Our AWGs are critical components use leading metro and long-haul systems by the tier-1 and tier-2 worldwide. Enablence provides both thermal and athermal AWGs for the C-band and L-band with standard channel spacings of 50GHz, 100GHz and 200GHz. Packaging and control options include integration of internal temperature controllers (for thermal stabilization of AWG set-point temperature), and tap/PD arrays for channel monitoring. Co-packaging of VOA arrays with AWGs form our VMUX product.
Enablence offers custom AWGs for special applications in addition to its standard telecom offering. AWGs with channel spacings down to 12.5GHz are possible and are used in spectroscopy, sensors and aerospace communications. AWG chips may be packaged with polarization maintaining fiber.
