Coating of fibre end faces for increased capacity
By investing in new technologies, LASER COMPONENTS has been able to significantly expand its range of services for the coating of fibre end faces. The company is now in a position to produce larger quantities and at the same time has created ideal conditions for processing other fibre types.
This means that customers benefit from a larger product range and price advantages through cost-efficient production.
“Depending on assembly configuration, we can now process fibres with large bending radii or very large core diameters up to 1000μm. This opens up additional possibilities, especially in the field of multimode fibres,” explained Florian Tächl, fibre optics specialist at LASER COMPONENTS.
An improved ion source has also enhanced the surface quality of anti-reflective coatings. Depending on the coating and wavelength, LASER COMPONENTS achieves back reflections from 0.5% to 0.2%. Back reflections can impair their function or even damage components, especially when coupled into active elements.
