Precision Optics are designed for Nd:YAG and fiber lasers.

March 18, 2015

Intended for use in Nd:YAG and fiber lasers, precision laser optics include lenses, beamsplitters, polarizing components, super flat mirrors, and high-damage threshold coatings that operate in 1 micron wavelength region. Key specifications, including transmission, wavefront, and laser damage threshold (LDT), are analyzed and measured by technicians and scientists. Subesquently, measurements are tested at RMI facility via high-power Nd:YAG laser. Read More

In-Line Fiber Polarimeter measures SOP changes.

March 13, 2014

Inserted into fiber system at any point, FireBird In-Line Fiber Polarimeter Module measures specific State of Polarization. Stokes parameters are obtained at >1M Sample/s and data can be processed as required by user through PC user interface. In addition to Stokes parameter measurement, included software provides Poincare Sphere display, Polarization ellipse display, and parameters such as DOP. Polarimeter can also be used for PMD and PDL measurements. Read More

Polarization Control Instrument offers pre-selected states.

March 26, 2013

Firebird utilizes technique that provides user-programmable state of polarization anywhere on Poincare Sphere. Facilities for user programming are included that enable users to select any state in order to program and switch between pre-selected states. This all-fiber polarization controller ensures max power throughput at selected state and also incorporates built-in method to move plane of output polarization. Read More

Polarization-Maintaining Fiber offers high birefringence.

December 18, 2002

Bow-tie fiber is available at operating wavelengths of 1300 and 1550 nm, has cladding diameter of 80 µm and coating diameter of 165 µm. Reduced outer cladding diameter improves coil-turn density. Applications include fiber-optic gyroscopes, voltage and current sensors, high-data-rate communications systems, laser pigtailing, connectivity between source lasers and modulators, and polarization-sensitive components.
