choose the right polariser for your application.
CODIXX colorPol® polarisers deliver:
- High contrast ratios
- High transmittance values
- Large acceptance angles
- Resistance to UV radiation and chemicals
- Resistance to temperatures up to +400 °C
The main colorPol® catalogue is complemented with a HT (high transmission) brochure especially for the optical telecoms industry.
CODIXX products are available in the UK and Ireland through Elliot Scientific. Please contact us for technical specifications, and details about standard and custom options.

New Products from EXFO – Tunable Laser Source & Matrix Optical Switch
EXFO has recently launched two new products that Elliot Scientific is able to offer to the UK and Irish telecom sectors.
IQS-2800 ITLA Tunable Laser Source – Up to 36 continuous wave high power lasers in one box
The recent upsurge in bandwidth requirements by carriers is pushing next-generation transmission systems to achieve new capacity limits via use of complex high-order modulation formats like dual-polarisation quadrature phase-shift keying (DPQPSK).
The new EXFO IQS-2800 is a modular test solution, housed in the IQS-636 platform, that provides researchers and engineers with a comprehensive way to design and test these future ultra-high-capacity network architectures. The lasers are continuous wave (CW), tunable, with a high-power output, narrow 100 kHz linewidth, and 10 pm resolution tunability over the C, L or A band.
MXS-9100 MEMS MxN Matrix Optical Switch – Any number of M input fibres can connect to any number of N output fibres
The new MXS-9100 optical switch is the perfect solution for centralised instrument sharing or automated testing in manufacturing. With its all-optical cross-connect technology, the MXS-9100 provides a unique combination of low insertion loss, fast protected switching and high reliability required in the lab or manufacturing environment. It allows any of M input fibres to connect to any of N output fibres in a fully non-blocking manner.
