FibreFab is introducing a number of new fibre-optic products include couplers based on waveguide technology at the European Conference on Optical Communication in Amsterdam in October
At ECOC 2001, FibreFab is introducing a number of new fibre-optic
products, including the first demonstration of a novel coupler
based on optical waveguide technology.
The new planar waveguide
optical coupler is formed on a single 'chip size'
silica block, and is a fraction of the size of conventional
The couplers can branch 1 x N optical signals up to 32
ports, and a typical unit measures only 10mm wide x 6mm thick x
The devices are compatible with standard ribbon fibre,
with flat or angle polished termination.
Also being introduced is
a new range of high-power fixed optical attenuators designed for
use with the new generation of high-powered lasers.
cover attenuation levels from 1 to 30dB and have power-handling
capabilities up to 1W.
FibreFab is also featuring its ranges of
high-performance Optronics patchcords and pigtails, all of which
outperform conventional products with return losses between -45dB
Each assembly carries its own warranty with fully
certified test results, manually recorded with full traceability.
