for our Workshop
"Interconnection and fusion splicing of high-power optical fibers"
during LASER World of PHOTONICS. The number of seats is limited and
there are only a few spaces left.
High-power optical fibers are
displacing traditional bulk optical elements in applications such as
laser sources, optical amplifiers, and beam delivery systems. However,
their high signal or pump powers, large spot sizes or mode areas, and
large fiber diameters pose interconnection difficulties including
signal loss, mode conversion, polarization crosstalk, reflections,
localized heating, end facet damage, and even catastrophic device
Various technologies have been developed to address these difficulties
including mode field matching technologies, high-power fiber
terminations, modal content measurements, and large-diameter fiber
cleavers and fusion splicers.
This course provides attendees with both conceptual and practical
knowledge concerning high-power single-mode, few-mode, and multimode
optical fiber interconnection.
This course will
enable you to...
- Improve the quality and reliability
of your high-power optical fiber assemblies
- Avoid destruction of fibers and
lasers due to bad interconnections
- Compare competing interconnection
- Select equipment for high-power
optical fiber interconnection
- Evaluate and apply mode matching
technologies for high-power interconnection
- Estimate splice/interconnection
optical properties using numerical computation tools
- Test and measure high-power optical
fiber splice/interconnection quality
This material is intended for
designers and builders of high-power single-mode, few-mode, and
multimode optical fiber lasers, amplifiers, and beam delivery systems.
This course builds upon a basic knowledge of optical waveguide theory.
The workshop venue is the conference
room B13 at the Munich International Trade Fair during LASER World of
PHOTONICS 2015, Tuesday 23th June 2015, 09:30-12:30 AM
