Workshop "Interconnection and fusion splicing of high-power optical fibers"

Visit our Workshop "Interconnection and fusion splicing of high-power optical fibers" on Tuesday 23th June 2015, 09:30-12:30am during LASER World of PHOTONICS

Register now 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 failure.
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 technologies
  • 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.

Date and Venue:
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

About the instructor
Andrew D. Yablon earned the Ph.D. from M.I.T. in Cambridge, MA. From 1998 until 2000 he was Senior Research Scientist at Vytran Corporation in Morganville, NJ, where he developed novel fiber processing and fusion splicing technologies. From 2000 until 2008 he was a Member of Technical Staff at OFS Laboratories in Murray Hill, NJ (formerly the Optical Fiber Research Dept. of Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies).  In September, 2008 Dr. Yablon founded Interfiber Analysis.

At LASER World of PHOTONICS we will present a comprehensive product range for the laser and photonics industry together with our international partners.
We are looking forward to welcoming you at our booth B2.203 and informing you about our newest Optical, Power and Thermal Management Technologies
