PHIX Cooling Carrier

The PHIX Cooling Carrier is an optional add-on to the PHIX Characterization Package. It consists of a thermoelectric cooler (TEC) on a mounting base suitable for easy connection to an optical table or heatsink. The unit provides cooling to the packaged photonic integrated circuit (PIC) and, in combination with a thermistor and TEC controller, it allows the PIC to be kept at a constant temperature.
