It is crucial to develop ultra-high speed optical instruments to meet continuously growing demand for bandwidth for telecom and datacom applications. The Fraunhofer HHI researchers developed a 100 GHz Coherent Receiver Frontend (CRF-100G), offering 200 GHz optical bandwidth detection with polarization- and phase-diversity over C+L-band. Its unique feature of customizable optical extender heads with an RF connection of 1mm enables to maintain high signal integrity, resulting in robust testing and measurement performance for cutting-edge research and development activities. In addition, our ruggedized solution, available on request, provides convenient handling and operation for our customers.
