High-power interconnect solutions up to 16W in Single-mode optical fiber
14 Sep 2021
The DIAMOND Power Solution (PS) connector series is designed for high-power fiber optic transmission on small core fibers to ensure high reliability. Our unique expanded beam technology reduces the beam power density at the connector interface, allowing connections with an incredibly low failure rate. Simultaneously, these connectors assure high transmission efficiency, thereby, minimizing Insertion Loss and maximizing Return Loss. By introducing new manufacturing techniques, we are now able to provide an improved PS+ solution offering approximately 36 μm SM expanded Mode Field Diameter (MFD). This results in the ability to provide high-power transmission of up to 16W within SM optical connectors.
Multimode Power Solutions
DIAMOND has also developed industrialized custom ferrules for direct light injection into multimode fibers. These AR-coated ferrules can be integrated into high-power diode modules and withstand free-space coupling of >100W. The heat extraction is made possible through engineered mode strippers.
In addition, DIAMOND offers connector-to-connector solutions for reliable transmission of several hundred watts in multimode fibers (ex. E-2000 PSm).
Laser modules with direct fiber plugs through Diamond connectors and adapters
Laser diodes with direct connector plugs eliminate the need for splicing and presents unquestionable advantages in terms of modularity and ease of replacement. However, an extreme positioning precision is mandatory to assure excellent optical coupling, also when switching connectors in the integrated mating adapter.
The rigorous quality control on DIAMOND products ensures reproducibility of the fiber core position within ± 1 µm after mating and de-mating of different connectors, combining unique features of mechanical precision and high-power handling.
