The ClearSpectrum™ TDCMB is a tunable, fully integrated emulator / compensator that provides accurate dynamic control of chromatic dispersion for test and measurement applications. The instrument features TeraXion’s fiber-Bragg grating (FBG) technology, which has a broad dispersion range and operational bandwidth. The TDCMB is available in benchtop and rackmount versions. The control software interface allows for easy integration and minimal setup time for experimental configurations.

The ClearSpectrum™ TDCMB combines chromatic dispersion compensation and emulation within a single, easy-to-use instrument. The integration of these features saves spaces, reduces cost, and simplifies experiment design, making the TDCMB ideal for R&D labs and production floors.

  • Our exclusive FBG dispersion management technology makes our devices extremely compact.
  • The tunable TDCMB is a dual-use chromatic dispersion emulator + compensator, making it a uniquely versatile instrument for research and testing.
