Splicing of fiber arrays and end caps with CO2 laser technology

14 Feb 2020

Hanover, Germany, Feb. 12, 2020 – Well-established splicer devices for fiber-to-fiber splices have been on the market for many years.

The availability of CO2 laser-based fiber splicing systems which can control the position and size of the heating zone has opened up new possibilities in the splicing of single and multiple fibers to optical elements of various sizes and shapes. The ability to control the splicing temperature in real time (ms range) enables a new level of precise and repeatable splicing – particularly for complex fiber structures such as large mode area (LMA) and hollow core fibers. Based on this CO2 laser-based fiber splicing technology, FiberBridge Photonics offers end-capped fiber arrays for high power applications such as material processing, beam combining or medical applications, and the splicing of coated end caps, ball lenses, splitters and any other optics to the fiber end.

To achieve these fiber splicing tasks, FiberBridge Photonics also supplies the corresponding machines: 

The Fiber Array 3010 station for fiber array splicing and the Fiber End Cap 2540 machine for the splicing of optics of any size or shape to single fibers.

About this supplier:

FiberBridge Photonics develops, manufactures and markets optical fiber components, splice-free fiber amplifier modules and fiber processing machines for the production of fiber-optic components. Application fields for the products include the automotive industry, the laser industry as well as medical and sensor technology.
